Let an experienced anxiety dentist help you!
Difference between a regular dentist and an anxiety dentist?
We gladly explain the difference between a regular dentist and an anxiety dentist, so you know what to expect when you make an appointment with our clinic.
The anxiety dentist listens to your story and your wishes.
The anxiety dentist takes the time to explain everything elaborately. We also check whether we understand each other well. We listen to your wishes closely. Then, together, we look at how we can proceed with a diagnosis and treatments and discuss what you need for this. Finally, we include well-founded dental treatment advice.
The anxiety dentist puts you at ease.
Comfort and compassion are about more than just expertise as a dental specialist. People skills are essential. Our anxiety dentist masters these skills. He or she is understanding, friendly, and very patient.
The anxiety dentist makes agreements and sticks to them.
Unfortunately, we often hear that agreements are made but are not kept elsewhere. That is NOT what an anxiety dentist does. He or she sticks to the agreements you make. For example, if you raise your hand because they have to stop, they will.
Doing dentistry differently.
Do you have a suggestion to do it differently? For example, putting on headphones or sitting upright, or bending over? Whatever request you have, the anxiety dentist will be happy to find a solution that suits your preferences. This applies to a painless treatment as well. Our anxiety dentist is an expert in anesthetics. Here too, we listen to you carefully and take you seriously. The anxiety dentist only proceeds with the treatment if you really do not feel anything anymore.
You have the choice between an anxiety dentist and an anesthesia dentist at the CDC Clinic. Generally, for most dental treatments, anesthesia is not necessary. However, the anxiety dentist can also treat you painlessly with a local anesthetic. If experiencing the treatment 'consciously' or 'awake' is an absolute no-go, the anesthetic dentist can offer you a perfect alternative. We do everything to make it as pleasant as possible for you.
Our experience shows that after treatment under anesthesia, patients have gained more confidence in the dentist. This can also take away some of the fear. Anesthesia is often no longer necessary for the follow-up treatments by the anxiety dentist. However, if you have not yet overcome your fear, treatment under anesthesia will still be an option.
