Treatment of Nervous Patients
We understand that visiting the dentist can be a stressful experience and some people need extra support. Here at Andrew House, we are both trained and experienced in offering a very supportive, step by step approach to your treatment and have many resources available to help you with your visit.
From the moment you walk in through the front door, our friendly, personal care will to put you at ease and all of our staff will do our best to make the experience as stress free as possible.
What can you do to help me?
- Give you a longer appointment where you can chat though your concerns and anxieties. We will listen to you and discuss how we can best help.
- Encourage you to bring someone with you in to the surgery if that helps, sometimes having music ready with earphones can be calming.
- Offer hypnotherapy, CBT and other behaviour management techniques through our work with “Blossom Hypnotherapy”
Arrange for you to have treatment with Sedation which can all be arranged in house, with the same dentists that will be looking after you.
