    Nervous dental patient here. I was a child the last time I went to the dentist. Nearly 30 now and I have some trouble with pain lately and I need to get this looked at. Do dentists have a long wait list? Do dentists have any covid policies?

    i go to belvedere dental myself, ive no idea on their waiting list, but im sure all dentists have strict covid policies right now. i avoided dentists for years, and im unfortunately experiencing that mistake now. im prone to anxiety, and find them brilliant, theyre well use to anxious customers

    Thank you for the recommendation. Will phone them in the morning. Ticking over with ibuprofen, salt water rinses and clove oil. I'm nervous about sitting in the dentist chair after so long.

    they may give you a small questionnaire while in the waiting room, just be honest if it asks you about your previous dental experiences, and how you re generally feeling while waiting

    I think Philip Christie specialises in nervous patients. Smiles in Dundrum used to have him on their roster but not sure where he's based in Waterford these days.

    I'd highly recommend Aisling Bannon upstairs over Ardkeen stores, seem to be lots of great dentists around these days. Thankfully kids dont seem to have the same fear that we had back in the day!

    I'd highly recommend Ronan O'Donovan in Ferrybank. Very understanding with nervous patients, has a lovely manner as have the dental nurses who who work there.

    The boys on Ballybricken would only love to put the foot down on your chest before yanking a tooth of you. Wouldn't recommend.
