• Have a chat with our dental staff about ways to cope with dental stress.

• Ask lots of questions as fear of the unknown can fuel anxiety.

• Choose a time when you’re less anxious, avoiding alcohol and caffeine before appointments.

• Take a stress ball and squeeze regularly as you’ll feel 18% less anxious.

• Use earbuds and music as a distraction device.

• Consider pre-treatment calming medication or happy gas (nitrous oxide).
