Overcoming Dental Anxiety at Woodbridge Hill Dental Practice
Welcome to Woodbridge Hill Dental Practice, where our compassionate and experienced team is dedicated to helping nervous patients feel at ease during their dental visits. We understand that visiting the dentist can be a daunting experience for some, and we want to ensure that your dental journey is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
Our Comprehensive Approach for Nervous Patients
- Open Communication and Listening: We believe that everyone deserves to be heard. By taking the time to listen and understand your fears, we can create a personalised strategy for your treatment. We encourage you to share your concerns and anxieties with us, and we will do our best to address them and put your mind at ease.
- Step-by-Step Explanations: Knowledge is power, and we want you to feel empowered during your dental experience. Our skilled dentists in Guildford will explain each procedure in detail, answering any questions you may have. This helps build trust and ease your concerns, making your visit more relaxed and enjoyable.
- Comfortable, Relaxing Environment: We have designed our practice to feel more like a spa than a dental clinic. Our comfortable and plush surroundings will help you feel at home, and our friendly staff will ensure that your visit is a pleasant one. Our goal is to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere for all our patients.
- You’re in Control: We understand that feeling in control can help alleviate dental anxiety. We will only begin treatment when you feel 100% confident about going ahead, and we will allow you to set the pace. We may use strategies like hand signals when you want to take a break, ensuring that you always feel comfortable and in control during your visit.
- Gentle Sedation and No-Drill Dentistry: To help you feel more at ease during your treatment, we offer a variety of sedation options, including inhalation and IV sedation. Our experienced sedation dentist will discuss these options with you during your initial examination, ensuring that you feel relaxed and comfortable during your visit. Additionally, we offer no-drill dentistry for a gentler approach to dental care.
- Supportive, Skilled Staff: Our highly-qualified, GDC-registered dentists and caring staff are here to support you throughout your dental journey. We are committed to helping you overcome your dental anxiety and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile.
At Woodbridge Hill Dental Practice, we allow you to set the pace of treatment and talk with you at length about how to make your visit more pleasant. We may use strategies like hand signals when you want to take a break, and we can also offer no-drill dentistry and gentle sedation.
Yes, we encourage you to bring a friend or family member if it makes you feel more comfortable. Many of our nervous patients find this additional support helpful during their visits.
We want you to feel as relaxed as possible during your visit. Some patients like to listen to music, while others perform breathing exercises or bring their own headphones. Whatever helps you feel relaxed is encouraged.
Not if you don’t want to. We understand that it may be helpful for you to become familiar with the sights and sounds of the clinic before starting any procedures. Your first appointment can be dedicated to getting to know our team and discussing your concerns in a comfortable environment.
