Dental phobia is the main reason people put off seeking dental treatment. Many nervous and anxious patients put up with discomfort and pain when the problem is easily treatable – painlessly! Such delays can lead to tooth loss and have a detrimental effect on overall health. It doesn't have to be this way!
We understand that you feel nervous about visiting the dentist. We are committed to helping you overcome your dental fears, so however dental anxiety affects you, get in touch, we can help. We find that even with the most nervous of patients, time and kindness works wonders. Our appointments are calm, unhurried, welcoming, and our chairside manner is friendly and relaxing.
If you are anxious about your dental or hygiene appointments, let us know in advance and we will do our utmost to put you at ease, Treatments for instance can be broken down into bite-sized chunks so they are manageable for you and easier to cope with. We also prioritise our first morning and after lunch appointments for nervous patients so that you don't experience any delays – we know that waiting can increase anxiety, so we'll do our best to eliminate this.
Every member of our team will make your visit as comfortable as possible, from the moment you arrive. We will explain everything to you at each stage of your dental journey and you will always be able to ask us questions. We want you to feel in control of your dental health and your dental treatment, and we will help you to achieve just that.

I have been coming to Benhill Dental Practice for a number of years' now and purely because of the treatment and service provided by Dr Alexandra Fivey and support staff.
My 9 year old daughter recently had to have two fillings and an extraction, Dr Alexandra handled her so well and we were so pleased with the outcome! I couldn't recommend her enough as a dentist! Thank you!
Alex and Rachel always provide a professional and thorough service for myself, my husband and daughter. We have been going to see them for the last few years and have always had a positive and personal experience. They are very patient and gentle with my 10 year old daughter, who before going, was not keen on seeing the dentist or hygienist! I would highly recommend!
Great, friendly dentists! Dr Alexandra and her colleagues go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and offer the best advice.
I would like to thank Dr Alexandra for making our first visit in the practice an amazing experience. My son who is 6 years old needed his tooth taken out after being inflamed for some time. Dr Alexandra is a BRILLIANT dentist, clearly with lots of experience and professionalism and someone who loves her job…We are very happy that we found Dr Alexandra! Thank you so much!!!
