Nervous Patients and Special Needs

At Bega Dental Practice we understand that for many, coming to the dentist can be a nerve-wracking experience. Our staff strive to ensure a patient’s visit is as stress-free as possible. If there is anything we can do to make your visit more comfortable please let us know, we are happy to help.

Fear can be overcome in many ways, including counselling, relaxation, or mindfulness practices. Some patients find that sedation can be very helpful in overcoming anxiety during dental visits. We offer a range of sedation options for patients of all ages to help ensure a visit is as relaxed as possible. This may include prescription of an oral sedative, nitrous oxide (happy gas), or in some cases general anaesthesia (patient is asleep) in a hospital setting.

Our practice offers a supportive environment and we welcome the opportunity to work with patients with special needs. Please inform us if there is anything we can do to better ensure the comfort of the visit.
