Help us to help you by following these basic guidelines
Going to see the dentist isn’t high on many people’s list of favourite things to do. Most patients however, recognise the importance of doing so and will, even if slightly reluctantly, make sure that they have regular appointments booked at the AJ Dental Group in Woking so that their teeth and gums can be monitored on an ongoing basis.
For some patients, the anxiety levels can be quite high, causing them to do certain things both before and during the appointment which can add to their anxiety and also make the job of examining or treating their teeth more difficult for the dentist!
In today’s blog, we take a look at some of the things that you should avoid doing, so making our job and your experience, that much more satisfactory.
Don’t cancel your appointment
There may be occasions that cancelling an appointment is unavoidable, such as illness or needing to collect a sick child from school. Where this is unavoidable, all that we ask is that you let us know as soon as you can and make sure to rearrange your appointment too. Patients who are nervous about seeing a dentist may also be tempted to cancel, perhaps with some kind of an excuse. This may particularly be the case where they are due to receive treatment for a problem that isn’t causing any pain at that particular time.
The reality is that cancelling an appointment at our Woking dental clinic for this reason is simply storing up trouble for the future and will almost certainly mean that your future treatment will be more extensive.
Please don’t be late!
