Nervous Patients

Do you feel worried or fearful before a dental appointment? Or have you ever avoided making an appointment to visit the dentist because you feel anxious? Unfortunately, dental phobia is a common yet little discussed problem faced by many.

At Knowle Dental Practice we understand that fear of attending a dentist may affect your decision to make an appointment – whether for a routine visit or to receive urgent treatment.

That’s why we take special care to understand and acknowledge your concerns and will do all we can to help you feel as relaxed as possible.

Some patients feel nervous or worried and we want to reassure you that we will take your treatment one step at a time, so you can feel confident and informed about the entire process.

Whether you require additional support when visiting us or would like to talk to the dentist before we start an examination, we’re more than happy to address your concerns.

Dental treatment is safe and comfortable and we work hard to ensure you feel at ease. We offer the following steps to make your dental visit a calm and relaxed experience:

  • You can attend with a friend or loved one for additional support
  • We will show you the equipment and explain the treatment before we begin
  • We will treat you with empathy and sensitivity
  • We offer local anaesthetic so you don’t feel uncomfortable whilst in the dental chair
  • We are experienced and highly skilled dental practitioners
