Nervous patients

We are aware that many people are frightened of the dentist and avoid dental treatment altogether. Here at Chalfont St Peter Dental Practice we always aim to treat nervous patients in a calm and sympathetic way, to ensure they can overcome their fear of the dentist to achieve a healthy smile.

How we can help

  • Your first visit will be an examination, so this will give you a chance to get to know your dentist
  • We are happy for you to bring a friend to your appointment if this will make you more comfortable
  • You can bring a personal stereo to listen to music if you think this will help you to relax
  • We will agree a sign with you, so that if you need a break or want to stop at any point we will do so. This can be as simple as raising your hand, but will help you feel more in control
  • We will be understanding and promise to listen to you carefully
  • For very nervous patients or those with a severe phobia, we can arrange for treatment to be carried out under sedation if appropriate
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or queries
