Nervous Patients

We understand that some people feel anxious about coming to see us and may even have a dental phobia that prevents them from receiving essential treatment. However, we have plenty of experience in treating nervous patients, in fact we have been called the ‘dental practice for cowards’. But, joking aside, we know it’s not cowardice that causes a reluctance to visit the dentist but aa variety of factors including:

  • Concerns about potential pain
  • Fear of feeling out of control
  • Fear of being judged if teeth are in bad condition
  • Negative childhood experiences
  • Medical smells, sounds and equipment
  • A needle phobia

We want to make your dental experience as comfortable as possible and will always listen and respond sensitively to any of your concerns. Our team consists of highly experienced and qualified professionals who keep up to date with advances in modern dentistry and frequently refresh their skills so you can be sure of receiving exceptional care.

On top of all this, our wonderfully relaxed setting will ensure you always feel very welcome when you walk through our doors.
