Dental Treatment and COVID-19

Following the announcement by the government on 28th May, we are incredibly pleased and excited to announce that we will be re-opening our practice soon!

At Dentalcare Group patient safety and comfort is of paramount importance, and we have spent the time during closure upgrading the clinic and introducing the following measures to keep our patients and staff SAFER than ever.

The clinic as you are aware has always been a very clean and safe environment. However, we have placed hand sanitisers at entry points, upgraded our PPE and redesigned the patient journey in line with social distancing.

We will be conducting pre-screening tests of patients which is likely to include taking your temperature on arrival.

We have had to cancel numerous appointments since the lockdown began 3 months ago and will initially be prioritising appointments for our existing patients who have had dental emergencies or appointments cancelled, in order of urgency. Please do not attend the clinic unless you have an appointment.

We thank you all for your patience during this difficult time and look forward to seeing you again soon!

We will be in touch as soon as we are ready to see you!

Nervous Patients

at Dentalcare Bradford On Avon

Dentalcare Bradford On Avon welcomes and supports nervous patients

Are you anxious or scared about visiting the dentist? Do you avoid going to the dentist? Are you putting off some dental treatment because you are nervous? Many patients are scared to visit the dentist but for some it is truly terrifying. Reasons for dental anxiety or dental phobia can range from suffering a bad experience at the dentist in the past to fear of the unknown.

Some patients find that they are so anxious that they have panic attacks about going to the dentist. Others avoid visiting the dentist but then suffer consequences to their dental health as problems develop without treatment. This form of dental anxiety can have potential financial implications as dental treatment becomes more complex and expensive the longer that dental appointments are missed.

At Dentalcare Bradford On Avon we understand all of these problems and we want you to know that we are here to help. Our staff are very experienced in treating nervous and phobic patients, and we will do all that we can to put you at your ease.

Helping to overcome dental phobias in Bradford On Avon

We believe it is the right that everyone has access to dental treatment and dental care, so we work hard to help those patients who find visiting the dentist difficult.

By helping to increase your knowledge can help you feel better about what is happening and empower you to feel more in control. We invite you into our dental practice to show you around and talk to you about the different processes and treatments. We will never rush you or pressure you into having any treatment.

These things can also help nervous dental patients:

  • Increasing your session times little by little
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Booking a morning appointment so that you don’t have to wait all day
  • Start with a basic cleaning treatment before progressing on to anything else
  • Music or audio books to listen to when you get to have treatment

 

We offer local anaesthetic to also help if you are a patient wanting to have a more challenging procedure or to deal with the management of pain. A small needle is inserted into the gum which quickly numbs the area so that you cannot feel anything

Call the dental surgery or come in and see us to talk more about how we can help you overcome your dental fears.
