Are you A Nervous Patient ? Do You Fear the Dentist? We Can Help You!
On your first appointment you will be met and treated in a “calm and gentle” manner. You don’t even have to go into a dental surgery if you don’t want to. At Bank View Smile Studios we have a private reception area and meeting room where you can discuss your circumstances in a non-clinical setting.
You will never be judged by us or made to feel ashamed of any phobias you may have. Initially we can meet in one of our non-clinical rooms to enable you to get to know your dentist and the dental team. On subsequent appointments we will take one step at a time together, at your pace.
Before we go any further, here are a selection of reviews taken from Google and Facebook, from patients who discuss their calm, gentle, fear free treatment with us.
Imagine if there was a system available that delivered the anesthetic at the perfect speed, every time!
This is exactly what The Wand does. The flow of anesthetic is computer-controlled while The Wand is the hand piece that holds the needle. Operating together, they remove the possibility of the injection being delivered accidentally too fast.
We offer relaxation aids such as TVs and WiFi internet in our comfortable and welcoming reception area and in surgery you can choose to listen to your favourite music through headphones or enjoy a cinematic experience with our fantastic DVD visor.
What nervous patients often fear most is not being in control and this is why the dental environment seems to evoke such powerful and anxiety provoking responses. The dentists at Bank View Smile Studios are aware of this, which is why they will do their utmost to make you feel at ease and in control.
Khalid and Thomas have very gentle chair-side manners and they will talk through options and procedures well before they start any treatment. As the saying goes ‘knowledge conquers fear’, so knowing what’s going to happen before it occurs prepares the mind and body, removing the element of surprise.
In addition to the excellent behavioural scientific training that the dentists are proficient in, they are ably assisted by a highly trained and friendly team of support staff, who will endeavour to calm your nerves and make your dental experience with us a most pleasurable experience.
Many people may have not seen a dentist for years. They may have experienced pain or fear at a past appointment and haven’t wanted to go back. Does that sound familiar?
What happens next is you become embarrassed by your teeth and the health of your mouth and as a result you put off seeing the dentist again.
Unfortunately, this is a vicious circle as the fear of being judged by the dentist actually starts to become a real source of stress and anxiety.
That is where Bank View Smile Studios fit in. We never, ever judge anyone that comes to see us. It’s one of the promises that we make.
Our interest is in your well-being and nothing more. The last thing that you need is a disapproving look from us. We will work with you to overcome your initial fears and doubts and then move forward, restoring your smile, your confidence and your faith in dentists.
“Calm gentle and non-judgemental dentistry is what is promised and that is exactly what is delivered along with a professional but friendly, welcoming and caring service by all the team
If you are embarrassed about the state of your teeth or nervous about visiting a dentist, I would definitely recommend an appointment at Bank View Smile Studios. They are all brilliant and put you at your ease as soon as you walk through the door.
I first came to the surgery a few months ago after, for various reasons, not having visited a dentist for about 8 years. My teeth had deteriorated badly and as things got worse , the greater my anxiety about visiting a dentist had become. I was ashamed of the appalling state of my teeth and infected gums and the reaction of the dentist was one of my main fears.
It really helped that, having finally plucked up the courage to ring and explain that I was nervous and would like to speak with someone before I saw the dentist, I was given an appointment for that day to go to speak with Kathy one of the smile advisors. Having listened to my concerns, Kathy suggested that it would be helpful for me to meet the dentist straight away. That was exactly right for me as it meant that I was enabled to overcome one of my main anxieties at that first appointment.
As promised Dr Khalid didn’t criticise me at all and at no time during my treatment was I made to feel uncomfortable or judged for the state of my teeth. Quite the opposite, he showed understanding, patience and care at all times. That was so important to me.
He is a very skilful dentist. He carried out the necessary extractions quickly and painlessly despite the fact that many of my teeth were broken down to gum level. He very skilfully restored a tooth that I had thought beyond repair and closed a gap between my 2 lower front teeth which had been a source of embarrassment for some time.
I knew I was going to need dentures and was concerned about how they might look but Dr Khalid and his technician have crafted dentures which I look really natural. I am very impressed that he was able to do that with very little evidence of how my teeth had looked originally! Quite a challenge! It is an added bonus that the colour of my teeth has also been lightened.
Throughout my treatment I have felt comfortable with and very confident in Dr Khalid. He always explained what he was going to do and the outcome has been just as he promised.
Before coming to the practice, I had been embarrassed when speaking to people and would always try not show my teeth when I smiled. l now feel much more confident in speaking to people and it is lovely to be able to smile properly again and, also, not to have the worry of what will happen next time I visit the dentist.
Thank you so much to all the team – you’re all brilliant! I wouldn’t normally write such a long detailed review but I just hope it might help someone who is perhaps feeling the same way that I was to take that step to ring and make an appointment. I’m certainly very glad that I did and only wish that I had done it a long time ago.”
At least a 30-minute appointment with one of our ‘Calm & Gentle’ dentists who will carefully listen to your frustrations and goals before informing you on how, and in what ways, Calm & Gentle Dentistry can improve your dental health.
Following the judgement free initial conversation, your dentist will then give you a complete dental assessment to establish the condition of your teeth, gums, mouth and smile using various high definition digital radiographs (x rays) and high resolution digital photos available to view together within seconds. They will then explain each report in jargon free language to assist complete understanding. And finally, we can then present you with several options to help you to achieve your dream smile.
