Nervous Patients or Dental Phobic Patients in Perth
Here at Cherrybank Dental Spa in Perth, Scotland, we have over 26 years of dental experience and have helped OVER 3000 patients who would describe themselves as anxious, nervous, or have a dental phobia (phobia of the dentist) – to achieve the smile they want.
We have experience helping the most nervous patients past their concerns by being sympathetic, caring, and very gentle. We have patients who travel from all over the UK for their treatment at Cherrybank Dental Spa due to our safe, proven and modern techniques.
Cherrybank is Accredited with Slowdentistry
One of the unique things about Cherrybank Dental Spa is the practice is designed with nervous patients in mind. Owner Elaine Halley had a bad dental experience as a child; the internal systems ensure this never happens at Cherrybank.
We regularly treat people who have not visited the dentist for many years and feel like a “hopeless case”. In many cases, it is not as bad as you think. There is no need to feel embarrassed. We understand – we’re professionals and do not judge. We will have seen worse. The relief of knowing can be a heavy burden lifted.
Look at our patient testimonials to see what nervous patients say about us.
We often find that knowledge empowers you – knowing what will happen to you can often dispel an unwarranted perceived fear. You will never have any dental treatment without fully understanding what it is, agreeing to go ahead, and agreeing to what it will cost.
We appoint one of our Treatment Co-ordinators to be your advocate. They will be your point of contact and can explain anything in detail and layman’s terms in an office environment, i.e. not in the dental chair. Your treatment will be designed to suit you – not us.
Due to our advanced techniques and equipment, we’re able to conduct a lot of dentistry without using the drill. We do also offer sedation.
We do many other little things to help take the edge off your fear, which may be connected to the other senses:
Touch – All our dentists are specially trained in gentle techniques, and if you raise your hand for them to stop – they will stop. We have back massagers and heated scarves/gloves on the chair.
Sound & Vision – Lose yourself in music or a film with DVD glasses or our iPod with Bose noise reduction headphones.
Smell – the sense that evokes the strongest memories.
Aromatherapy is available; we don’t use clove-smelling products that give that dentist-like smell. We even bake bread in the practice as an alternative, comforting aroma.
