All new patients are invited to book a free consultation with one of our Treatment Coordinators – Alison, Sam or Kaye. The consultation, which lasts between 30 and 40 minutes, includes a brief Q&A. This helps us to learn about you (and your teeth) and in turn affords you the opportunity to experience the level of care and attention Shine Dental is renowned for.

Dental Phobias

We recognise 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.

Shine Dental leads the way in Nervous Dental Patient care. We treat all of our patients with kindness and consideration. We do all that we can to take great care to ensure a stress-free visit to our dental practice.


During your first visit, your Treatment Coordinator will ask about:

  • Lifestyle and dental regime
  • Previous treatment
  • Any pain or discomfort

We will assess the condition of your teeth and advise on any treatment we feel will benefit you. It is also an ideal opportunity for you to explore treatments such as bridges, crowns, implants, dentures, cosmetic braces and teeth whitening.

Whatever your reason for coming to Shine Dental, whether you simply wish to change your dentist or you feel you have neglected your teeth in recent years, you will be well looked after.

It all begins with a FREE CONSULTATION, so book yours today!
