Nervous Patients

Many people actively avoid the dentist, not out of laziness but out of fear. At Lion Dental Centre, we completely understand and want to make your experience as amazing as possible. We want all of our nervous patients to feel at ease and comfortable when visiting our dental practice in Stourbridge. A nervous dental patient may want to meet the team beforehand.

Prolonged aversion from the dentist can lead to a number of health problems such as gum disease and possibly tooth loss. A simple check-up can save you so much hassle in the future. We appreciate that some patients suffer with dental phobia and attending or even making a dental appointment is a big step. Here at Lion Dental Centre in Stourbridge, comfort and convenience is our priority when treating fearful dental patients.

If you’re nervous about visiting our Stourbridge dental practice due to concerns over accessibility, we’d like to assure all nervous patients that your satisfaction is at the heart of what we do. Our purpose built, ground floor practice has been thoughtfully designed with our patients’ comfort and accessibility in mind. Our site has wheelchair access, free on-site parking and an onsite Pharmacy. If you’re a nervous patient looking for a dental practice that will hold your hand throughout your dental journey, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We promised to

  • Encourage our patients to talk openly regarding how they’re feeling. If your dentist is aware that you are a nervous patient, they can do everything they can to help put you at ease.
  • Answer any questions you may have regarding your treatment and encourage you to ask as many as you wish. It’s important that you fully understand and are comfortable with your proposed treatment plan. We want you to feel happy and confident in our care.
  • Allow nervous patients to bring a family member or friend with them if it will put them at ease. We support all patients to do whatever we can to help them.
  • Establish a ‘stop’ signal, so you are in complete control of your treatment and can stop it at any point.

What happens during my first appointment?

If this is your first time seeing us, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums. If you have visited the dentist for a specific problem, this will be discussed and examined. Following this, appropriate treatment will be discussed with you. Your dentist in Stourbridge will explain what is going on throughout the appointment and we encourage you to ask any questions you may have.

Should I tell the dentist how I’m feeling?

We recommend having an open and honest conversation with either your dentist or another member of our team. If we know that you have concerns about your appointment, we can then talk to you about making it as easy and comfortable as possible.

Can I bring a friend with me?

At Lion Dental, if you feel that bringing a loved one in with you for your appointment then that is absolutely fine. We want to make sure our nervous patients are at ease.

Is sedation an option?

If you are a nervous patient, then you may prefer to be sedated during treatment. This is available at our multi-award-winning sister clinic, only a short distance away.
