How Video Consultations Have Benefitted Our Nervous Patients

In the last couple of months, we’ve seen many of the processes in our dental practice change since COVID-19. We’re dedicated to ensuring our patients are safe and have the best possible experience with us. So, we’ve had to adapt and make noticeable changes to keep health and safety a priority at Dental Solutions.

These changes have also included introducing virtual consultations for our patients. This helps us to continue providing treatment and essential advice so you can look after your oral health. Whilst this has been a necessity for us to introduce, as a dedicated nervous patient approved clinic, we always have you in mind.

Since the introduction of video consultations, we’ve found many of our nervous patients have found it an enjoyable experience. Being in the comfort of their own home and familiarising themselves with our team before their appointment, it’s proved to be a beneficial service that has smoothed their process when eventually visiting the practice.

Don’t just take our word for it! Here are some stories from our patients who have enjoyed their video consultation experience with us.

Nervous Patient Stories

Charlie’s story

‘I hadn’t been to a dentist for 10 years as I suffered very badly from dental phobia, but specifically a fear of needles. I spent a lot of time researching dentists for nervous patients and the Dental Solutions website kept coming up. They had lots of testimonials from their nervous patients so I felt they’d be able to help me and so I sent Gavin an email. Their video consultation service was perfect for me as my wife was shielding during lockdown so she could be with me to keep me calm. So when I had my video consultation with their dentist Lauren, it minimized my anxiety. She was in her home, I was in mine! I have since been to the practice for a consultation. Even though the team were in their full PPE, the fact that I had already met Lauren on video made it easy, and I also felt very safe with the steps the team had taken to keep me virus free. I am now going ahead with treatment which I never thought I would. I can highly recommend Lauren and all the team at Dental Solutions- I thought they would be judgmental but they weren’t at all – just kind, understanding, supportive and helped me through to treatment.’

Lizzie’s story

‘I hadn’t been to a dentist for many years as I was very nervous about going to one. But the time spent in lockdown forced me to take action. My own NHS dentist was closed so I googled around and found Dental Solutions. The fact that they did video consultations was even better as I could chat to Lauren, one of the dentists first from the comfort of my own home. Having met her first on video- she is lovely- gave me the courage to come into the practice within a week for a face to face consultation. I was very nervous at the start but quickly felt at ease. Lauren has recommended a course of treatment to fill some of my teeth, but my first step is a hygiene appointment which is now booked in the diary. I would recommend Dental Solutions to anyone.’
