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.
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
Before we start, we will ensure you’re comfortable, and if anything changes along the way, just let us know!
Raise a hand during your appointment, and we can take a break and resume once you’re happy to.
