Nervous Patients Leicester & Loughborough
Many people feel nervous when they visit the dentist, and their heart races with apprehension just at the thought of the dentist.
For some the fear stems from a previous bad experience, whereas others have a phobia of needles, gagging or are too embarrassed because it’s been a long time since they last visited a dentist. Whatever the reason, our team are proud that they have helped 1000’s of patients cure their fears.
The Dental Suite nervous patient program
At The Dental Suite, we fully understand how frightening the experience of a trip to the dentist can seem and especially to someone who has had a previous bad experience. At the Dental Suite, we have gained both a national and international reputation for treating nervous patients, with many patients travelling across the country and from all over Europe and as far as the US to experience the famous Dental Suite Nervous Patient Program. Please see our video testimonials to see how we have transformed patient’s anxieties.
Dr Kalpesh Bohara is an expert advisor to the website dentalphobia.co.uk, having contributed articles and provided detailed opinions and advice on how patients can overcome their fears.
How is the Dental Suite different from other practices?
We have gone to great lengths to provide an environment that is calm and relaxing and as far from the traditional perception of a dentist’s surgery as possible. Our approach is gentle we believe communication is the key to the first step in overcoming your anxieties so first, we listen and then we listen and finally we listen some more!
Your trip to the Dental Suite is all about YOU, how you feel and what we can do to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
- Is there a piece of music that helps you relax?
- A particular scent of aromatherapy oil that you like?
- Do you have a movie in mind that you would like to watch during your treatment?
- Would you like a warm blanket during your treatment?
We welcome visits from prospective patients to ‘look around’ and there is no pushy sales pitch. We are positive that the more relaxed atmosphere of the practice will help those who are understandably anxious about the prospect of dental treatment.
Do you offer sedation?
Yes, we do, sedation is a fantastic way to relax during your treatment, the medication puts you into a nice dream-like state. We are lucky to have an experienced sedation team which includes two hospital consultant anaesthetists to provide patients with a deeper level of sedation should they need it.
Most patients come round after sedation not even realising that they have had extensive oral surgery. We offer intravenous sedation which is given by injection, either in the back of your hand or in your arm. The procedure involved will be fully explained at the consultation appointment.
If you are considering dentistry but either haven’t been for many years due to fear or a quite simply anxious about the unknown, book a consultation to pop in and have a chat about how we can help you overcome your fears.
