At Archway Dental Group, in Islington, we understand and empathise with patients who are nervous about visiting the dentist. Fear is the main reason that patients in the UK cite for putting off dental visits, which can have a devastating impact on their dental health and can leave them suffering for a long time before pain forces them to seek treatment.
All of our staff at all of our clinics are caring, professional and experienced in working with nervous patients. We will never be judgemental and have treated many patients who have neglected their oral health through fear of the dentist. Our aim is to help you overcome this fear, and get the treatment you need and the smile you deserve. Our team will reduce dental fear and welcome you to our practice.
We have several treatment options available for nervous patients. Our dental team is caring, calm and well trained to listen and understand your needs. All of our team members practise gentle and caring dentistry, and will do everything we can to help you beat your nerves.
For some patients, all that is needed is the time and an understanding ear to discuss fears with. Because we use the most modern techniques and equipment, most treatment should be pain-free. We are happy to talk through these techniques with you, and to share testimonials from other nervous patients who have been treated successfully.
We will also ensure that you know how to signal to us if you need a break during treatment. Particularly during longer treatments, many patients need five minutes to relax, and you don’t need to worry that you are inconveniencing or holding up the dentist – your comfort is our primary concern.
