Nervous Patients

Nervous Patients

At Ikon Dental Suite we take time to listen to any anxieties, fears, or concerns you may have about treatments or the practice. Being nervous about dentistry is common, especially if you have had a bad experience in your past which has affected you. Our philosophy is to make sure you are as comfortable as possible and that you get the best treatment for your oral health.

Many patients tells us that feeling informed every step of the way helps to combat some of the nervousness they may have had. That is why our dentists and dental team will ensure you are kept up to date at every stage of the treatment, letting you know what is going on, and how you will benefit from the steps we are taking. If you have any questions along the way, please feel free to ask your dentist who will be happy to help.

Other ways which nervous patients may find their visit more pleasurable include:

  • Bringing a supportive friend or family member
  • Visiting the practice beforehand to get familiar with the surroundings
  • Reading our patient testimonials to see what other patients say
  • Looking at our practice gallery to see the practice
  • Bringing something to read in the waiting room such as a favourite book or magazine
