At Dental Suite, our approach is to acknowledge the person, and our expertise goes beyond treating only teeth. We know that some people find going to the dentist stressful, being wary due to an unpleasant earlier experience or simply out of date social conditioning regarding visits to a dentist.
We have the expertise not only to perform dental procedures gently and painlessly, but to address stress and anxiety in patients. Our decades of experience had driven us to find alternative means of dealing with patients’ distress through the use of stress reduction techniques.
And so we offer the following practical therapies as an adjunct to our dental services:
- Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
We have studied these techniques extensively, and also incorporated principles of recent disciplines including Neuroplasticity, Epigenetics and the Poly Vagal activation.
We ask our patients to cite any past dental trauma so that we can incorporate one or more of these stress reduction techniques into the dental treatment and work at a tolerable, comfortable pace. We work to replace any trauma with a tolerable and pleasant experience.
We also endeavour to ensure that children do not gain an aversion to dental treatment, taking special care to create a happy and fun atmosphere so that they enjoy their dental visits for years to come.
