It can be very tough to pluck up the courage to call the dentist. We understand that some people even put up with ongoing pain as they are too anxious to get the problem treated. We have lots of experience helping patients to overcome their dental fears.


When you call us, you'll hear a sympathetic and friendly voice, and once you are here, every effort is made to help you feel at home and relaxed. When it’s your turn to meet your Dentist, you will have plenty of time to ask us any questions you may have and explain your wishes for your dental care.


A lot of our patients tell us they worry about visiting the dental surgery. That is why we explain precisely what we are doing, before during and after treatment. Don’t forget you are in control, and we respect how you feel.

Patient Support Team

Introduced in 2018, our patient care support team plays a vital role in caring for our nervous patients. They are the voice, the face and the friend you need and deserve from the very beginning of your treatment journey. They will make sure the dentist is informed of your needs, fears and desires. Our service is personal; we understand that confidence is about meeting and being supported by the same people throughout your journey - someone that can work at your pace and offer practical advice and reassurance when you need it most.


Wand for Pain-Free Injections

The Wand Pain-Free Injection is an alternative to traditional injection. It's patented technology controls the flow rate and pressure of the anesthesia during the injection procedure to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness. We also routinely use topical anesthetic gel that numbs your gum so that even routine injections are markedly less uncomfortable. All our Dentists specialise in pain-free dentistry and ensure your comfort throughout any dental procedure.


IV Sedation Dentistry

Sedation is one of the most comforting options we can offer our nervous patients. Pembroke Dental staff are trained to safely and effectively induce deeply relaxed, pain-free states of consciousness if required. A sedative drug is introduced via an injection in your arm by our specially trained dental specialists to induce deep sedation during dental treatment. It also has the added advantage of an amnesia effect, meaning that you won't remember what happened during your dental treatment. IV Sedation is usually reserved for patients who are very anxious about a dental visit so please talk to us about your requirements so we can find a solution that is appropriate for you.


Inhalation Sedation

Inhalation sedation or Nitrous Oxide Gas (laughing gas) is one form of conscious sedation that we offer nervous patients. Pembroke Dental staff are trained to effectively induce deeply relaxed, pain-free states of consciousness while administrating nitrous oxide gas through a special mask during dental treatment. There is no injection or needle in the arm involved. Nitrous Oxide Gas is a proven and effective way of inducing relaxation and pain-free relief as well as a mild amnesiac effect. The sedation effect of the gas wears off very quickly after treatment which is a real advantage. Nitrous Oxide is a safe, soothing and effective sedation option for both adults and children.
