Phobias

At Shine Dental, we fully understand how daunting the experience of a trip to the Dentist can seem, especially to someone who has had a previous bad experience or has not visited for years. We believe that the best treatment for an anxious patient is kindness and consideration. We do all that we can to take great care to ensure a stress and pain free visit to us at the practice.

We pride ourselves on providing an environment that is calm and relaxing and as far from the traditional perception of a dentist’s surgery as possible. You will be greeted by our friendly reception team and offered a choice of refreshments whilst you sit and unwind.

Nervous Patient Journey

  • Is there a piece of music or a radio station that helps you relax?
  • Would you like a chat before going ahead with the treatment?
  • Do you understand every aspect of the treatment?
  • Would you like a warm blanket during your treatment?
  • Would you like a pillow to support your neck during treatment?
  • Do you feel too warm or too cold?

Helping you feel at ease

The order of the day here at Shine is gentle. From your initial chat with your personal care coordinator to your time in the dentist chair we promise that every procedure will be taken at your pace. We believe communication is the key to the first step in overcoming your anxieties.

Our promise

We can guarantee that you will leave Shine Dental feeling valued. Phobia of dentists can put some patients off dental care so we have made it our mission to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
