Home/Latest News/How To Overcome Your Fear Of The Dentist

Having a dental phobia is very common these days, so please don’t worry, you’re not alone.

It is quite often traced back to a traumatic experience when you went to the dentist as a child. For others it can simply be the feeling of their personal space being invaded as the dentist works in close proximity to their face. Or even the thought of the tools that we use to complete our treatments. 

Whatever it is you don’t like about going to the dentist, don’t worry, we will be able to help overcome this fear and you will even start to enjoy your visit to the dentist!

When Vernon set out to create Bellissima Clinic all those years ago, he had a vision of a nice relaxing & holistic approach to dentistry. The clinic is set in the picturesque village of Tanworth in Arden and the clinic itself, doesn’t look like your typical dental practice. Before you walk through the door you will feel at ease that this is unlike any other dentist you have been to.

One thing that we really pride ourselves on, is our patient centric approach. Our friendly team will be on hand to greet you as you walk through the door and they will continue to make you feel at ease and relaxed. We have seen many nervous patients over the years and we will always take our time to help you overcome your phobias (at a pace that suits you).  

Lots of our patients have been a patient of Vernon’s for many years and have followed him from other practices (he worked in) to continue under his care.

How Can We Help You?

Firstly, we will treat our patients as if they were a member of our family. 

Secondly, we will listen to what you are saying. We understand that the barrier between the dental professional and general public can be quite far apart, and we always endeavour to break this down. What this means is, we won’t use technical jargon. We will use conversational plain English so you fully understand what is going on with your dental health, but most importantly, we will listen and understand your needs. It can be quite frustrating as a patient if you don’t feel you’re being listened to. We always aim to go above & beyond at every appointment to exceed your expectations, and every time we see you, you will feel more confident about coming back.

If you fancy a chat in the first instance, that is not a problem. We will be happy to discuss your needs first and if you’re interested in a particular facial aesthetic or dental treatment, we will be more than happy to get you in for a free consultation. This is also a great time to come and have a look around our practice before going down the route of having a treatment. 

Whatever the reason that may of been holding you back in the past, we promise, we will overcome this together and help rebuild your confidence about going to the dentist.

You will leave with a smile! 

No long nervous dental patient
