Are You Ashamed to Go to the Dentist?

Being ashamed to go to the dentist is a common occurrence we see as a dental practice. Unfortunately, many patients avoid visiting the dentist because they hate the thought of it. At Dental Solutions, we’re incredibly passionate about making nervous patients feel welcome – so much so that we’ve even been nominated for a national award for our work surrounding this. Taking care of your health should be your first priority. We believe a fear of visiting the dentist shouldn’t be something that holds you back.

Investing In Your Health

Investing in your health is vitally important and is certainly not something that should be ignored. Many people are guilty of neglecting their own health because they’re too busy looking after others, where others simply don’t like the thought of going to the dentist. Often if you’ve had a bad experience at the dentist before, this can deter you from going again.

Why Are People Ashamed to Go to The Dentist?

  • They’ve received hurtful remarks about their teeth in the past
  • Years of neglect has resulted in poor oral health
  • They feel guilty about not looking after their teeth properly

If you’re ashamed to go to the dentist, you’re not alone. The hardest part is taking the first step – finding the perfect dental practice for you. Once you’ve found someone you think may be suitable, why not visit the surgery and see how you feel about the place? Speak with the dentist and let them know your concerns, explaining that you’re anxious so they know beforehand. This is a good opportunity to get to know the dentist, and you can also discuss the possibility of using a numbing gel if you’re afraid of any pain. When you finally do go for your appointment – why not bring a friend? Having their support may alleviate some of your worries.

The Treatment We Offer

As an established practice, Dental Solutions have seen the variety of patients who were previously ashamed to go to the dentist. However, our priority is your health, and we genuinely care about making sure you’re comfortable and happy whenever you visit.

We have provide no obligation consultations available usually within 24 hours for those who are inquiring.

Initially I was quite apprehensive about having 2 implants, but upon my consultation with Gavin ., i felt encouraged by his knowledge and advice . The whole experience in a very relaxed atmosphere could not have been any better. I am well impressed by their professionalism and expertise in this Practice and would most certainly give them a Top Class recommendation .

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.
