Continuing from yesterday, The Perfect Smile Advanced Training Institute has carried out some research into why people hate the dentist. As a result we have been able to re-evaluate our patient experiences and make sure that we have eliminated all these reasons. Hence, we have made it possible not to HATE the dentist.

The key reasons we discovered why people hate the dentist are:

1. The anxiety. This is a common feeling associated with dentists in particular. There is a sense of dread and nervousness about going to the dentist it tends to put us on edge. Even if there is no associated pain we still fear the worse.

GOOD NEWS: We understand that many people feel this way. For this reason we have created a few processes in our practice to help eliminate this anxiety:

a) We have highly experienced Patient Care Coordinators who spend time with you to first properly understand your anxieties and then to alleviate them.

b) We have a patient counselor that helps using cognitive methods and is someone you can talk to prior to any treatment.

c) We have a specialist Anaesthetists who carries out any sedation that you may need in order to have dentistry done. It is a great option that helps to alleviate anxiety.

d) Our specialists and dental clinicians are experienced in dealing with anxious patients and thus have a great chairside manner. No treatment or anything will be done without prior explanation and your full understanding and agreement.

e) Every member of our team can spend Time with you. This is not always possible in many practices but we have made it our Number 1 priority.

f) We have an available hypnotherapist that can help reduce anxiety and dental phobia.

2. The sounds and smells. Dental practices often ‘smell’ like surgeries and that lets our imaginations run wild. We start conjuring up all sorts of images of torture again linked to that antiseptic uninviting smell and sounds. All we want to do is escape them. They bring alight our past memories.

GOOD NEWS: At The Perfect Smile Studios you will instantly notice a difference. We have created a relaxing spa-type environment with soothing music and calming aromatherapy oils burning in the background. We have a dedicated relaxation lounge where you can relax before and after treatment in a sensually attractive place. You will not feel like you are in a dental practice and you will feel confident and relaxed with us. We want to make dentistry possible for you not an inhibition.

3. The telling off. Life has a way of taking over and many of us are extremely busy people working, raising families and meeting expectations. The last thing we need as adults is a “lecture” about why we aren’t taking care of our teeth from our dentist! Also, we do not want to be made to feel guilty or embarrassed about the condition of our mouth. We just want to be taken care of.

GOOD NEWS: We at The Perfect Smile Studios understand this. You will not be given a lecture or a telling-off in our studio. All we do is try to understand your requirements of us. We want to know your dental needs so then we can do everything in our ability to help you and exceed your expectations. We specialise is customised individual dental programs. You will be treated in a manner that meets your every expectation and more.

4. The bad memories.

GOOD NEWS: We can’t wipe out your past experiences or change them but we can make sure that your future experience are amazing. We can also use hypnotherapy and special cognitive behavioural techniques to help “cope” with uncomfortable thoughts and perceived situations. Often it is just a case of TLC and someone that actually listens to your concerns and then acts upon them in the way that you want without trying to impose any situation upon you.
