Are you a Nervous Dental patient?

Do you feel nervous about visiting the dentist? Do you get yourself worked into a tizz before you’ve even picked up the phone to book the appointment? Does a family member struggle with the thought of getting their oral health checked over?

If so, you’re not alone.

According to research carried out by National Smile Month (May 18 – June 18), a whopping 1 in 7 adults are fearful about visiting the dentist. And as a practice that cares about preventative dental care, we’d like to see that changed (to 0 in 7!).

We take our time with new patients; learn about the reasons they’re unnecessarily concerned. That way, we can really build a rapport with them, help them to relax and ultimately, enjoy their experience with us.

A patient of ours, Julie, was more than happy to share her experiences with us – and what a journey she’s been on! Julie began her life requiring multiple facial surgeries that unfortunately continued throughout her childhood. And with that, her fear of the dentist began.

Into adulthood and the fear didn’t fade; in fact, it got worse. Julie began checking, every morning, for abscesses; hoping and wishing that today wasn’t going to be the day she’d have to go to the dentist. When Julie finally came to see us here at Beaufort Dental Health Centre, she’d actually visited the dentist just 3 times…in 30 years!

Upon popping along for her consultation with Clare, a treatment co-ordinator and our Practice Manager, Julie said she ‘’…felt listened to…’’; that she was ‘’…no longer just a number…’’.

‘’Beaufort Dental Health Centre couldn’t be kinder or more reassuring; they tell you exactly what they’re doing, when they’re going to do it and how they’ll be doing it.’’ (Julie now visits regularly and looks forward to coming along to see the team).

As a family practice, we understand very well the worries and concerns that may try and appear but we will always be kind, supportive and reassuring to patients.

Please feel free to pick up the phone for a chat – we’re here to help you smile confidently!

I've been reading about several movie players recently. It's pretty confusing honestly. I've decided upon Tubemate and ShowBox right now.

We take as much time as is needed with new patients, find out about the reasons they are pointlessly concerned. That way, we can truly fabricate a compatibility with them, help them to unwind and at last, make the most of their involvement with us.

Into adulthood and the dread didn't blur; truth be told, it deteriorated. Julie started checking, each morning, for abscesses; trusting and longing that today would not have been the day she'd need to go to the dental specialist.

This blog is giving us some sort of good perspectives to an individual because it helps a lot of people to have the courage to visit their Dentist without having any fear. Nowadays, it is really important that we have to visit our Dentist for regular check up to avoid dental problems.
