At House of Dental in Hove, we understand that there will be some patients who are anxious about visiting the dentist. This is quite normal and we will do everything we can to make you feel comfortable and reassured at all times.
We prefer not to use sedation for our nervous patients and the practice has gained an excellent reputation for how we take care of those who are apprehensive or even a little scared.
Patients come to House of Dental because we take time to help them relax. We listen to their concerns and work with them to provide reassurance. We spend time talking with them – about anything from the weather to where they are going on holiday. And they come to trust us.Get in touch
We let patients choose their own music for their visit and even put their favourite movie on the overhead TV screens. We let them know that we understand and allow them the time they need to feel comfortable.
If you are nervous about visiting the dentist, let us know when you make an appointment and we will take care of you from the moment you step through the doors at House of Dental.
“Jose has been my dentist for the last 3 and a half years and I can honestly say I’d never go to anyone else again! I’ve always been very needle phobic throughout my life after many bad experiences, and having to have a filling for the first time was a frightening prospect for me. Jose couldn’t have been more patient and understanding and the positive experiences that I have had in his care have helped me gradually overcome my phobia. I genuinely enjoy going to the dentist now (how many people can say this?!) and always look forward to a chat and a catch-up! The whole team at Brunswick Court Dental Practice are so welcoming and kind and I couldn’t recommend this practice more.”
