Nervous Patients

If you are nervous about seeing the Dentist you are not alone – many people of all ages and backgrounds feel anxious about general dental, implant or cosmetic treatment.

I’m a nervous patient, what can I expect at my “New Patient Examination”?

You can expect a caring, patient, non-judgmental, professional and experienced approach to dealing with anxious patients.  Your New Patient Examination is carried out at your pace with constant explanation and reassurance and is an opportunity for the Dentist to inspect your current dentition, take some x-rays and advise you appropriately.

We employ “stop signals” therefore ensuring you are in control at all times.  Dental fear is a real and paralyzing barrier to seeking help and advice.  It is a negative cycle that without the right support and encouragement is impossible to break.  We have a wealth of experience and are here to help with a variety of techniques at our disposal.

 

Treatment Plans

In proposing treatment, we will always seek your consent and take account of your own wishes.   We will explain all the options and costs before embarking on any treatment, so that you can make an informed choice.

Stop Signals

You are always in control whilst in our care.  You have the power to start or stop treatment by simply raising a hand.

Pain Management

All the Dentists at our practice are most concerned with providing pain free anaesthesia and employ all the latest techniques to assist in this.
