New/nervous patients – how we deal with it

You are not alone if you feel nervous or afraid of visiting the dentist, but here are some suggestions for things you can try to help you overcome your fear.

Your first appointment will be a check-up so you won’t be given any treatment, however, as well as identifying your future treatment needs it will also give you a chance to get to know us.

If it helps to have a friend with you to your appointment we’re happy if they accompany you throughout the check-up or treatment.

Another suggestion is to listen to music during your visit using your own headphones. It may help you relax.

If you need it we can offer sedation using medication to help you relax during dental procedures, so that you can have the treatment you wish.
