Many people have fears and anxieties about dental visits. We fully understand this and promise that we will listen to you and tailor your dental treatment to your requirements. You will be made as comfortable as possible and all our team aim to treat everyone gently and make the experience as pain free as possible for you. If you don't think this is possible see the videos below as clients of ours share their experience.
Yes. Some people are so frightened of the dentist that they will not go for dental treatment. They can overcome their fears with relaxation or sedation. Our dentists are sympathetic about these feelings, and you can ask our dentists about these ways to help.
When we are faced with a challenge or something we’re afraid of, such as a visit to the dentist, our bodies produce substances, which raise our anxiety. However, we can train our bodies to work against this anxiety, by learning to relax. It’s not possible to be anxious and relaxed at the same time, so learning relaxation helps control our anxiety. You have the option to watch your favourite film or programme with our special DVD goggles, providing a cinema like viewing experience or you can listen to music to take your mind off your dental treatment.

From being terrified of going to the dentist to looking forward to
Once again amazing treatment with no pain. I had a crown and am so thrilled with my teeth. Very friendly relaxed atmosphere. I have gone from in the past being terrified of going to the dentist to looking forward to going. Crazy!!!.
Thank you all for making dental visits a pleasurable experience
As a child I had terrible dental experiences and became totally phobic about visits to the dentist. Then .... I came here, I've been coming here for many years with all the family. The reception staff always have a smile and make you feel welcome and put you at your ease. Meera is absolutely fantastic and has always gone the extra mile to ensure satisfaction. I couldn't recommend her or the practice highly enough. Thank you all for making dental visits a pleasurable experience.
My hands were shaking and I thought I will run away
I have always been very nervous and scared of dentists because I had very bad experience in the past. When I started to have pain in my tooth I was very worried but I knew it needed to be done so I visited Brightside dental and I found out that I need root canals treatment.
When I was waiting for my appointment I was very nervous and scared, my hands were shaking and I thought that I will run away but I needn't to be. Dr Ketan Shah did such a great job and was so patient and gentle with me he put me at ease and kept asking whether I was OK during the treatment.
So based on my pleasant experience I won't be worried to have another treatment done.
Thank you to Dr Ketan Shah and I would highly recommend to visit Brightside dental.
The best dental practice I have ever experienced
I am very happy to have to write this testimonial for Brightside. I am of a generation in which many people had very off-putting experiences with dentists, when they were children. My own experiences with brusque, unsympathetic dentists at a time when procedures were less advanced than now, left me with very high levels of anxiety – amounting to real fear. The consequence was that I avoided visiting dentists until something substantial needed doing – and this didn't help either my anxiety or my dental health.
This really changed for me over the last few years through the caring approach of Brightside. The practice clearly has an excellent team and they work together to provide a really customer focussed experience. They manage to provide an ambience of calm professionalism, which puts you at ease from the leadership that Ketan provides. He is an excellent dentist, explaining what's happening and what choices you have and providing excellent, even pain-free procedures. (I never imagined I would be at first name terms with my dentist! But Brightside makes it feel friendly).
Of this unedited waffle. I really just need to say that this is the best dental practice I have ever experienced, and I would recommend anyone with dentist anxiety to use it, I can't imagine any way it could be improved!
Thank you Ketan and your colleagues
I have had a broken tooth for ten years! Finally it's fixed! Quick, efficient, friendly and reasonable service. Thank you very much for changing the way I feel: more confident. Would not consider going anywhere else.Lauren Hill her reassurance and gentle approach ensured a pain free session
Sheelna was brilliant! I am petrified of dentists but her reassurance and gentle approach ensured a pain free session of a few fillings. Thanks so much!Ciara I feel extremely relaxed and happy with my stain-free, natural white teeth
I have just experienced a "Diamond Polish" with Esther, the hygienist at Brightside Dental! I now feel extremely relaxed and happy with my stain-free, natural white teeth. Esther explained the process beforehand so I understood there were to be three easy steps. She was so gentle and reassuring that I am now considering a simple home-whitening kit! Despite the hole in my molar which I'm waiting to be filled, I never felt any sensitivity or pain, which I was concerned about before the appointment. I will definitely book in for a polish again!Emma Gray, 18, London I would have no hesitation in recommending Meera as a dentist
I have been one of Meera's patients for several years. She has always been friendly and treated me with respect and the treatment I have received has always been good. I would have no hesitation in recommending Meera as a dentist, especially to those who are feeling nervous or anxious.Jackie, Nurse, London « Back to Services
