Whether you had a previous bad experience with dentistry or just have unknown fear about dental treatment, you are not alone, fear of dental treatment tops the list of fears for most people.

Many people get anxiety that’s completely understandable, like before boarding a flight, jumping at the deep end of a swimming pool or travelling alone to a new city. Dental anxiety is somewhat similar, it’s widely acknowledged and completely acceptable to be anxious of dental procedures.

Going to the dentist brings out a strong emotional response for many people. Avoiding or just going to dentist solely for dental emergency is the worst mistake anyone can make. The way to feel comfortable in a dental clinic is by attending regularly for dental examination and gentle dental treatments, like polishing of teeth or teeth whitening. When confidence in your dentist has been achieved, more complex treatment can be undertaken with ease. Most dentists have a special technique to deal with anxious patients. At Dental & Skin we successfully treat anxious patients on daily basis. We do this with ease, as our clinic is naturally calm, our process refined and our staff show genuine empathy towards all patients.
