It is perfectly normal to be nervous about seeing the dentist. Many patients fear the unknown and the thought of being put through painful treatment is enough to put any body off coming to see the dentist. Easier said than done, but rest assured we have seen it all and can definitely help with overcoming your fear.
At Forest Road Dental Practice, we promise that you are in safe and gentle hands and will be in control at every step of the way. From using the best anaesthetics available and taking things at your pace, you can be assured that you are in good hands. If during any treatment you feel you need a break or something is uncomfortable, all you need to do is raise your hand to alert the dentist and they will immediately stop, giving you the control and reassurance that you need at all times.
Believe it or not, the most common thing we hear at the end of treatment from anxious patients is, “Is that it?”. We know we’re doing our job right when it is our nervous patients who recommend us to their friends and family on a daily basis!
