Nervous Patients

Nervous patients - let us help you overcome your fear of the dentist at our Harley Street practice

We are very good at treating patients for whom dental treatment induces anxiety, stress, fear and worse! Nervous patients come in all guises. Some cannot even walk through the door into a dental office, others, shrug it off and pretend they’re okay whilst their heart rate goes up, their skin turns cold and their muscles tense. 

We treat many nervous patients, and getting the nervous individual through their dental treatment is immensely satisfying.

There are a number of ways to help the dental phobic individuals overcome their dental fears. Below are examples of how we can help.

  • No pain. All of our procedures including our injections are painless. 
  • Being sympathetic, caring, and very, very gentle. 
  • Knowledge is empowerment. Knowing what is going to happen to you can often dispel an unwarranted perceived fear. 
  • Drill free dentistry
  • Simple anti-anxiety medication can be administered prior to your treatment. 
  • Sedation in the presence of a Specialist Anaesthetist. Our resident anaesthetist Dr Andre DuPlessis will attend for your treatment.

The above is not an exhaustive list. It gives you a flavour of what is possible. Why not make an appointment to discuss your individual needs with Dr Jonathan Hall and see for yourself how fearless dentistry can be.
