Our whole team at High Oaks Dental appreciates how stressful attending the dentist can be with some patients afraid of a general check up to those who have a fear simple treatments.

Dental phobia can stop a patient attending a dentist for years. This can change a dental problem which could have been treatable to a terminal problem resulting in its loss.

With this in mind we have undertaken further training to ensure all our patients leave with a smile and confidence in our team.

Our dentists have vast experience in treating patients with a variety of levels of phobia. Dr Shilan Shah is a  Dental Phobia Certified  dentist  Click Here  to verify.

We have seen patients travel from Isle of Wight and Ireland and made them regular patients with our gentle, kind nature and friendly, safe environment.

All our treatments are tailored to each patient and completed at your speed.

We have taken added measures to ensure we can minimise your anxiety and ensure you have a positive experience.

At your initial visit your dentist will perform a full examination and discuss your treatment aims. Together we will create a customised plan to ensure we achieve these aims, and hopefully you will become a regular patient of ours.

Not sure you can have dental treatment awake?

We have thought of a solution. We now have consultant anaesthetist from London hospitals organise our sedation clinics. This sedation is completed by IV sedation which does not put you to sleep but rather gives you a very drowsy feeling and more compliant and accepting of treatment. There are less risks of using sedation in this way than undertaking treatment with general anaesthetic. The sedative also has amnesic qualities meaning you will most likely forget the treatment after we have finished.

Don’t like the noise of the dentist’s drill?

No problems. We have invested in the latest electric handpieces, reducing their noise and vibrations on the tooth. We routinely use these handpieces for finishing our precision work so again you can rest assured you are receiving the very best care.

Don’t like noise generally?

No worries. You can bring in your ipod, Walkman etc and plug your headphones in whilst we treat you.

Some of our nervous patients have been kind enough to leave testimonials so you can see how their journey has changed their lives.
