Anxious Patients

The dentist, Salisbury - relaxing candle

We do our utmost to take special care of all our patients and pride ourselves in our delivery of painless dentistry – EVERY TIME.

Providing a gentle touch, comfortable surroundings and relaxing music all help make your visit to us a pleasant experience.

We never rush and will ensure your visit to us is pain free and as enjoyable as possible.

Want to be totally relaxed during dental appointments?

We understand that visiting the dentist can be very stressful for some.  The availability of conscious sedation ensures that those of you who might otherwise hesitate to attend a dentist can do so without any worries.

A drug called Midazolam can be given by mouth and/or in your arm, which alters your state of consciousness and relieves your anxiety to enable you to enjoy your visit to the dentist without any worries.

Once your treatment is complete, you can relax in our private lounge until you are ready to be taken home.

Anxious about dental treatment or needle phobic?

At THE dentist, Salisbury we have a special interest in caring for anxious patients and will do everything possible to make your visit to us as stress free as possible.

All of our clinicians are highly trained and well versed in dealing with nervous patients. Fear of pain and dental treatments is a major deterrent to the acceptance of dental care today and produces a heightened anxiety in many patients.  But did you know that with the advances in modern dentistry virtually all dental care could be completed without any discomfort to the patient.

Pain free dentist

Your dentist will numb any treatment area to ensure that you have absolutely no pain during treatment. A cream is first applied to your gum in the area being treated. This freezes the surface to enable us to administer local anaesthetic painlessly. Your dentist will allow plenty of time for the area to be completely numb before starting any treatment.

At all times – you, the patient are in control. We can stop at anytime; you can rest, sit up or have a walk around.

Your dentist is there to take you through your most pleasant dental experience yet!

Stress free dentist

We have a lot of clients who worry about gagging or choking during treatment. We completely understand and have even experienced the fear ourselves. We have a variety of methods to ensure you remain totally calm throughout your visit with us.

We are pleased as punch to say that many of our patients report feeling excited about the prospect of arriving at their desired outcome and retrospectively actually enjoyed their experience at THE dentist!
