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. Cherrybank Dental Spa 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 Cherrybank Dental Spa we find that even with the most nervous of patients, all they need is time and kindness. Therefore, our principal dentist  Chris, 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 dental phobic patients to pop in, meet our team and have a look around our Edinburgh 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:

“Cherrybank Dental Spa is amazing. I would recommend this to anyone especially if you’re nervous of going to the dentist. Ever since I started coming I have felt at ease, especially as I am very anxious person about going to the Dentist. From the minute you walk in the door everyone is so welcoming and friendly. So glad this is my Dentist would never go anywhere else. Totally pain-free and makes me feel so relaxed and at ease. ” Laura 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.

I have just completed a second round of teeth straightening (teen braces, did not wear my retainer), this time with the lovely Cherrybank team. Using a lingual brace, it only took 5 months for my bottom teeth to move into position. The team were amazing, professional and efficient during each visit. Every step was explained clearly and I felt no pain/discomfort whatsoever. Would definitely recommend and I look forward to returning for further treatments. Special thanks to Rhona, Grianne, Alex and Umair :)read more

I visited Cherrybank for Invisalign treatment and couldn't have been happier with the experience I had over 18 months or so. Every single member of staff is absolutely lovely, professional, reassuring and happy to go that extra mile at the drop of a hat. Cherrybank's environment, skills and patient care are outstanding. I'm so much happier with my smile and would highly recommend to others. Huge thanks to everyone (especially Chris and Tammy for putting up with my many demands!)read more

Dr Katy the dentist explained everything to me in language I could understand. I would highly recommend anyone who is anxious to visit as it really was a great experience, didn't even feel like I was at the dentist!read more

1,205 days ago I walked into Cherrybank Dental Spa, nervous and anxious. I couldn’t bare anyone seeing my teeth, I mumbled and covered my mouth when speaking to people up close. The team at Cherrybank have transformed my life. After a process of getting my mouth healthy, I started my Invisalign journey. Today I walked out feeling emotional - I’m going to miss these ladies. The service you receive is impeccable, the team are always smiling and encourage you every step of the way - no matter what your journey. I want to take this opportunity to thank Kirsty! You have been amazing, you’ve pushed me further than I ever thought I could go - I will forever be grateful!! I would recommend Cherrybank Dental Spa 💯Me and my smile will be back 😁read more

Best place where I could have had ever be treated! I highly appreciate and recommend the whole team at Cherry Bank Dental Spa who have majorly supported me throughout my orthodontic treatment. They all have been showing an enormous degree of professionalism, care, best knowledge in the field and amazing support. I can not recommend this clinic highly enough, and I can not offer any more gratitude to the staff members! Special thanks to Dr. E.Halley and Dr. C.McCrudden, group of lovely dental nurses and receptionists, and not the least, the Smile advisor. 😁 Best team! Thank you for everything you have done for me! 👏read more

After being unable to get into my regular dentist due to Covid since last March and with my wedding coming up I decided I needed to look for a private dentist. Other family members recommended cherry bank to me and even with the 4hour round trip I cannot recommend the practice enough. From the minute I walked in I was made to feel at ease, all of the staff that I met were extremely friendly & couldn’t do enough for you. Miriam & Kirsty were both great, I was talked through everything they were doing. Kirsty was very light handed and I can honestly say that I barely felt anything even with tooth & gum sensitivity. I have never had such a positive experience at a dentist but it never once felt clinical or daunting even with covid procedures. Thank you all xread more

I would definitely recommend Cherrybank dental. Having had bad experiences at other dentists I am not the easiest person with anxiety and nerves but everything from the start has been amazing. Tammy helped me so much at the beginning going through all my options. I cannot thank Chris enough for giving me my smile and Marta for all my hand holding and keeping me calm. So happy I have now finally found a dentist that I am comfortable enough to go to. Thank you so much guys honestly a life changing experience with you.read more
