Nervous Patients

Helping our nervous patients

It is very common for patients to have worries and concerns about visiting the dentist. For some people their fears become a dental phobia that can interfere with or even prevent them from getting the care and treatment they need.

The Shine dental team have lots of experience in treating nervous patients and will help you with your dental concerns by talking through your worries and explaining every aspect of your treatment. We believe in pain free dentistry so after only a short time your concerns will be less of an obstacle to visiting the dentist.

When you arrive at Shine Dental Care in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, you will step into a bright and welcoming reception lounge that looks about as far removed from a dental waiting room as you can imagine. You can sit back and relax in one of our large, plush sofas while you sip a coffee, read a magazine or listen to ambient music. The choice is yours.

Our new treatment rooms are all airy, bright and cheery to help you feel confident and relaxed about your surroundings. The rooms are even scented, so you don’t have to worry about any of the clinical smells people often associate with a trip to the dentist.


You are very welcome to bring someone with you for moral support during your treatment. You can also bring in your own choice of music and arrange your appointment for early in the morning, so you don’t have to spend the whole day worrying.  We are there to help you.

In our experience, knowledge is power. The dentist will explain every stage of the treatment so that you understand exactly what is happening at all times. Noises, equipment and materials will be explained in advance, so you know what to expect, when and why.
