Dental Phobia Experts

Sunshine Dental Dental Phobia

What is Dental Phobia?

Every day we speak to nervous patients who are terrified to tears by the mere thought of booking a dental appointment. We understand your fears and respect your worries you have at seeking treatment. If it matters to you then it matters to us.

We are an extremely experienced friendly team who pride themselves in being able to build your confidence and trust in us. We will happily talk to you on the phone to reassure you and help you get through our front door.

To begin with, we can meet you outside of the surgery taking the time to sit and talk to you face to face, giving you the chance to explain what makes you anxious, what your fears are and what you wish to achieve.
Each new patient consultation is a longer appointment than our routine examinations so that we can spend the time getting to know you so you have complete confidence that you are in the very best hands.

Some patients like to know every detail whilst others like to just put on some headphones and listen to music. Either way there will be a hand to hold if you need it and we will go at your pace ensuring you feel in control at all times.

Helpful Techniques

There are a number of ways to alleviate your dental anxieties, some of which you can put into practice before you even arrive.

  • Book a morning appointment, so you’re not worried about it all day
  • Remember that your first appointment is only a consultation: you can talk everything through with us ahead of treatment
  • Bring a friend with you to your appointment to help give you support
  • Talk to family and friends about their positive experiences at the dentist
  • Start slowly: ask us for a simple clean and polish to help you get used to dental procedures

We ensure all our patients have all of the information they need to make an informed choice about treatments and we will talk through all of your options during an in-depth consultation.
