If you’ve visited any dental website you’ll have undoubtedly read that the practice in question carries out the ‘highest standards of patient care‘, but what exactly does that mean? Here at Church Road Dental, care extends beyond standard Cheshire oral surgery or when practising Cheshire dental and cosmetics and in fact, it all starts the very minute a patient enters our practice.
Creating the right atmosphere
It’s understandable that most people feel anxious before a visit to their local dentist. Therefore we believe that it’s important to create the right atmosphere as soon as a patient walks through the door. By creating a relaxing and tranquil area, we’ve found that any nervous or anxious patients instantly feel calmer. This means additions such as comfortable seating, warm colours on the walls, fresh cut flowers, relaxing music and the smell of freshly brewed coffee are as important as any chair-side care we can give. This is far removed from the clinical, sanitised white tiling and bare-floored look of practices in the past. In fact, even the name ‘clinic‘ has now been replaced with ‘practice‘ or ‘office’ making it sound a more attractive place to be.
Better trained staff
While all staff are obviously trained in dental matters, more and more focus is being placed on how to deal with anxious patients. Did you know for example that one in four people suffer from some form of dental anxiety? In some cases the problem is so bad that a person would rather suffer with tooth problems than visit the dentist for Cheshire oral surgery. To combat this, many staff including those here at Church Road are trained specifically to deal with anxious patients. This may be something as simple as talking them through any Cheshire dental and cosmetics procedures, so that they know exactly what to expect. Or, initiating alternative forms of help such as conscious sedation when undergoing examinations, cleaning or surgical procedures.
So ultimately, when we say we practice the highest standards or Church Road dental care we really do mean it. Why not come and talk to us about how we can help you combat your fears so that you can have the necessary treatment you need.
