Did you know that fear of visiting the dentist is the main reason people don’t seek treatment? At Park Road we understand that patients can be nervous about visiting, and we’ll do everything we can to make you feel relaxed, calm and safe during every visit.
There are many reasons for fear of the dentist. Some people have had bad experiences in the past, some are put off by the sounds and smells associated with a dental surgery, and some cannot pinpoint the exact reason for their fear. Whatever the cause, if you are nervous about visiting the dentist, we will do everything possible to put your mind at rest.
Modern dental techniques are much advanced from what some people remember from their childhood, and many treatments are now practically pain free.
All of our dentists are experienced in treating nervous patients, and Dr Pia Langeland is a specialist in this area. Pia trained in Malmo in her native Sweden and after a move to the west coast of Sweden she developed an interest in the psychological aspects of dentistry. One of the things Pia most enjoys about dentistry is meeting and interacting with patients, and in 1997 she undertook post-graduate studies at Gothenburg Dental School to be able to treat patients with dental phobia.
If you find you need a little extra help to relax, we offer oral sedation that will help to make you feel more comfortable. We also encourage nervous patients to bring a friend or family member with you to your appointments for support.
