Nervous patients

Some people don’t enjoy visiting the dentist but we do everything we can to ensure that our patients look forward to coming to see us, whatever their age. From the moment you walk through the door at Marlborough Dental Studio you will notice a difference. The ambience, the décor and the welcome you will receive will immediately put you at ease and relieve any feelings of anxiety you may have.

All of our dentists, hygienists and dental nurses have excellent chairside manners and offer unhurried appointments taken at a pace you are comfortable with. We also have a host of new technologies up our sleeves to make your visit even more pleasant, including intravenous sedation and air abrasion for drill-free fillings.

Intravenous sedation or conscious sedation is a very safe and reliable method of controlling dental anxiety and phobia. The sedation is given through a small needle in the crook of your arm and it makes you feel relaxed and calm. You will remain conscious throughout your appointment. Many patients do not remember much of their procedure and treatment that may have taken an hour or more will seem to have taken less time.

Pain free injections

With The Wand you might not even know you’ve had an injection. This is because The Wand works more effectively than traditional syringes, resulting in a more pleasant experience, no pain and very little numbness. The Wand can be used on adults and children alike and is so precise that your dentist can anaesthetise just one tooth. This may result in reduced numbness of the tongue, cheek or lip, allowing you to return to your normal routine able to eat, drink and smile.


Nervous patients will be especially interested to learn that we are among just 700 dentists in the UK to have invested in Cerec technology. The Cerec system enables us to design, create and fit a porcelain filling, dental crown or veneer during a single appointment – something that would have taken at least two weeks and required multiple visits in the past. We don’t need to take impressions either. Please ask us for more information.
