Dental Fears & Anxiety

Please Talk to Us If You Feel Nervous

Your first step is to let us know that you do feel nervous when seeing a dentist. Our dental team is extremely easy to talk to and we can chat with you to find out why you feel this way. Some people feel very anxious about not being in control while sitting in the dental chair while others have deep-seated fears relating back to a previous bad experience. Dental fears and phobias can also be a learned behaviour, perhaps picked up from parents who had their own fears about dental treatment. Whatever the reason,
we can find a solution and will discuss the most appropriate and comfortable way for you to receive treatment.

How Can You Help Me Overcome My Dental Fears?

It’s important to remember that your very first visit to our dental practice is merely for an examination. It is equally important to understand that you will always be in control and can stop any examination or treatment at any time simply by raising your hand. We can make sure that treatment proceeds at a pace you feel comfortable with. If you are particularly nervous or haven’t visited a dentist for a while and perhaps need quite a bit of treatment to restore your dental health, we may suggest you think about general anaesthetics. This will allow you to sleep comfortably through treatment and might be a faster way to help you regain good dental health. We have lots of experience in helping people who are nervous about seeing a dentist so please contact us as we can help restore your dental health and your smile. You can call us on (02) 6922 6840 or visit the practice at Kooringal Mall, 32/269-293 Lake Albert Road, Kooringal NSW 2650.
