Nervous patients


We understands that a trip to the dentists can cause a level of anxiety for nervous patients. If you feel in any way worried about your visit, please be assured that our team is fully trained to make your visit as pleasant as possible.

Dental Phobia is something we take very seriously. The team at Smart Smiles careis expertly trained to be as sensitive and accommodating as possible towards nervous patients. We will take time to listen to you, to your worries and fears and tailor treatment to suit your needs. We always explain any treatment fully and answer any questions you may have.


You have no need to be embarrassed about any problems you may have with your teeth, we will always have seen someone with greater problems than yours. We can offer a choice of music and dvd’s for longer treatments. We usually give a topical numbing gel prior to giving an injection to try to reduce any pains felt.


Please contact us with any concerns ahead of your appointment and we will do our best to put your mind at ease in preparation for your visit.

It is estimated that as many as 75% adults experience some degree of fear when going to the dentist. Approximately 5 to 10% of adults are considered to experience dental phobia. If you're extremely nervous sedation is an option.
