Overcoming Fear: A Patient’s Journey to Dental Implants

Overcoming Fear: A Patient’s Journey to Dental Implants


I had been considering dental implants for a long time as I had lost numerous teeth through neglect but the thought of sitting in a dentist’s chair and having surgery made my stomach churn. I had always avoided the dentist for as long as I could remember. To make matters worse, I didn’t even have a regular dentist I could turn to for dental implant advice or trust.

I didn’t know who I could trust

I stumbled upon a local newspaper ad for a patient dental implant event at Gipsy Lane Advanced Dental Care At first, I was hesitant, almost skeptical. I worried that it might just be another sales pitch, reminiscent of those notorious “turkey teeth” seminars. But something inside me urged me to give it a chance, to take the leap and face my fears.

So, I attended a FREE implant event

I was so nervous walking into the event and although my husband was with me, my nerves were on edge. However, how wrong was I? One particular moment was meeting and chatting with Dr Jatin Desai, the implantologist. He came across as highly knowledgeable and kind. And as he began to speak, I felt a sense of calm. His knowledge was extensive, but it was the genuine care in his words that resonated with me the most.

No pressure just honest and kind

At the end of the meeting, Jatin took the time to listen to my concerns, patiently addressing each one. It was a stark contrast to the rushed, impersonal interactions I had come to expect from past experiences. By the end of the event, I felt confident that I had found someone I could trust with something as significant as my dental health.

FREE Consultation

The following week, I mustered the courage to book a free consultation with Jatin. It was a step I would never have dared to take in the past. The consultation proved to be a turning point. Jatin took the time to explain my treatment plan and procedure in detail, allaying my fears and answering my questions with patience.

A month later

And so, the next month, I found myself in the dental chair, undergoing the implant procedure. The fact that I was able to go through with it, under local anaesthetic no less, was a testament to the trust and confidence that Jatin had instilled in me. The experience was far removed from the nightmare I had imagined, thanks to the calm reassurance that had become synonymous with Jatin’s approach.

And now looking back…

That was in 2022 and as I look back at my journey, I am filled with gratitude for having attended that patient dental implant event. It not only led me to finding a skilled implantologist but also provided me with the courage and reassurance to take a step I had once deemed impossible. Thanks to Jatin, I now have a newfound sense of confidence and a bright, beautiful smile that I can proudly call my own.
