Dental treatment for nervous patients

If the thought of going to the dentist makes you feel anxious, you’re not alone.

At Smil, our caring team understand that you can experience dental anxiety at any age. We take the time to put your mind at ease during your visit to our relaxed clinic.

Why am I experiencing dental anxiety?

You could be experiencing dental anxiety for several reasons. You may remember a treatment as being particularly painful or maybe you felt scared during a previous appointment. The anxiety could stem from childhood and not fully understanding what was happening during those early visits. Being in the dental chair can also make you feel a lack of control. And if you haven’t visited a dentist for a while, you could be worried that you’ll be judged for having poor oral hygiene.

At Smil, our dentists take pride in being good with nervous patients. We can work with you to overcome your dental anxiety in a number of ways:

Discussing your concerns

Our compassionate team are available before, during and after your appointment to answer any questions you may have and ease your mind.

Bring a loved one to your appointment

If you feel like you need support during your dental appointment, feel free to bring a friend or family member along. We want you to feel relaxed throughout the entire process and if bringing someone with you will help you stay calm during your visit, just let us know.

Keeping your mind distracted

Our dentists are good at keeping our nervous patients distracted. We can talk to you as much or as little as you’d like throughout your appointment to keep your mind on other things.

Why choose Smïl?

In accordance with our ethos, we do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. For this reason, we dedicate our time and effort to learning and understanding the cause of your phobia and building a trusting relationship. This time is our investment in your future dental health.

Timely, Tactful, and Therapeutic Approach

Our patients who have previously been anxious often come to us after having experienced something unpleasant at some point. For dental treatment to be successful, we never underestimate the importance of trust and communication.

We believe that dentistry should be an enjoyable experience. Our compassionate team will take the time to listen to your concerns and work with you to ensure that you have a positive visit.
