Have you ever wondered why dental records are used to identify people? Your teeth are unique to you, just like your fingerprints. At Sandygate Dental, we know and understand that every person is different and that is why we have a patient first approach to dental care. As a continuously evolving dentist in Sheffield we need to get to know you, understand what you expect from us, and understand how we can best meet and - where possible - exceed your expectations. To achieve this, we spend time getting to know you; your input and feedback helps us to constantly strive to make your dental experience comfortable and stress free. This also allows us to create a personalised dental treatment plan specifically to suit your needs and ambitions.
Dynamic and progressive
At Sandygate Dental, we are a compact team with skills that complement each other; this allows us to be progressive and flexible, and allows us to be able to make the necessary changes to improve where necessary. From the time you arrive, we ensure that you are given a warm and friendly welcome, and when you leave we want you to be calm and thoroughly satisfied with your experience. We want our dedication and passion as your dentist in Sheffield to be reflected in your satisfaction with our overall service.
Emergencies and nervous patients
It is unfortunate that there are still patients who feel too nervous to attend regular dental care, and who only visit the dental surgery when they are in distress. We provide emergency appointments to our patients which helps them to develop confidence that we are always here to help them in the event of a dental emergency. There are many reasons for this dental trepidation, and we apply a variety of methods to help you to overcome your dental anxiety. Our team is trained to identify and practise anxiety reducing techniques to help you to relax and be calm. Many dental phobias stem from a previous bad experience or fear of the unknown. We utilise calming music, pre-appointment introductions, and discussion as some of our methods to help you relax. You are encouraged to ask as many questions as you feel are necessary to help you understand your condition and the treatments suggested. We want you to know that you are in control of your own treatment and that, as your dentist in Sheffield, we will wait until you are ready to undertake your course of treatment.
Start with the basics
Understanding the importance of your teeth and how best to care for them helps to build confidence. Learning the proper technique and using the right type of toothbrush are essential to ensure that you do not damage your teeth and gums. Attending our dental practice at least every six months will also help you to look after your oral cavity and allow you to develop a trusting and candid relationship with us. As you become more familiar with us and the dental environment, you will feel more relaxed when you visit. This way, you will not only be encouraged to start to take good care of your teeth and gums, but you will feel less anxious about your dental surgery visits.

As dental clinicians we are also trained in anatomy and, as you have already developed a relationship with us, why not take advantage of one of our other services. If you feel that you would like some anti-wrinkle or dermal filler treatment, why not have it done with us.
