Patient Well-Being is our Priority
The team at smile2o is very sensitive to our patients’ needs. We understand that some patients have extra obstacles when visiting the dentist, whether it’s anxiety, a dental phobia, or another fear.
As a patient-first dental practice, we aim to ensure that your treatment is as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We believe in providing compassionate care for every patient, checking in with you throughout your dental treatment to ensure you feel taken care of, and offering information-rich consultations to remove the fear of the unknown.
How Dental Anxiety or Phobias May Affect Your Oral Health
Some of our patients have dental fear, anxiety, and stress. You may feel nervous about visiting the dentist, from fear of needles or other dental tools, generalised anxiety, invasion of personal space, loss of control, to a negative dental experience, and more.
To sidestep this fear, some patients avoid going to the dentist. However, this is never the answer. Indefinitely postponing dental care can result in disease progression, which results in more complex — and often more expensive — treatment.
Regular visits to our practice can help detect and prevent problems early so that you require simpler, less invasive dental treatments. At smile2o, we help many nervous patients gain confidence in visiting the practice and access the dental care they need to keep their teeth and gums healthy long-term.
Tell Us About Your Dental Anxiety or Treatment Concerns
We are attuned to the needs of our patients, but sometimes dental anxiety or concerns can be well-hidden. Please let us know if you have any fears or worries about your visit or dental treatment, so we can help put you at ease and give you confidence in our expertise.
We try to understand your fears before treating you, and we have a host of techniques to help you relax, allowing us to provide you with impeccable dental care. By sharing your concerns or fears with us, we can curate recommendations from our Comfort Menu to help alleviate what troubles you.
