We understand that many people may feel very anxious or worried about their dental treatment. This may be due to fear of pain, negative past experiences or other reasons. You are not alone in this feeling and we acknowledge that this can make visiting the dentist very difficult for some people. It is very important to us that we assist you to feel as comfortable as possible throughout your dental treatment. We endeavour to communicate with you clearly and answer any questions you may have regarding your treatment needs. We will always treat you respectfully and in a warm and caring manner, working with you to help you through your dental treatment which usually results in a more positive dental experience.
There are other options available, including medications, nitrous oxide, and referral for sedation or general anaethesia. Through discussion between yourself and your dentist, it can be established whether one of these options may be suitable for you.
Often people may feel worried about visiting the dentist if they haven’t had a dental visit in many years. This is quite normal and you don’t need to feel embarrassed or delay your visit for this reason. It is our wish to help you achieve optimal dental health, which is often achieved by commencing treatment sooner rather than later.
