Dental Phobia

Is there anything that can help me with my fear of the dentist?

Yes. We know that for some people, going to the dentist can be an anxious time and that they will put off going for dental treatment. Our dentists are sympathetic about these feelings, and you can ask us about ways to help. To reduce your stress levels, we can assure you we will take the time needed to listen to your concerns, your appointment will never be rushed and we will explain what we plan to do in an easy-to-understand way.

This, combined with specific pain reducing instruments like the Wand will help make your visit much more pleasant than you imagined. Why not watch a DVD through our DVD glasses, or listen to your (or our) ipod as a distraction during your treatment?

Our practice has been designed to be as calming as possible, with our waiting rooms being very unclinical and relaxing. Nor will there be that smell, that can bring back memories of previous bad experiences, that is so common in some practices.
