At Southfields Dental Centre we know that many patients are nervous about visiting the dentist. In fact, fear of the dentist is the main reason patients in the UK give for putting off seeking dental treatment – above worries about costs or lack of time. Our whole team is caring and empathic with patients’ needs, and will do everything we can to help you overcome your fears.
There are many causes of fear of the dentist, from a bad past experience to fear of the sights and sounds of a dental surgery. Some patients are afraid of needles while others who haven’t seen a dentist in many years may worry that they will fell judged. That won’t happen at Southfields Dental Centre – our only wish is to help you get a healthy, happy smile back.
We see all of our patients as members of the Blue House Family, and you will be made to feel welcome and respected whatever your reason for coming to see us. We will treat you with as much care and respect as we would a member of our own family.
If you are nervous about treatment we invite you to come in for a visit to get to know the practice and the team. This will be a friendly introduction with no need even to sit in the dentist’s chair. Our helpful team of reception staff, dental nurses and dentists will immediately make you feel welcome, and will listen to your concerns and answer all of your questions.
We are a warm, friendly practice and will do everything we can to make you feel comfortable. You can listen to your favourite music or watch a DVD during treatment to help you relax, and we’ll let you know how to signal to us if you need a break while having treatment. Don’t worry about holding us up, we’ll factor in enough time in your appointment for you to have a breather if you need it – remember, your comfort is paramount to us.
Dental techniques and materials have advanced greatly in recent years, and we are proud to practise gentle dentistry. If you need extra help to relax we also offer premedication before or during treatment.
I had my chipped front tooth repaired here... and it worked. Good as new! Happy Days! Good experience and have become a member now!
A big thank you for many of years of excellent dental care, always professional and friendly, and a pleasure to come for treatment to the surgery.
