Kyle, whose daytime programme concentrates on the challenges of often dysfunctional lives, freely admits to his phobia of dentists and how Estetica has helped him deal with his worries.
In an interview with Sheengate Publishing journalist Rob Edwards, Kyle said; “I had a terrible experience about 15 years ago. I was absolutely terrified.”
“A tooth shattered and it started to go down my throat. The guy started to panic and the nurse started to panic, and you just think, jeez!”
But Estetica owner Dr Sina Salimi, a Dental Phobia Certified dentist, sprung to the rescue with a service that Kyle finds decidedly more palatable.
“I think it’s quality and I think it’s class and I think it’s value for money,” said Kyle. “It’s a good place to come. I can literally, honestly tell you I was terrified of the dentist. Now it’s great. “I live locally, and I work in America, in London, Manchester, but I would always come here or send for him,” says Kyle. “This man just did everything I wanted doing and I never ever, ever felt any pain.” Sina took his certificate from SAAD (Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry) in 1999 and has provided sedation dentistry ever since. Sina said; “Historically, sedation dentistry was designed for treating nervous patients for acute problems, ie: extraction, fillings etc. However, I now provide everything under conscious sedation, like implants, smile make-over and surgery. “All of our staff are trained and each holds a certificate from SAAD, which is the most prestigious society for sedation dentistry. Personally, I have also been a member of the dental phobia society for the past 12 months.” If you have a phobia or wish to see exactly what we do here at Estetica, why not contact Dr Salimi via LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter.
