At Smiles of Diamond Creek we’ve got everything you need to help you relax and get the treatment you need.
If you’re nervous about the Dentist, you’ve come to the right place.
When you’re anxious about getting treatment there’s nothing worse than feeling rushed or confused about what’s going on.
That’s why we book longer appointments times, so we can make you a cup of tea, explain everything in detail and talk you through the options to help you get treatment.
You see, we know how important good oral health is, and we think you know too. But if you’re nervous about coming to the Dentist that’s where things start to go wrong. Small issues can quickly escalate and soon you’re in discomfort or pain.
Let us help.
Things to help you relax
It sounds simple, but a few little tricks can really help you relax and unwind and take your mind off being at the Dentist.
Once you’re comfortable you’ll probably find that the treatment is over before you know it!
Here are a few things we offer during your visit:
- A longer appointment so you can relax and ask any questions
- A friendly face when you arrive
- The offer of a warm drink while you wait
- Any Netflix show you fancy while you have your treatment
- Noise cancelling headphones so you can drift away
- A neck pillow
Before you come in we’ll talk to you about the best way to keep you calm. If there’s anything you’d like to bring in from home just let us know ; we’ll work with anything you need to help you get treatment.
We’re here to help
If you haven’t been to a Dentist for a while, don’t worry. We never judge or comment on what’s happened before you come to see us, all we care about is where you’re at now.
We know the hardest part is coming in the door, after that you can relax and let us take control
If the idea of coming to the Dentist is still too much then we have a few more options to try.
We offer sleep dentistry and oral sedation (where you’re completely numb but still conscious). With sleep dentistry you’ll be fast sleep throughout your treatment and won’t feel a thing.
Head to our sleep dentistry page if you’d like to know more. The great thing is, we carry out sleep dentistry right here in the practice so you won’t have to go to hospital.
We don’t want paying for your treatment to add to your stress, that’s why we’ll never recommend any treatment that we don’t think it is absolutely necessary.
We’ll always be upfront and honest about your treatment and want you to ask as many questions as you need to understand what we’re offering.
We know that dental treatment can add up, that’s why we offer a range of flexible payment plans to help break up your payments. You can read more about our plans on our payment plans page.
