Calm & Gentle Dentistry for Nervous Patients
Do you get stressed out, worried or anxious about seeing the dentist?
If you answered ‘yes’, then Ripley Dental is ready to help with our Calm & Gentle Dentistry treatments.
Many people may not have 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 Ripley Dental Practice 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.
We just take our time, allow you to stop us at any time and give us feedback on how we are doing. If there is anything that we can change to make the procedure better then we try and do that for you too.
Here at Ripley Dental Practice we will always talk you through the treatment that you’re going to receive and what is involved. We won’t proceed with treatment until all of your questions have been answered and you’re comfortable.
Overcoming your dental fear
My name is Chig, I’m the owner of Ripley Dental. One of the most memorable moments in my career so far was when I had a patient who was going to get married the following year.
She was very nervous, she was very down because she had teeth that she felt she just couldn’t smile with and she was actually not looking forward to her wedding day.
She was so nervous she felt she couldn’t do anything about it, but by taking very small steps in the beginning and taking things at her pace we managed to get the treatment she wanted done.
She was completely relaxed in the end and the result was she had the smile she wanted for her wedding day.
She said that she just couldn’t believe it, and it was great to see the wedding photo that she sent to us.
