Nervous Patients

One Big Promise

One in four of us dread a visit to the dentist. Being afraid of the dentist means different things to different people, maybe it’s the anticipation of some pain or a previous bad experience. At the Exeter Dental Centre we can make you one very big promise, we promise to look after you really well. We specialise in dealing with nervous patients and only work with the very best people for your care.

Great dentists, fantastic experts, super specialists, kind hygienists, fabulous receptionists and caring nurses

We are informal but hugely professional and pride ourselves on looking after people really well. We believe that if dentists take their time, patients will never suffer with pain. So we never rush.
