Did you know that the main reason adults put off seeking dental treatment is not lack of time or worries about costs, but the fear of visiting the dentist?
At The Park Dental Clinic, we understand patients can be nervous but rest assured we intend to make your visit as comfortable as possible!
There are many reasons behind people's fear of the dentist. These are some of the reasons people become dental phobic:
However, some people have no cause at all! Whatever the reason, we will always treat you with care and respect 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 front of the practice and aim not to keep patients waiting. However, if we are running late, we will keep you posted!
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 discuss their concerns. This also gives you the chance to gain your dentists' trust and build a good relationship.
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 are more than happy to refer you for sedation.
Dr Trishan Malhi is fully qualified in providing sedation and offers a range of treatment options. However, we are currently not offering sedation at this moment in time. Please keep an eye on our website for when this changes.
