Nervous Patient Care 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 is proud to have helped thousands of patients cure their fears and access vital care.


We’ve created a relaxing atmosphere as far from the traditional perception of a dentist’s surgery as possible.


Our gentle approach puts communication first. We listen. Then we listen again. And finally, we listen some more!

No Stress. No Worries

Sedation is often confused with general anaesthetic. Here’s Nick Crombie on the difference between the two.


Our Unique Nervous Patient Program

We understand how nerve-wracking a trip to the dentist can seem—especially if you’ve had a bad experience.

At The Dental Suite, we have gained a national and international reputation for treating nervous patients, with patients travelling from Europe and the US to experience our famous Dental Suite Nervous Patient Program.

Take a look at our video testimonials to see how we’ve transformed the way nervous feel about dental care and helped them regain confidence with transformational treatments

Oh, My Goodness!

Catherine says she can’t remember a thing about her five hours of treatment at The Dental Suite.

Worried? Forget About it!

Sedation lulls you into a peaceful, dreamlike state during treatment. Like most patients, Catherine says she doesn’t remember a thing.


Putting YOU First

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.

We welcome visits from prospective patients to look around as many
times as it takes to get used to the clinic—with no pushy sales pitch.

Meet the Gentle Dentist

Our principal dentist Dr Kalpesh Bohara is a Dental Phobia-Certified dentist and an expert advisor to the website

He has written extensively and advised dentists on helping patients overcome their fears.

But more importantly, he has helped thousands of nervous and anxious patients overcome their fears and discover how to stop worrying about the dentist.


Relax with Sedation

Sedation is a fantastic way to relax during your treatment. The medication puts you into a pleasant, dream-like state. Most patients come around after sedation without even realising they have had treatment!

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.

We offer intravenous sedation by injection, either in the back of your hand or your arm. The procedure involved will be fully explained at the consultation appointment.


The Wand

The wand offers a more comfortable and less intimidating alternative to traditional syringes for administering local anesthesia, particularly for nervous dental patients.

Its advanced technology and gentle approach contribute to a positive dental experience, helping patients overcome their fears and receive necessary dental care with greater ease.

I was quite nervous about my root canal treatment but Dr Vikash and his assistant went above and beyond to make sure all procedures were painless and comfortable. Highly recommended specialists, extremely professional, great clinic make me feel welcome and gave me reassurance I needed. I’m not anxious anymore to come back for the next visit. Thanks to my amazing dentist, assistant and the clinic


Anna has been amazing throughout my treatment, always explaining everything to me. I finally had my braces off today and I’m so happy. Rebecca was also so helpful.

Fantastic dental practice and great staff. Been going here for a while now. I always had anxiety and panic attacks because I had a very bad experience with the dentist. But now I can’t be happier. They are so welcoming and friendly and calm you down.

I am really proud of my result – I could not recommend dental suite enough! The Invisalign treatment is the most efficient, quick process and has given me the most desired results. Dr Spoorthy and the lovely dental nurses were so friendly and helpful during this process and I could not thank them enough for helping me achieve my dream smile.
