Overcoming your fear of the dentist...
It is not unusual for some patients to be nervous about visiting a dentist and many of our patients were nervous before their first visit to us. Here at Bexleyheath Dental Practice we provide you with modern and comfortable surroundings where we will make you feel relaxed as possible.
Our friendly and helpful reception team will welcome you to the Practice. If you need to be accompanied in the surgery this is absolutely fine. All of our dentists and nurses are trained to help nervous patients feel as relaxed as possible throughout the treatment.
If you know you have a dental problem and feel so nervous that you won’t seek treatment, please do call us and let us put your mind at rest, or at least relaxed enough to make an appointment – it is vitally important to be treated as soon as possible. We are able to offer sedation if you feel you would be more comfortable, which will be an additional charge but will ensure you really are at ease.
Here’s what some of our nervous patients have said about their visit:
I am possibly one of the most nervous patients the practice have ever had. However from the moment I step into reception, the ladies put me at ease, and when it is time to see Gita who has helped me through many a ‘shaky’ moment, the nurses guide me in encouraging me all the way.
I cannot thank you all enough as I believe my daughter who loves going to the dentist would have been as bad as me if it wasn’t for the kind hearted staff at the surgery. Thank you.
I would highly recommend this dental surgery as everybody who works there ‘goes the extra mile’ to make going to the dentist as painless and pleasant as possible.
I would like to thank Dr Shaffie who gave me my sedation, he completely relaxed me and told me exactly what he was going to do, so I felt I was in very safe hands.
Feeling nervous of a visit to the dentist is quite normal.Rest assured we are all here to make you feel as comfortable as possible.Dr Hussein Shaffie
