Dental Practice Clarkston

Philip Friel Advanced Dentistry

Looking for a dental practice, close to Clarkston that understands your anxieties…?

Looking after our teeth and overall oral health is essential. Poor dental and oral health can severely impact our lives, from zapping confidence to limiting the range of food we can and cannot eat.

For many patients, what holds them back from seeking help is fear or anxiety about visiting a dental practice, whether it is close to their Clarkston home or work, or not!

Studies have shown that 25% of the UK population admit to having an anxiety about visiting the dentist; 12% of the population suffer from ‘dentophobia’, a severe, often crippling fear of the dentist, dental practice and everything contained therein.

It is a very real fear that prevents many people from seeking help when they need it most, leaving dental problems and ‘injuries’ until they cannot bear the pain any longer. Many patients are also scared of blood, needles and other components on dental work and again, this fear can stop them from seeking help in the early stages.
