Do you feel anxious about visiting the dentist?
Don’t worry, you’re certainly not the only one. If you are feeling nervous about an upcoming dental procedure, don’t hesitate to let us know when you arrange your appointment. We’re here to help put your mind at rest and ease your anxiety. We are more than happy to have an informal chat about your worries, show you around the clinic and demonstrate how everything works. There won’t even be any pressure for you to sit in the dental chair if you feel uncomfortable.
A huge amount of people admit to feeling nervous about going to the dentist and dental phobia is very common for a number of reasons. These include fear of dental instruments (drills and needles for example), negative experiences in the past and even anxiety about what the dentist might think if it’s been a long time since your last check-up.
Visiting the dentist on a regular basis is essential. Regular check-ups mean that potential problems are spotted and stopped before they begin to get worse. Rest assured that you’ll be in the best, safest and most understanding hands at Frederick Dental Clinic, as our principal dentist Dr Peter Dwyer is a Dental Phobia certified professional.
