Nervous Patient Testimonial – Jane 2016
Dental Phobia

Did you know that the main reason adults put off seeking dental treatment is not lack of time or worries about costs, but fear of visiting the dentist? At The Park Dental Clinic we understand patients can be nervous about visiting the dentist, and are experienced in working with nervous patients.

There are many reasons behind people's fear of the dentist. Unpleasant or traumatic past experiences, phobia of needles and fear of the sights and sounds of the dental surgery are just some of the reasons people give for dental phobia, while for others there is no one specific cause of the fear. Whatever the reason, we will always treat you with a gentle, caring and respectful attitude, and will work with you to help you get the treatment you need.

We aim to make our practice as relaxing as possible, and do everything we can to minimise stress. We have a convenient car park at the practice and aim not to have patients waiting too long for their appointment. Our caring, experienced team is always happy to talk through any concerns you may have – for about half the cases of nervous patients we see, all they need is a bit of extra time and space to talk through their concerns. Modern dentistry has seen huge advances in techniques and materials used, and many treatments are practically pain free. However, if you are still feeling nervous, we also offer treatment under sedation.

Dentist Trishan Malhi is fully qualified in providing sedation, and we offer a range of treatment options. With intravenous sedation, while you are awake and aware of what is going on, you will be relaxed and free from anxiety. If you have a phobia of needles, we provide nasal sedation first to relax you before providing IV sedation.
