How we can help you
Dr Anoop Maini is a dental phobia certified dentist with many years of experience in treating nervous patients. Dr Maini has a very calming presence and he understands that many patients are anxious about even going to the dentist, let alone having treatment. Dr Maini uses the latest treatments and techniques to minimise pain and help patients to feel as comfortable as possible. Our practice is designed to be a calming, relaxing space, and our team is friendly and compassionate. We invite you to have a look around and make yourself comfortable when you visit us. If you’d like to listen to music, read or watch TV, we can arrange this for you. If you are anxious about having treatment, we may recommend sedation.
Sedation is a popular technique used for medical and dental procedures. It is not the same as general anaesthetic, but it does make you feel completely relaxed and it also prevents pain. If you’re very nervous about undergoing treatment, sedation can help you to feel calmer before and during treatment. When you’ve been sedated, you will feel drowsy, but you won’t lose consciousness.
If you’re scared of going to the dentist or you haven’t been to the dentist for several years due to anxiety or dental fear, we are confident that we can help you. Give us a call to find out more about our services or pop in and see us. Our reception team will be happy to show you the clinic, talk about services and introduce you to our experienced, caring dentists.
