Mike’s Story – Nervous Patient

Mikes Story - Nervous Patient“Due to my previous hatred and nervousness around going to the dentist, I had been putting off going to one for years, and to be honest if it wasn’t for my wife persuading me to go – she was already a patient of Gavin Laidlaw at Dental Solutions- I would have probably struggled on for even longer.

So when I went to see Gavin the first time I was amazed by his kindness and gentle manner. His practice is lovely – a far cry from the dentist I was used to.

I have had quite a bit of treatment with Gavin to get my teeth back to good health – an extraction of one of my back teeth, 2 root canal treatments, a crown and some veneers. I now visit the hygienist twice a year and they have helped me get my teeth back in good health once again.

I work a lot in the Warrington area so coming to a private practice like Dental Solutions is great for a busy man like me because I can get the convenient appointment times and dates that suit me. The other thing that helps is that you are not sat around waiting to see the dentist getting nervous – I have never waited more than 5 minutes to see Gavin – and that was only because he was treating an emergency. This type of treatment is such a relief for nervous patient’s like myself.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not completely cured of my dread about going to the dentist, but it’s much better now. I go regularly for my 6 month check-ups and once I am there it’s never as bad as I think. And once I leave I just feel relieved and wondering why I was worried in the first place!”
