Can anyone recommend a good dentist in se1 or se16 for myself who has a major fear of going to even get a check up. I used to go to the surgery on new Kent Rd next to elephant and Castle but had a bad experience there. Any help would be much appreciated
My dentist is in Welbeck Street near Bond Street tube, so not SE1 or SE16 but easy enough to get to. The practice is called Bhuva Dental Care and Nairesh Bhuva is the one to see - he's a gem. Gentle, calm, professional. Private unfortunately, but in this instance you definitely get what you pay for. Good luck!
Register with a dentist and ask them to refer you to Guys dental hospital. They have specialists there who deal with dental phobias under their special care team. Also, if you are accepted for treatment you don't have to pay. King's also have an excellent dental hospital.
I once told a dentist at London Bridge Dental practice that I've had success helping people with phobias and he said he did hypnotherapy and other things with patients. This was a while back though. I mean 15 years back, so not sure if he's even still there, but might be worth giving them a call.
No connection but 25 Tower Bridge Road dental surgery is taking on NHS patients and the dentist there is very kind and will put you at ease. The dentist will not judge you and is there to help you. If you are very nervous patient you will be referred to Guys dental hospital for treatment with IV sedation which is very good for patients with severe dental phobia.
I am a nervous patient also and I signed up at 25 Tower Bridge Road dentist ( No personal connection) after 5 years of not going out of fear. They were great ! Once I explained my fear They refered me to Guys for sedation to have two teeth extracted. I explained to the chap doing it I would rather be knocked out completely but he assured me I would be fine. I had the surgery done last week. Its a simple needle in your arm and all sense of fear completely goes. I was aware of what he was doing with his assistant ( You are in a private room with one other dental assistant not a battery hen of dentist chairs) which made the experience more bearavle. I can honestly say it was absolutely nothing to fear. Totally professional and the sedation made it no more fearful than sitting in the barbers chair .. Bite the bullet and go for it .. you will feel fantastic after you have had the work done and empowered that its not half as terrifying as you think the experience is !
