Most people feel a little anxious visiting the dentist. That’s natural. However for some their fear prevents them from visiting and therefore means they are putting their teeth, and potentially their general health, at risk.
At Redhouse we understand your fears and we are especially proud of our reputation as a caring practice. From the moment patients walk through the door they are made to feel welcome and as relaxed as possible.
We offer TLC – Tender Loving Care that takes a sympathetic, understanding approach underpinned with professional solutions.
All our team work in this way and Principle Dentist Dr Sarbjit Phakkey is especially experienced in caring for nervous patients. She uses a combination of NLP (a form of therapy that encourages people to change the way they think about a problem or issue) and, sometimes hypnosis to relax nervous patients.
We also offer oral sedation. A sedative can be taken orally prior to the patients visit and can help alleviate anxiety. A chaperone is necessary to take care of the patient as they effects last for most of the day and operating machinery is not advised.
For very anxious patients Redhouse can also offer IV sedation.
