Treating Nervous Patients
at Bank View Smile Studios
Are you A Nervous Patient ? Do You Fear the Dentist? We Can Help You!
On your first appointment you will be met and treated in a “calm and gentle” manner. You don’t even have to go into a dental surgery if you don’t want to. At Bank View Smile Studios we have a private reception area and meeting room where you can discuss your circumstances in a non-clinical setting.
You will never be judged by us or made to feel ashamed of any phobias you may have. Initially we can meet in one of our non-clinical rooms to enable you to get to know your dentist and the dental team. On subsequent appointments we will take one step at a time together, at your pace.
The Wand – painless injections
Imagine if there was a system available that delivered the anesthetic at the perfect speed, every time!
This is exactly what The Wand does. The flow of anesthetic is computer-controlled while The Wand is the hand piece that holds the needle. Operating together, they remove the possibility of the injection being delivered accidentally too fast.
Benefits of using The Wand
- It looks non-threatening, just like a pen
- It gives a supply of anesthetic in a slow comfortable manner
- The Wand works at a low pressure and a slow rate
- You may not even notice that you’ve had the injection!
- No or little numbness of the tongue, cheek or lip
- You can return to drinking and smiling almost immediately

“Thomas Talks Over Coming Your Fear Of The Dentist”
A gentle chair-side manner
What nervous patients often fear most is not being in control and this is why the dental environment seems to evoke such powerful and anxiety provoking responses. 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 and they will talk through options and procedures well before they start any treatment. As the saying goes ‘knowledge conquers fear’, so knowing what’s going to happen before it occurs prepares the mind and body, removing the element of surprise.
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, who will endeavour to calm your nerves and make your dental experience with us a most pleasurable experience.

Sara’s shocked mum thought she’d ‘never see the day’ when Sara would happily enter the surgery, jump on the chair willingly, allow a thorough check up co-operatively and skip out of the practice with a sticker and a smile!
