Dentist in Glasgow,
Worried about your next dentist visit? How Buttercup 7 Day Dental can ease your anxiety
By Hannah Kemp 03rd Aug 2020
If the thought of attending a dental check-up fills you with dread, it can be all too easy to overlook the appointment altogether.
While dental fear or anxiety is extremely common across the UK, many dental surgeries assume that the phobia begins once the patient enters the treatment room. However, often, it begins when the patient smells, hears or experiences the unfamiliar surroundings of a traditional dental waiting room. It’s hard to focus on remaining calm when you are surrounded by posters of teeth and dental pricing lists!
So, apart from attending your dental check-up wearing a blindfold and earplugs (an odd look to say the least) what can you do? Or, more specifically, what can your dental team do to ease your nerves and make you feel relaxed?
At Buttercup 7 Day Dental, we know how nerve-racking a trip to the dentist in Glasgow can be, especially if you are a nervous or phobic patient. Therefore, we have dedicated a great amount of time and effort into making the entire surgery environment more friendly, without compromising on the dental care we can offer you, going that extra mile.
How have we made our dentist in Glasgow more appealing to our more nervous dental patients? Read on to find out!
The first thing you will notice about our dentist in Glasgow is the waiting room.
While most surgeries offer patients a comfortable yet clinical look to their waiting areas, at Buttercup 7 Day Dental, we have worked hard with designers to make our waiting room look like a coffee shop. Just to ease your nerves even further, we also offer our patients tea and coffee while they wait, as well as free WiFi for that true coffee shop experience.
Many phobic dental patients worry about the discomfort that a dental check-up can come with.
Our team uses the most modern dental techniques and equipment to ensure that whether you need a filling or an extraction, your experience with us will be as comfortable as possible, allowing you to relax.
Meeting a new dental team is an odd experience in many dental practices; you come in, introduce yourself and then a complete stranger is looking into your mouth – it is no wonder dental phobias are so common!
When you come to Buttercup 7 Day Dental, you can arrange to meet our team before your clinical appointment, to ask questions, build a rapport with us and ease your nerves.
Our team prides itself on being as friendly as possible to all of our patients, particularly our nervous ones.
We will take our time to answer any questions you have, and will allow you to set the pace of the treatment you require.
We customise your care to fit your needs; if you are nervous, we can allow for a longer session to complete check-ups or treatments. If you are confident, we will endeavour to offer you the same high standard of treatment that we give to our more nervous patients.
