The dental fear blog has been quiet for a while. Fear not though dear reader, we have been  busy  training and discovering new ways to help people with their dental fear rather than talking about them. I hope to redress the balance a little this year with a bit more talk! To start 2014 we have two new ideas that might help you to make this the year that you stop dental fear from affecting your life.

Sedation Service Launch

Firstly after much deliberation we have decided to start offering a sedation service as well as our traditional medication free, nervous patients programme. After nearly 20 years in practice,  as well as listening to the feedback from readers of the blog I have come to realise that despite all of the techniques we employ to help people beat dental fear without medication, there are still a good few people who simply cannot beat their fear any other way. For this reason we decided that starting

a dental sedation service seemed like the next logical step. As a result of much training our sedation service is launching this month

To introduce our new dental sedation service in Edinburgh  we are offering a free  sedation suitability consultation (opens in a new window) with one of our team where you can discover more and find out if sedation is right for you. Click here to request a visit ( opens in a new window

New E-Book

If you are more inclined to avoid sedation then we still have something new that might help.  After some time, and a few late nights we are launching our new “Beat Your Dental Fear” e- book. It is 36 pages of help information and advice that pulls together several years of blog posts and more than 40 years of collective experience treating  patients who would rather be anywhere else than at the dentist!  It follows on from the 7 day beat your dental fear e-course and goes into much more detail.  To Get your free  copy click here.(opens in a new window)

In the mean time enjoy the little quote above and remember that you are not alone!
