The Dental Button

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Reducing Dental Anxiety

Dr Mike Gow talks about pressing the right button when it comes to managing anxious patients in the latest edition of Dentistry Scotland Magazine

The Dental Button is a device that literally gives control back to the patient. By pushing a button, patients can stop the power supply to the dentist’s hand piece and therefore immediately stop dental treatment at any time.

The team at the Berkeley Clinic are continually striving to offer the best possible care for people who suffer from dental anxiety. We understand how difficult it can be for many people to even hear the word ‘dentists’. Dr. Mike Gow uses various phobia management techniques to help with these fears and it is very common that our patients, who visit us with dental anxiety, eventually are completely relieved of their fears.

If you suffer from dental fear please arrange a consultation with Dr Michael A. Gow BDS (Gla) MSc Hyp (Lon)
President of The British Society of Medical & Dental Hypnosis (Scotland)

Berkeley Clinic Offers B-Calm System For Dental Anxiety

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

Acoustic Anaesthetic

The Berkeley Clinic is one of the first dental practices to offer the ‘b-Calm’ system which uses a complex blend of frequency patterns specifically designed to mask sounds of the dental environment. This device functions as an “acoustic anaesthetic” allowing you to control your own level of relaxation, reducing anxiousness and pain perception.

b-Calm is a personal audio system that was designed to relieve patients who suffer from dental phobias of the noises from dental procedures as well as promote a calm and relaxed mind. The ‘b-Calm’ system utilizes in-earphones to execute the Audio Sedation technology; a proprietary blend of noise eliminating signals optimized within the calming sounds of nature. The b-Calm system allows the patient to gain control of their dental experience, all in the palm of their hand.

To see what patients think about the ‘b-Calm’ system please visit http://b-calmdental.com/

For further information on the services we provide for patients with dental anxiety please contact our reception on 0141 564 1900

If you are looking for the highest quality of care, look no further. The Berkeley Clinic offers a wide variety of services such as Cosmetic Dentistry, TMD treatment and Anxiety Management all under one roof. For a Cosmetic Dentist Glasgow you can expect the best of care at all times.
