Practically everyone feels a certain level of anxiety and discomfort at the thought of seeing their dentist. Some people, however, are so distressed that they avoid routine examinations and treatment altogether, compromising their oral health. If this sounds like you, don’t be embarrassed. We understand.
At Shirley Dental Practice we take a friendly, understanding, and compassionate approach when working with nervous patients. We explain each procedure fully and tailor our appointments to each patient, never rushing you so that you can become comfortable and at ease. To minimise discomfort and help you relax, we can also offer you the option of oral sedation, inhalation sedation or IV sedation where appropriate.
If you suffer from ‘dental phobia’, please let us know. We will do everything we can to make your appointment with us a positive one.
Our experienced team is dedicated to offering you a relaxed, comfortable dental experience at all times.MEET THE TEAM
