We see many nervous patients in Sheffield, so if you’re worried about coming to the dentist, don’t be embarrassed. Around one in four people in the UK are scared of the dentist, perhaps due to negative experiences in the past or because they are embarrassed about their teeth. Sometimes there’s no real reason for patients to feel nervous; they are just worried it’s going to hurt.
We encourage nervous patients to come to us, as we understand just how difficult it can be to pluck up the courage for a visit to the dentist. We will treat you with respect and dignity and will take things at your pace to ensure you are comfortable with the treatment you are receiving. Here are our top tips for anxious patients to make your visit to the dentist more bearable:
Even though you might feel like putting the dentist off, it’s never a good idea to ignore your regular check-ups. This could mean you require more invasive procedures which will only put you off coming again!

We work hard to provide a service that our patients find relaxing, comfortable and pain free, so why not put us to the test and see for yourself just how much better things are now.
