Patricia had always feared her dental appointments due to having a bad experience as a child. Her fear was so bad that she was unable to attend her appointments unless there was someone to come with her and rated herself on the scale of 1 – 10, with 10 being completely petrified, a straight 10.
Upon booking a check-up with Dr Rik Trivedi at Parrock Street Dental, Patricia described Rik’s personal and dental skills as “Brilliant with a very calm approach and was completely reassuring.” After her check-up she decided to continue treatment at Parrock Street due to the confidence she felt with the Practice and Rik’s thorough step by step explanation of her treatment.
Patricia was apprehensive and nervous about having her first appointment with a new dentist but knew it was needed as she felt her teeth were in bad condition and felt very conscious when smiling. After her first visit, she felt confident enough to go ahead with treatment and would in the near future feel confident enough to attend her appointments on her own.
Once all of Patricia’s treatment was completed at Parrock Street Dental, Gravesend, She described her overall experience as fantastic and she finally feels confident about her smile and doesn’t have to worry about what food she can eat. The use of our DVD glasses really helped the anxiety of long appointments, so she could watch her favourite films whilst having any complex treatment.
Patricia’s words of advice to other nervous/anxious patients are “Come into the waiting room to see, as the whole experience is relaxing and welcoming”
“I came to see Rik as I was really unhappy with my smile, I was missing teeth and also had broken teeth which was really affecting my chewing and confidence. I had dental implant treatment and would really recommend
“ The work I’ve had done has literally changed my life. I used to be very nervous but I love coming here. It was very comfortable and easy treatment coming from someone like me who was a phobic. Thank- you Rik and the team at Parrock Dental ”
I came to see Rik to have dental implants, I also needed a bone graft procedure all of which I was very nervous about. Rik was very sincere. I had a bone graft, dental implants and veneers. I am 100% happy with the result and would sincerely recommend Rik to everyone!
“I came here as my son recommended Parrock Dental, and my teeth were badly worn at the front and I needed dental implants at the rear to replace missing teeth. Overall I’ve been very please, it’s given me a lot more confidence with my smile, and chewing is now really good.”
