A gentle dentist will put you at ease from the first point of contact
For some people, dental anxiety can result in going to great lengths to avoid visiting the dentist altogether. However, an experienced dental practice will know how to make people feel at ease from the minute they book an appointment or walk through the front door. Staff are trained to be empathetic and calming and they will talk you through each step of the process before your appointment even starts. In fact, Robert Duhig understands that in certain cases, patients may feel more comfortable taking their own pain killers or anti-anxiety medication before coming in for their appointment. However, it is very important that you call the office to get the right advice before taking anything prior to your dental visit.
Communication is the key to making patients feel calm and confident

Don’t be afraid to express your concerns to your dentist.
