Taking care of nervous patients at Dental Smiles London

If it matters to you, it matters to us! Our experienced team always take a gentle, kind approach with nervous patients, and will put your mind at ease as soon as you walk into one of our practices in Kings Cross, Euston, and Gray’s Inn.

Dental anxiety doesn’t need to hold you back

According to the NHS, one in four of us dreads a visit to the dentist! It’s extremely common to be apprehensive about visiting the dentist; many people are worried that treatment will be painful, or had a bad experience at the dentist as a child. No matter what your fears, we understand and respect how you feel.

The most common reasons for dental anxiety that we see:

All of these reasons We believe everyone has the right to be pain-free, and to have the confidence to show off their smile. Your fears and anxieties shouldn’t stop you receiving the dental care you want or need, and we have lots of experience helping nervous patients overcome their fear of the dentist.

How we help nervous patients at Dental Smiles London

There are a few ways we go above and beyond to make sure our anxious or nervous patients feel comfortable during their appointment.

For exceptionally nervous patients, we offer a safe sedation option so we can carry out the treatment you want or need while you’re in a very sleepy, relaxed state (and you won’t remember anything afterwards).

1

We can meet with you outside the treatment room, because lots of people find the presence of the equipment stressful. We have a comfortable space where we can take the time to sit and talk face to face, giving you the chance to explain what makes you anxious, what your fears are, and what you want to achieve.

2

We’ll then gently and carefully outline the ways that we’re best able to support you, and give you some information on each of our dentists and their backgrounds, individual training, and experience, so you can have complete confidence that you’re in the very best hands.

3

You’re under no obligation, but if you choose to go ahead with treatment, we’ll talk you through your treatment plan and give you the chance to ask as many questions as you need to feel confident with us.

I have severe anxiety around dental treatment & Frances & her team where outstanding in their compassionate and understanding approach whilst undertaking the dental work I desperately required. Not only did the result far exceed my expectations, but 3 days on the recovery was swift. Thank you so much Frances, I wouldn't consider anywhere else for further treatment.
