“You should not be aware of your teeth, you should not feel them and you should smile with confidence”
Dr Manie Opperman
If these simple principles are not in place, you can appear to be very miserable.
Being embarrassed about your teeth can affect your whole life, emotionally and physically.
You can be perceived as sulky or rude if you don’t smile or smile behind your hand. It can even hinder relationships and can lead to low self esteem and lost of confidence.
Being apprehensive about visiting a dentist is normal. Some people have a genuine phobia which we understand.
At Hockerill Dental we are very aware of these facts. People do not get treated as 28 teeth in a ball of protoplasm…. with a wallet around the neck!!
Our aim is to provide you with the surroundings where you can relax, feel no pain and leave confident, smiling and without fear of a dentist!
We look forward to welcoming you to Hockerill.
See you soon
