Are you scared of the dentist but need dental treatment?

Do you feel ashamed of your smile because you cannot face a dental visit? Are you searching for a dentist for nervous patients but don’t know where to look?

We can help. At New Life Teeth, we’re here to help you to take back control of your dental health and give you the treatment you desperately need or want.

We may be dentists but we’re patients too!

Our highly experienced teams of dentists, oral surgeons and dental professionals may have been in the industry for many years but like you, we too are patients.

We relate to the trepidation and dental anxiety you feel before undergoing treatment and have had to overcome many of the same fears that you face.

By using a combination of gentle dental techniques, state-of-the-art technology and a deep understanding of dental anxiety we will help you overcome your fears, phobias or anxieties surrounding dental treatments. Find out more below about how we do that…

Taking back control of your treatment


Gentle dentistry

Our dentists and dental specialists have been operating at the highest level for many years and between us have over 135 years of experience. We have a reputation for gentle dentistry and our compassionate and caring nature shines through. We take the time to explain treatments in detail so you have a good understanding of exactly what to expect and won’t begin treatment until you are 100% ready. If you want to stop during treatment or the experience is getting too much, you can simply raise your hand and we will wait until you are ready again.


A calming environment

If you are looking for a dentist for nervous patients, the first thing you should notice is a welcoming and calming environment. Our dental centres are purpose-built with the patient in mind. They are far removed from the clinical feel that you might expect and are warm, welcoming and relaxing places to be. Moreover, our reception teams are friendly and approachable and will put you at ease.


IV dental sedation

IV sedation is a popular solution for our nervous patients. It uses a sedative medication that is administered through an IV line which helps to reduce anxiety, pain, and discomfort during dental procedures. With IV sedation, you will be awake during your treatment, but you will feel relaxed and calm. You will not be able to remember anything about the procedure.


Other dental sedation

For those who prefer something extra to help them relax we also provide different types of dental sedation options. These include inhalation sedation (happy gas) and oral sedation, taken in the form of a pill. Whatever you choose, dental sedation ensures you have a safe and restful appointment.
