Nervous Patients

At Smiles Dental Care we appreciate that some patients can get anxious just thinking about a visit to the dentist. Our experienced dentists have helped thousands of nervous patients to feel able to undertake dental treatment and be delighted with the results.

We are not here to judge, just to help. Listen to Fiona, a Partner at Smiles Dental Care talk about nervous patients

We believe in going at your pace and understanding your concerns, we know these can be very personal to you. It may be that we need to undertake small treatments first and build confidence. Rest assured we have many examples of patients who have been delighted they came to see us and happily received the treatment they wanted to improve their smile.


Even with a caring dentist, some patients feel they would also like sedation. Neil, a Partner at Smiles Dental Care, is the only dentist we have who provides sedation and he describes it here:

Please call our reception if you feel nervous and wish to discuss options with an experienced staff member without going near a dental chair.
