Poor dental health risks

Is fear making you neglect your teeth?

Corporate dental insurers Unum Dental carried out some research last year that revealed some interesting facts. According to a survey of more than 2,000 private sector employees, more than a fifth (24%) of British workers say that a fear of feeling pain or discomfort is the reason they avoid the dentist.

Women were found to be more afraid, with over a quarter (27%) declaring that they put off the recommended two dental health examinations a year out of fear of pain, compared to 22% of men.

Poor dental health risks

Poor dental health is linked to heart disease, bacterial lung infections, premature births, diabetes and strokes, meaning regular visits for dental health reviews are vital to maintaining good general health and dental wellbeing.

We know that it has been difficult to keep on top of regular dental visits over the past few months due to the government’s decision to close dental practices. Dentistry On The Square is delighted to have reopened and we have heavily invested in anti-virus protection, on top of our usual strict decontamination measures to help put your mind at rest. 

Looking after anxious patients

Please don’t neglect your dental wellbeing because of dental phobia. At Dentistry On The Square we find that even with the most nervous of patients, all they need is time and kindness. Therefore, our principal dentist  Jamie, ensures our appointments are calm, unhurried and welcoming.

If you are anxious about your dental or hygiene appointments, try contacting us first for a chat.

We encourage dentally phobic patients to pop in, meet our team and have a look around our Glasgow  dental practice before going anywhere near a dental chair. But don’t just take our word for it, here are some testimonials from our patients:

“Friendly manner of everyone within the practice I was so much at ease and I still can’t believe what I have had done. I cannot recommend these guys high enough. If anyone now says anything about going to the dentist and they are uneasy about it, I always recommend Dentistry on the Square” Richie 5* Google Review

The door to our dental practice is always open to new patients, so please feel free to contact us now for more information. We look forward to meeting you soon.

Why Choose Dentistry On The Square? We’ll Let Our Patients Answer That

Just finished my teeth transformation at dentistry on the square with Daryl. I couldn’t recommend Daryl enough, he is so welcoming and absolutely outstanding at his profession and a total perfectionist at making my teeth perfect and so natural.I had Invisalign to straighten my teeth and finished off with composite bonding. I am over the moon with the results which has transformed my smile and gave me so much confidence to smile now!The whole experience from walking through the door to be greeted by the lovely girls on reception, my hygiene visits with Amy and Sophie and Daryl’s work, has been 5 star and I wouldn’t go anywhere else now to look after my teeth! What a team.Truly pain free and made to feel comfortable and relaxed at all times.Thanks again Nicola 😊read more

My visit to DOTS was a truly great experience from my initial consultation through to my final treatment the staff and Jamie my consultant explained thoroughly the course of action I required over the following few months. As a nervous patient I can honestly say I was completely relaxed watched a few movies listened to some music and indeed the whole procedure was pain free from beginning to end. I now can smile better feel less self conscious and would recommend DOTS to everyone who is thinking of improving that smile go for it they are brilliant.read more

Cannot recommend highly enough! I have just completed Invisalign treatment and I could not be happier with the results. I still can't believe that such a transformation was possible in just 7 months (and nobody even knew that I was wearing braces).From the first consultation, through to the finishing touches, the staff could not have been kinder and friendlier. Particularly Daryl and Jen and Sophie, who treated me. I always felt at ease and experienced no pain whatsoever.Thank you for giving me the confidence to smile again! The treatment and experience was worth every penny.read more

I was along seeing Sophie for a hygiene clean and getting a filling replaced. Sophie was so polite & nice, she explained everything she was doing in that appointment and also goes the extra mile to make sure you are ok & talks you through it all. The politeness between her & her assistant was so nice to hear good team work. I was in seeing Andy for my teeth whitening and going over my bonding appointment Andy explains everything so well and is so patient with the little ones. Quality service from all the DOTS team, very true on what they say it’s definitely a pain free dentist very impressed. Can’t wait to continue my journey and see my final results.read more

Thank you so much to everyone at Dentistry on the Square for taking such good care of me - I always feel like I'm in the best possible hands whenever I'm there. Everyone at the practice is so helpful, friendly and kind. I have been a nervous patient in the past, but not here! I was made to feel comfortable as soon as I walked through the door, and that feeling has continued ever since.Whether it's getting my numerous amalgam fillings replaced (thank you Sophie) or getting dental implants fitted (thanks to the Jamies), every appointment has been extremely professional and yes - pain free! The results have been exceptional, I'm absolutely delighted. 😀If you're considering dental treatment and have any doubt at all in your mind, I can assure you that you won't regret reaching out to the team at Dentistry on the Square.read more

Going to the dentist is not my favourite thing but the team at Dentistry on the Square made me forget why I was ever worried. The treatment I received from Andy and Sophie was of the highest class. They made me feel at ease and most importantly it was completely pain free! Cannot recommend highly enough, thank you!read more

Highly highly recommend. I had some orthodontic and cosmetic treatment with Andy and he was great to work with and gave me the natural results I’m happy with. Then registered my daughter and I’m so glad I did. She needed two extractions as her baby teeth weren’t budging - I was dreading it! But Sophie and Chloe were absolutely amazing at putting her at ease. She barely felt a thing and had no pain or issues afterwards. This has really built her confidence in going to the dentist. And was a massive relief for me as a parent! They also moved her appt forward as she was in pain, and phoned to see how she was the next day. Absolutely exceptional. Thanks!read more

I had been looking for a dentist and after a recommendation from a friend, I went to Dentistry on the square. I came in for a health check, cleaning and smile consultation and the process was superb. I usually hate having a cleaning and wind up in pain afterwards and loathe the process due to discomfort caused. This time round I didnt feel anything during or afterwards and the result was great. I saw Andy McIntyre and will say that I won't go anywhere else from now on. In fact I will look forward to it as they really do live up to their promise of pain free dentist. I have also recommended a friends.Thanks Andy and team.read more

I would definitely recommend coming here for treatment - I'm so pleased with my lovely straight teeth and that I have proper retainers fitted now to stop them moving again. Thank you to Daryl, and the rest of team, who are really professional, friendly, and helpful. I had all my appointments booked in advance so that my braces were off in time for my sister's wedding; nothing was too much trouble and they make you feel liked a valued patient which is pretty rare these days. I was really worked up about getting my braces off but Amy was so busy chatting away to me that I didn't even notice she'd done it - no pain at all - I don't know what I was panicking about! Thank you � xread more

All of the team at Dentistry on the Square have been extremely professional from the outset. The fast track braces were pain free and delivered excellent results within a short period of time. Impeccable service from Jamie who made me feel at ease right from the very beginning, which was greatly appreciated considering my phobia of dentistry. Thanks, Gemma!read more

I'm absolutely delighted with the treatment I received from Amy and Jamie. I was very hesitant about getting braces due to my work but my braces weren't noticeable and didn't change my speech. Amy is very bubbly and makes your feel at ease and she talks through the process very clearly. I've never flossed so well after she went through it all. When she took off my braces I was told by friends it would be sore but there was no pain involved and she took them off within minutes. Jamie has been a dream. From the very first appointment until my last he has made me feel very comfortable. My teeth look amazing thanks to him and I can't recommend him enough. I've not experienced any pain and it's been a very smooth process. Thanks again to Jamie and Amyread more
