Nervous Patients

Lady who is nervous of the dentist Do you feel Nervous about seeing the Dentist?

Many patients get a little nervous before a trip to the dentist but for some people that slight apprehension can become a crippling fear.

This phobia can grow so severe that some people will avoid the dentist altogether, leading to devastating long-term issues with their teeth and gums.

At Ravenscourt Dental Practice we work hard at understanding what makes a person anxious and by helping them to overcome this, we aim to make all our patients feel comfortable, relaxed and secure.
