Nervous Patients

At Affinity Dental Care we endeavour to create a stress-free environment to make a visit as comfortable as possible even for those with a dental phobia.Our team understand that visiting Affinity dental care can be a real issue but be assured if you feel this way you are not alone and we will never dismiss your fears or judge you. We have treated many patients who feel the same way.We have a sensitive approach and aim to make everybody feel at ease, but If our calm environment and kind team still isn’t quite enough to quiet those nerves, don’t despair we can offer intravenous sedation to help you.What is Sedation Dentistry?Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures and patients are awake during the procedure.
