We love nervous patients
"I'm really nervous"
Nervous patients are very welcome at Smile Lounge. We love nervous patients. We see nervous patients all the time and we enjoy helping them achieve dental health and a perfect smile.
How do we do this?
We listen without judging or criticising. We won't make you feel guilty or embarrassed. We want to hear your story.
We'll find out exactly what it is you are nervous about: maybe you had an experience that has really undermined your confidence and your trust in dentistry?
We have a calm manner
We will work slowly and sensitively
We will give you a Stress Beeper so you can stop us at any time
We play calming music - many patients fall asleep while having their treatment
We offer Oral and IV sedation - a really effective way to manage anxiety
Have you ever used the "cough technique" to help with injections? Adult and child patients report no pain when we use this technique.
