Many people experience some kind of nervousness at the thought of dental treatment. For some, this anxiety can be extreme. It is common to hear people talk about their fear as ‘irrational’ or ‘silly’ and some will even say that they are actually ashamed of feeling this way.
At Highworth Dental Care we think there is nothing silly or shameful about anxiety around dental treatment. We understand that these aversive emotions are part of the body’s defence mechanism; a psychological reaction to a perceived ‘threat’. What we aim to achieve is to reduce anxiety through helping our patients to understand the treatment they will receive better. There is no threat. You can stop feeling nervous.
We believe that a friendly face and an approachable, caring attitude are the first steps towards putting our patients at ease. You can forget about any impersonal experiences you may have had at other practices in the past, Highworth does things differently.
We listen to our patients’ concerns and we will discuss treatment options to produce the most comfortable option for them. We want our patients to feel at ease whilst undergoing the treatment they need in order to get the outcome they want. You can talk to us. We’re here for you (and your teeth).
We take our patients’ comfort seriously. We will ensure that every treatment is as gentle and pain-free as it possibly can be. We will not rush you or try to push you into treatment that you are not ready for. Our approach is person-centred, it’s all about you.
We want you to have a positive experience whilst achieving the outcome you want. Our aim is to deliver an unforgettable standard of care to all our patients.
