“I Have Experienced No Pain During Treatment”
I struggled to find a practice with which I was satisfied for several years but Tavistock Dental (Now Dental Smiles London) has proved very satisfactory. The dentist and hygienists I have seen have been friendly and competent and I have experienced no pain during treatment. I would recommend the practice wholeheartedly. S.K

Introducing Dentistry For Nervous Patients From Tavistock Dental And Dental Smiles London With Dr Frances.

A trip to the dentist can cause anxiety for many people. If you feel nervous about any aspect of your visit to see us, be assured that the team here are trained to help make your visit as stress free as possible. Nervous patients are often labelled as having dental phobia. This is a valid condition and can be treated with a slightly modified approach to the provision of dental care.

Many of these people are so fearful about coming in that the health of their mouth suffers as a result. People who avoid the dentist are more likely to have problems with their gums and be more prone to infection and gum disease.

It is important to see a dentist regularly so that if issues with your mouth do arise they can be treated swiftly and can prevent the damage done to your smile becoming irreversible.

The good news is that with advances in dentistry there is now no need for you to be in pain whilst at the dentist!

My experience with Tavistock Dental was really superb! The staff in the reception front desk, Joana, was friendly and made my waiting time worthwhile. The hygienist was friendly and accomodating. He made sure I was comfortable during the entire procedure and did a really good job cleaning my teeth and teaching me about oral hygiene. I will definitely come back. Highly recommend!read more

Really good and gentle dentists. I had A LOT of injections for my root canal and subsequent crown and it didn’t hurt. They explained everything and we’re so patient. Shout out to the receptionist (not putting her name online!) she’s really friendly.

I visited in mid-2023, almost 10 years after my last visit. I’d had issues with mental health & addiction that meant that I avoided treatment for that time.When I got back in touch with the clinic, I spoke with Joanna, the receptionist who was really lovely, got everything arranged and made coming back easy.When I arrived for my appointment, Joanna greeted me and made me feel very welcome and comfortable. She has excellent interpersonal skills and a very caring manner, which really set the tone for the experience from the moment I walked in. I’ve rarely experienced such a warm welcome in a healthcare setting.I have been living with HIV for 10 years. I work for a HIV charity and hear about poor and stigmatising experiences from our service users living with HIV all over the UK about accessing healthcare, especially dentistry. That made me nervous about the kind of experience I might have. I needn’t have worried. The team collected all the necessary information from me and treated me exactly the same as any other patient, which is what you should be able to expect.I saw Jack, the dentist. He was professional, courteous and has a very gentle and caring manner, which I really appreciated. He was great at explaining what was going on, what his recommendations were and why and what my options were. I had two fillings and an extraction and it was a painless and calm experience throughout.I would highly recommend Tavistock Dental to anyone seeking high-quality dental care that seeks to take as much care of the patient’s mental health as their oral more

To say I am nervous about going to the dentists is an understatement. I am terrified... but needs must.At Tavistock Dental, from Jo, the receptionist; to Arj and Frances, the dentists; and Kristina, the nurse; they took my fear seriously and adapted the consultation to my needs. The concern for my welfare felt genuine. Everything was discussed thoroughly and honestly, alternatives and options suggested. I have no memories of the day itself, which is exactly what I wanted.I could not recommend enough. Excellent care that goes the extra step.Great team of peopleread more
Great teeth cleaning service here! They teach you how to brush correctly as well and give you good teeth hygiene tips. Very excellent service to book an appointment as well. I was able to get one for next day. My hygienist was Sayed and nurse Shaiiya. Both put me at ease for anyone who gets nervous at the more

We Never Judge You Or Your Teeth

What We Do For Nervous Patients

We understand how coming to the dentist and having treatment can be the scariest thing in the world for some people. But the good news is, we’re the most sympathetic clinic at understanding your fears and your anxieties.

You might have an image in your head of what dentistry is all about, but that is entirely different to what we do here.

We spent a long time making sure that when a patient comes here they have the calmest, most gentle, and most importantly, pain free experience possible.

The Process For Nervous Patients

The most important thing for you to know is we would never judge you. I have seen it all. No matter what state you think your mouth is in, I will have seen something far worse, trust me.

The first step would be to call and arrange a meeting with me. We can chat in a non-clinical environment, away from the dental chair.

We can talk about what you’re scared of, what you’re worried about, and what your concerns are, and I’ll talk to you about what I can do.

I use sedation, which is like feeling sleepy, cosy, and comfortable. With that technique we do your treatment and you’re unaware of it.

We Offer The Latest Technology

We have invested in the best modern technology, meaning, that when possible, we do as much work as we can during your sedation appointment.

As a result, we usually get you finished all in one day. Our patients are happy with only coming for one visit

The great thing about sedation dentistry is you’re competently unaware you are having treatment. You’re asleep.

We have such a friendly bunch of receptionists. Please give them a call, and they can direct you and talk you through any questions you might have.
