Looking For A Gentle Dentist In Ipswich? Look no further

Testimonials From Our Patients Show That We Really Do Care

It is fair to say that the majority of people don’t actually look forward to receiving dental treatment. Understandably, many of us probably see it as more of a necessity than something to be enjoyed.

Of course, there are some treatments that are simple and comfortable and have immediate positive benefits, but many procedures do need to be performed using a local anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort.

While modern local anaesthetics are powerful and you should not experience pain once they have taken effect, this does not mean that the dentist need not take care, and, at The Lighthouse Dental Practice, we firmly believe that patient comfort is extremely important.

Repeat visits

Some of us will probably have, at some point in our lives, received treatment from a dentist who we were not happy with. Perhaps their team was not overly friendly, or you may just have felt that they weren’t the dentist for you. Unfortunately, in some instances, this can lead to the patient politely making their follow-up appointment with no intention of going. In some cases, this may mean that you don’t see a dentist for quite some time and what might have been fairly minor issues if treated promptly, over time become significant and potentially very painful indeed.

So it is very important to see the dentist regularly, around every six months or so and of course, with a dental team you can trust. With this in mind, here at Lighthouse Dental in Ipswich, we do all that we can to make sure that our patient’s visit is as pleasant as possible.

Friendly team

From the moment that you walk through the door of The Lighthouse Dental Practice, you will be greeted with a friendly face. Our reception team are helpful and will take your details before seating you in our comfortable waiting room. Our dentists are fully aware of the level of anxiety that some people experience when receiving treatment and will do all that they can to put you at ease. You will be encouraged, by raising your hand, to let us know if you are in any discomfort during your procedure. We will then help to make you comfortable again before continuing.

For patients whose anxiety levels are so high that undergoing treatment is extremely difficult, or where a procedure may be quite lengthy, such as dental implant placement, you may wish to consider sedation. We are able to offer this at our Ipswich dental practice to enable you to undergo your treatment.

What people say

Of course, you would expect any dentist to claim that they are friendly, but we prefer to let our patients speak for us. Take a look at the testimonials page of the site to see why people keep coming back to The Lighthouse Dental Practice.
