At Dental Pods we have built our reputation on our team being able to put nervous patients at ease. We understand that visits to the dentist can be nerve wracking and we have many ways of helping patients gradually build their confidence.Very few people enjoy going to the dentist. For many people, previous experiences have left them with underlying dental fears and phobias of the dentist, which in turn leads to missed dental appointments, neglected teeth and in worse cases dental pain.
How we can help?
Nervous patients are welcome to book a time to come in, free of charge, and meet us informally before having a check-up. The whole dental care team is sympathetic to your anxiety, and we will listen carefully to your concerns and take everything entirely at your pace so that you can eventually look forward to your visits.
The first step you can make in overcoming dental phobia is to recognise it and understanding that something can be done about it. There are several ways in which we will try to help you overcome your anxieties, and many things that you yourself can do:
- It is important for you to communicate your fears and concerns to our dental team prior to your appointment.
- The dentist will provide a full explanation of the procedures involved – and will give you the opportunity to ask any questions.
- We have designed the surgery so that it provides a relaxing environment, which includes music.
If you are embarrassed at the state of your teeth, don’t be! Be open and honest with the dentist. The important thing is that you’re taking a step in the right direction to resolve the issue. We are here to help you.
