We fully appreciate that some people worry about seeing a dentist and may even suffer from a dental phobia, stopping them seeking dental care altogether.
We have treated a number of nervous patients over the years and acknowledge that a reluctance to have dental treatment can stem from a variety of causes, including:
- The dental setting with its associated smells, sounds and equipment
- Anxiety about pain and a feeling of being out of control
- Concerns about being judged about the condition of their teeth
- A bad childhood dental experience
- Fear of injections
However, it is important to see a dentist regularly so problems can be picked up before they get any worse, which can avoid the need for more extensive treatment. Dental care is also important to your overall general health.
To help you get the preventive care and treatment you need, we will do everything we can to make your appointments as stress-free as possible. We have created a warm, welcoming environment where you will never feel rushed, and we always listen sensitively to any of your concerns, as well as clearly explaining procedures. You can also rest assured you will be receiving the very best care because our experienced team keep up-to-date with advances in dentistry and regularly undertake additional training.
We can help you overcome your fears by treating you with gentleness and patience, and when you do come and see us, we will try to ensure you have a relaxing and comfortable experience.
