Gentle Dentistry for Nervous Patients

We fully understand why patients are nervous about dental treatment and that many experience fear and anxiety or even phobia. Our patient-focussed approach is based upon a philosophy of ‘gentle dentistry’. Gentle dentistry is a commitment to doing all we can to minimise pain, discomfort and stress using a range of tried and tested techniques.
Along with this approach some of our clinicians have attended dental hypnosis courses and know techniques to help you relax during your appointment.

Below are some of the clinician’s tips for helping any nervous patients;

  •  Firstly, come into the practice before you book your appointment. We are sure that our modern environment and friendly staff will elevate any anxiety you might have.
  • If you are nervous, please let our dental team know. We have techniques to help our more nervous patients, like creating a sign to stop treatment if you feel you have reached your limit. Remember we will take the treatment at your pace.
  • We recommend you bring an MP3 player in to your first appointment, as listening to music can help you relax during your appointment.
