We understand that many people are nervous of visiting the dentist – in fact, fear is the main reason patients in the UK put off booking an appointment until an emergency arises. By that time, they can be in a lot of pain and in need of more complex treatment. It doesn’t have to be this way.
There are many reasons for dental phobia. Some patients have had a bad experience in the past while others are afraid of the sounds and smells of the dental surgery. Others still fear losing control, while fear of needles also affects many patients. Many people don’t know exactly where their dental phobia comes from, but it prevents them from seeking treatment until they have to.
Whatever the cause of your fear, at Apollonia Dental Care we are confident we can help you. We have 15 years of experience treating nervous patients, and believe in treating all of our patients with the same tender loving care we would give to members of our own family.
Modern dental techniques have improved greatly in recent years, with the result being that many treatments are practically pain free. We are proud to practise gentle dentistry and will not carry out any unnecessary treatment.
Our practice is modern and relaxing and our whole team will do everything possible to help put you at ease. You are welcome to bring a friend or family member along for support to any of your appointments. We will also talk you through any treatment that we find you need so that you can make informed choices and so that you remain in control at all times.
