Visiting the dentist can be a stressful experience for some people. It’s always much better if you have a dentist you can trust, who will be able to put you at ease. If you don’t feel this way about your current dentist, consider switching to a new dental practice where you can be much happier with the treatment and service you receive.
Look in your local area to see if any dental practices are taking on new patients. A lot of them won’t be and you may have to think about going to a private practice instead. This can have many other benefits, like better opening hours, longer appointments and a number of specialist cosmetic dental services. There might also be other professionals working in the practice, like dental hygienists and orthodontists, who you can make an appointment with if you have any concerns beyond a simple filling or some root canal treatment.
