The Smile Gallery East Grinstead

Nervous, anxious or phobic patient information

If you fear a trip to the dentist, you’re not alone.

Fear of the dentist is a common phobia, so nervous patients are not as rare as you may think.

That is why we strive to make our patients’ experience with us as comfortable and relaxing as possible.

Our team is trained to work with nervous patients

We understand that each patient requires a different approach to overcoming their anxiety.

Whether bringing a family member to the appointment for moral support, arranging treatment so it isn’t overwhelming or requesting sedation dentistry.

We support you and ensure a calming atmosphere so you can get the dental treatment you need for a healthy, gleaming smile.

Often, dental anxiety stems from childhood. So, this can be challenging to overcome.

However, we have found nervous patients experience reduced stress and increased confidence when they feel in control of the treatment process.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“As a very nervous patient who suffers from severe anxiety, I found The Smile Gallery very helpful and respectful of my needs. I have to be put to sleep to have any work done, and they have been very accommodating. I came in with severely damaged teeth, thinking I would need full dentures, but I was assured that wasn’t the case. Two appointments later, and I am so pleased with how they have started! I am halfway through my treatment and couldn’t recommend them enough!” Kirstie, RH19

Dr. Esen and Olivia were extremely gentle on me. I'm a big baby! Dr. Esen numbed my gum and I felt nothing more while she filled the upper tooth. Thank you.

So pleased I went to the Smile Gallery. I’ve had two veneers done with them as well as my usual check ups. Can’t fault them!

Just want to say a MASSIVE thank you too Dr Rahul and Nicole. I was in yesterday for composite bonding and I’m over the moon with my new teeth. Dr Rahul listened to exactly what I wanted and I couldn’t be happier. Both Nicole and Rahul were so kind and reassuring💕would recommend to anyone ☺️

A colleague of mine recommended this brilliant team 👏 😀 that I can only speak highly of when it comes to their professionalism and dedication. I happen to live quite far BUT that honestly is all worth it. Dr Rahul & Dr Jaime ABSOLUTELY THE BEST 👏 👌 I know it's going to be a long journey for me but having such wonderful team will make the process less stressful. I can't thank them enough for being ever so patient, also the ever so lovely receptists whomno matter how busy they are they always welcome you with such warmth. Huge thanks for making a difference to those of us that in a way left it a bit "too late" going to the dentist.
