You’re here because… a bad experience at the dentist in the past has left you anxious or afraid
Many people come to us telling us they’ve had a painful or bad dental experience in the past. It’s always sad when we hear this because it doesn’t have to be like this. Just because you’ve had a bad dental experience, it doesn’t mean history has to be repeated.
“My mouth wasn’t numb enough during a procedure.”
“The dentist didn’t explain things to me well. I didn’t really understand why the treatment was needed.”
“I felt pressured into making up my mind.”
Many people have had a bad dental experience that has stopped them completing the treatment they needed. Unfortunately, dental problems don’t fix themselves and, over time, this means that what once may have been small problems that were easily fixed will then develop into bigger problems that require more invasive and more complex treatment that’s more expensive.
Often, by the time these problems begin to hurt, it may be too late to save the teeth at all. This then means that the poor patient has to endure teeth extractions and surgery that could have been easily avoided. And, of course, this doesn’t make for low-stress dental visits. It’s a vicious cycle.
The first thing to do is to find out what happened during your bad dental experience in the past. By listening carefully and understanding what has triggered you in the past, we can avoid them so you never have to go through that experience again.
We understand that trying out a new dentist can be daunting. You can come into our practice, have a look around, meet everyone and just get the vibe of it – see if it looks like the kind of place you’d be comfortable with.
