An introduction to

Nervous Patients

A fear of the dentist or anything to do with dental treatment is very common and affects thousands of people. Dental anxiety can range from being slightly nervous to a fear that’s so bad it prevents you from having important treatment done. A lot of dental fears stem from past unpleasant experiences with the dentist, maybe as a child. Many others though are simply a fear of the unknown.


• Being scared of what the dentist will say about my teeth
• Being frightened of the dentist’s chair
• Being frightened that treatment will be painful
• Fear of dental injections and needles
• Feeling out of control
• Choking
• The noise and smell of the Dentist
• Dental instruments


Here at Repton Dental our aim is to make sure every patient that visits us feels as comfortable and relaxed as possible. This all begins the very first time we meet where the dentist will take a full dental history and try and find out what your worries are relating to dentistry. From here, our journey supporting you through dental treatment will begin. Our team members are friendly and understanding. We’ll help you through visits or treatments, letting you take things at your own pace.


We have a range of membership plans designed to fit patients needs. View our dental plans for more information. 

For all the treatments we prescribe we generate a bespoke treatment plan for the patient with costs outlined. A summary of our general charges can be found on our treatment prices page.

We are a fully independent practice and only accept private patients. We do offer affordable dental membership plans to help spread with the cost of
your dental care.

You can find us in the heart of the south Derbyshire Village of Repton. We are located at the crossroads of Well Lane, Pinfold Lane, High Street and Main Street.
