Fear of the dentist is quite common, and individuals who experience dental phobias may find it hard to maintain their oral health.

Our dentists employ a variety of strategies to help nervous patients feel at ease before and during their appointment.

What causes dental anxiety?

Many dental phobias stem from a negative experience with a previous dentist. These occurrences often date back to the patient’s childhood.

Occasionally, some individuals with a phobia of the dentist have never been to a dental practice before, so their anxieties are simply a fear of the unknown.

How can I overcome my fear of visiting the dentist?

The first step is to contact us and talk through your fears with a member of our team.

We find that many dental phobias ease if the patient feels they are in complete control of the process. Any questions you have, our friendly and knowledgeable team will answer to put your mind at rest.

If you are preparing to undergo a treatment you are feeling particularly nervous about, it may help to discuss the procedure with your dentist, so you know exactly what to expect.

I am still experiencing dental anxiety — what else can you do for me?

For our very nervous patients, we offer sedation treatments to help you relax before and during a dental procedure.
