We believe an informed patient is a happy patient, so do get in touch if you would like to find out more about our treatments.
Dental phobia is very real, as it leads many patients to avoid the dentist for years and even decades! It’s estimated by the NHS that 1 in 4 people in the UK suffer from dental phobia. This is very damaging, as your dental health could be jeopardised by not seeking help when you need it.
Overcoming your dental anxiety can seem like a steep mountain to climb, but every journey begins with the small steps. You’re welcome to meet our team and acquaint yourself with the dental practice before your appointment, so you can learn your surroundings. Meeting our team will help you build trust in us and our services, so that you feel more comfortable visiting us for a check-up.
Dental hypnotherapy helps you to manage your stress and anxiety levels, bringing them to more controllable levels and allowing you to relax into your appointment. Through a series of relaxation techniques and thought exercises, our registered clinical hypnotherapist Kerry Lewis will help you change your relationship to the dentist.
One of the most commonly nerve-wracking things for a nervous patient to consider is treatments. If you find you associate the dentist with scary metal tools, you aren’t alone in this. However, your first appointment is always just a check-up for us to acquaint ourselves with you and your mouth. There will be no drilling or other treatments unless you consent to it, and we’d never pressure you into a decision. Your first dental appointment is often the first hurdle, but we will simply look at your teeth and advise you from there.
Nervous patients often avoid the dentist until they really can’t bear their dental maladies or supposedly deal with the problem themselves. Visiting the dentist is very important because we can detect warning signs, treat them if they develop, and prevent their development in the first place. Visiting a dentist is very important for treating small problems before they become bigger.
What our clients say
Everybody who works here is so friendly and reassuring, nothing is too much trouble. The dentist is the most professional, down to earth dentist I’ve ever met and most importantly, very gentle and thorough. I will not go anywhere else and if Google reviews did more stars, this dental practice would always get full marks from me.
