LET US HELP YOU GET THE DENTAL CARE YOU NEED
SCARED OF THE DENTIST?
Dental phobia is completely normal. Having a fear of the dentist is not uncommon and we treat nervous patients all the time.
We know it isn't always easy for our patients to see the dentist. Some of our patients have fear due to past experiences, stories they have heard or even just because they haven't been to the dentist in a long time.
But what we know is that if you do not see a dentist regularly you are more likely to develop problems - which is the opposite of what we want.
WE HELP OUR PATIENTS OVERCOME THEIR FEAR
We are very passionate about providing gentle treatments to nervous patients and helping our patients overcome their fear of the dentist. Dr Rhona Eskander is a dental phobia certified dentist so you can rest assured that you will be in safe hands.
We do this by providing a relaxed and friendly environment where appointments aren’t rushed. We take our time discussing the patient’s concerns and going through all treatment options in a way that is easy to understand without dental jargon. We find that this helps calm our patients and reduces anxiety when they are part of the planning and decision making. If needed we break treatment into smaller chunks of appointments so as not to overwhelm patients and in this way become more confident and comfortable with seeing the dentist.
It can be difficult to overcome your dental phobia on your own. We recommend that you call us and talk to one of our team in advance to let them know how you feel.
We can proudly say that our patients comment often on how they are no longer afraid and that we are a very friendly and welcoming dental practice to come in to.
