"Dentist was great"

About: Specialist services / Special needs dental service/Community Dental Service

(as a parent/guardian),

My son has to have a filling today. He was really nervous to the point of feeling really sick. He went into the dental surgery and the dentist and the nurse reassured him he was going to be okay. Told him everything they were going to do had to be done with no fuss. Thanks to the reassurance of the dental team. I would like to thank them both for making the experience reassuring and pleasant as it can be visiting a dentist.

He has got to go for another filling very soon and he is not nervous about having that done. My son says “if there are any children feeling nervous about going to the dentist it not as bad as he thought”. Everybody was nice.

Response from Alexandra Hobson, Senior Dental Nurse, Salaried Dental, County Health Partnerships

Thank you so much for posting your feedback.

I'm so pleased to know you and your son had such a good experience during his recent visit.

The Dental team work hard to ensure patients feel at ease and reassurred throughout their visits. Your sons words show how successful taking this time and care for each individual patient can be.

Its lovely to hear your sons confidence has grown so much and I wish you both all the best for the future.

I will ensure your kind words are shared with the team.

Thanks again.
