Dental Phobia is not a problem with us

  • Dr Neera Maini is a dental phobia certified dentist
  • We work to make you feel as comfortable as possible
  • We have a variety of therapies to help you to relax during treatment.

If you’re nervous about seeing a dentist, you're not alone. Dental phobia affects millions of patients and can range from minor anxiety that leaves you feeling uncomfortable in the treatment chair, right through to a full-blown phobia that prevents you from visiting us.

Whichever of these best describes you - we can help.

Dr Neera Maini understands the negative impact that dental phobias can have on your oral health – especially if it means you haven’t had a dental checkup in years.

Dr Maini has created a relaxing environment at Aqua Dental Clinic, using a range of relaxation techniques to put even the most anxious of patients at ease. Our nervous patient programme is one of the reasons patients travel from across the UK and sometimes from overseas to see us.

I have had the most amazing experience with these very professional dentist team. They were friendly,kind & & took so much time to make me feel at ease. I have been petried of dentist since i was a child when the dentists needle slipped through my mouth! I had not been for 15 years & my teeth were really getting me down i cannot smile & havent done for a while! I have had 2 visits & 1 was with the hygienist who was amazingly gentle & talked through every step to keep me calm. Im seeing the dentist on Monday for major work & im really excited! This is an absolute mircle! I would challange anyone who like me had a massive fear because you will be a different person when you leave there but also with amazing teeth!!! Thank you the team at Aqua dental clinic i will be recommending you to ALL clientele!!! Friends & Family! X

Can highly recommend this place, particularly for nervous patients or patients with dental phobia. The lovely receptionist Annie makes sure you'll feel comfortable from the moment you come through the door. During the treatment you can choose between a range of items to put you at ease (blanket, cushion, playing your favourite music, watching a movie etc.) and you even have the option for sedation. Dr. Maini is very understanding of possible concerns and will explain everything in detail. Overall just a great, spa-like atmosphere which doesn't feel anything like most dental surgeries.

Excellent Practice with excellent people! Being very nervous of the Dentist has always been a problem for me, but not any more! From the moment I walked into the clinic and was welcomed by Baljit the Receptionist, to the actual treatment with Dr Maini, I was made to feel relaxed and at ease. The treatment I had was excellent, can highly recommend.

This place is has given me my confidence to smile with teeth which I would have never been able to do. The staff are amazing and really helpful. They are very polite and friendly. It is defiantly worth the money for the level of care you are given. Would highly recommend 10/10
