Anxious Patients

I never thought that I would be able to spend all that time in the chair having the work done, but you encouraged me all the way. I can’t thank you enough, you have given me back my smile.” – Linda Dixon

Feeling Nervous?

We appreciate that many people feel anxious or nervous about visiting a dentist. In fact, around one in ten people are so worried about seeing a dentist that they simply don’t go, and often end up in pain and needing a lot of restorative treatment which could otherwise have been prevented.

At Alex Jones Dentistry we put nervous patients at ease, so that they are able to see us regularly and avoid any major oral healthcare problems. We are a patient and caring team, happy to let you take things at your own pace, whilst offering gentle encouragement.

Having a fear of the dentist, Laura Grosvenor the dental therapist was absolutely brilliant! She completed my filling professionally and with care. She is an asset to the practice, thank you!

I attended the surgery after 3 years of not attending a dentist, due to my fear. My husband pushed me into coming but, despite my initial apprehension, I am so relieved I have attended. The dentist has been not only thorough and professional but also friendly and put me at ease.
Nicola Mackay
I was so nervous, but Emmer really looked after me and put me at ease. The thought of having to have a denture in was unthinkable and now I don’t have to. The implant is amazing and looks just like a real tooth! Alex has let me smile again!
Mrs Julie Beever
Mike is so kind, helpful and reassuring. He sensed that I was nervous and scared ahead of my procedure – he kept me calm, talked to me through every stage and kept checking on me that I was okay. He is a true professional and made my experience much better than I ever imagined. Thank you so much Mike!
Sarah Abdy-Hayes
On my first visit to the dentist, I was a very nervous patient. Since coming to Alex Jones’ practice I have become a more confident patient. It has built my confidence up! On a scale of 1-10, I would say I have gone from 1 to 9! Thanks very much!!
Mrs R.G.
Dr Alex Jones has always been sympathetic as to my anxieties and has taken considerable care, both in building my confidence and allaying my fears, throughout the course of my restorative treatment. With my restored dental efficiency, my anxieties greatly reduced.
