Being afraid of the dentist means different things to different people.
Maybe it’s the thought that treatment will hurt, or that the sounds and smells bring back memories of bad experiences as a child.
We understand that dental visits can be overwhelming and may cause high levels of anxiety for some patients. So much so, they let their dental health suffer as a result. This causes gum disease and tooth decay which if left untreated, can become painful and expensive. And, those with a dental phobia have a higher risk of gum disease and early tooth loss.
Avoiding the dentist may have emotional costs as well. Discolored or damaged teeth can make you self-conscious and insecure. You may smile less or keep your mouth partly closed when you speak. You can become so embarrassed about how your teeth look that your personal and professional life begins to suffer.
Our friendly staff and dentists are trained and motivated to help you overcome any anxieties providing personalised care and service at every interaction, making your, or your family’s dental experience a relaxed, comfortable and positive one.
We take the time to listen to your fears and concerns, and help you to achieve your dental goals. To ensure a stress-free enjoyable experience, we invite you to visit our clinic to have a look around and meet our dental team.
So, if you’re putting off much needed dental treatment because you’ve had a traumatic dental experience in the past, or suffer from high dental anxiety, please let our team help you smile again.
