Nervous & Anxious Patients In Norfolk

Fear of the dentist is nothing to be ashamed of. You may have had a bad experience in the past or may be worried or embarrassed because you haven’t been for a while, and know that you need some treatment. We are not here to judge you in any way, we are only here to help you, taking the stress and worry out of seeing the dentist.

Let us know beforehand if you are apprehensive about visiting. You can do this when calling, by writing or email. We will then make sure that the time allocated to your appointment is appropriate so that you will not feel rushed, allowing ample time for you to relay any fears or concerns.

It's important that you don't feel pushed further or faster than you can cope with and therefore you are in full control of the pace of the appointment. Just signal with a raised hand, for instance, and we'll stop at once and take a break.

 Many people who are anxious of the dentist simply don’t go and often end up with serious oral health problems, if you suffer from ‘dental phobia’, please let us know. We will do everything we can to make your appointment with us a positive one.

We can put you in safe hands with Dr Sara Adam. She will make everything possible to make your visit a pleasant experience. Dr Sara Adam has a wealth of experience and has helped so many patients through their journey.

First we’ll discuss the options available, including sedation.  With sedation, you will feel totally relaxed, calm and at ease, almost in a dream-like state. Intravenous sedation is a technique whereby an anti-anxiety drug is administered into a patient’s bloodstream. You will remain conscious during treatment and you will be able to understand and respond to verbal commands.  However, you may not remember much about your treatment because IV sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on.

Above all we endeavor to make our patients  feel as relaxed as possible and to leave our practice knowing they have been cared for with understanding and compassion.
