What nervous patients often fear the most is ‘not being in control’ of a situation or environment. This is why the dental environment seems to evoke such powerful and anxiety provoking responses in so many of the population. The dentists at Bank View Smile Studios are aware of this, which is why they will do their utmost to make you feel at ease and in control. Khalid and Thomas have very gentle chair side manners; they will talk through all the options and procedures well before they start any treatment. As all nervous patients are ‘on edge’, all the sights, sounds and sensations will be predicted and relayed to you before they happen and in some cases can even be eliminated. So as the saying goes ‘Knowledge conquers fear’, knowing what’s going to happen before it occurs prepares the mind and body much better, hence the ‘element of surprise’ is taken away.
In addition to the excellent behavioural scientific training that the dentists are proficient in, they are ably assisted by a highly trained and friendly team of support staff which we have at Bank View Smile Studios, who will endeavour to calm your nerves and make your dental experience with us, a most pleasurable experience.
That’s not all, the practice has invested in, and benefits from state of the art equipment which is aimed to relax you and take your mind off the dentistry. We boast a ‘personal cinematic experience’ which means you are able to view your favourite movie or documentary through our ultra-modern 3D enhanced high resolution Vuzix DVD visor which is like viewing a huge 62” screen from 9 feet with surround sound. Or if you prefer, you could put your mind at ease by listening to your favourite relaxing music through our ‘top of the range’ external noise reducing wireless Sennheiser headphones whilst we take care of the rest. Either way these technologies are designed to transport you to a different world, providing an excellent distraction and an optimal result.
As a way of independently accrediting our abilities, the practice is also registered with Dental Phobia.com which is a website solely listing dentists with a proven track record for helping nervous patients overcome their anxieties. Please follow the links below for more information.
Many of our patients successfully overcome their dental fears through these non-medicinal techniques, as the testimonials reflect. However, should some patients require additional techniques, oral, inhalation and intravenous sedation can also play a part, for more information please click on the links to gain further insight into these procedures.
