Gentle dentists for nervous and anxious dental phobic patients in Melbourne at Verdant Dental!

We help all anxious and nervous dental patients with our gentle, caring dentists at Verdant Dental!

Dental anxiety is extremely common. A common cause goes back to childhood where we are taught to protect our heads and face from danger!

Sometimes dental treatment in your youth can cause longterm distress too. This can cause small problems to slowly develop into large problems – especially when you’ve put things off for a while.

Take the first step in managing your dental anxiety – give us a call and have a chat!

At Verdant Dental, the first step in managing anxious patients is just getting to know us.

Usually, the first person you’ll speak to is Tanina, who is on front desk duties most of the week.

Tanina speaks English and Italian fluently. When you call Verdant Dental on 9379 3736, you’ll meet Tanina! Have a chat with her, and we’ll organise an appointment with a gentle, caring dentist.

Gentle, patient and caring dentists to manage your dental anxiety and nervousness!

All our dentists at Verdant Dental are kind and understanding. We never judge your smile or presentation, as we know we can help you. At your first appointment, sometimes we don’t even look at your teeth! We might just sit and talk, understanding your background and what your goals might be. We often organise a bulk-billed dental xray of your jaws to get an overall assessment of things. Once we’ve got a little more information, we can have a conversation about how you’d like to fix your smile.

Dental treatment under sedation and general anaesthetic is available for extreme cases of dental phobia!

Our dentists are around 90% successful in treating anxious dental patients using our caring and calming treatment techniques. We are also fortunate to have Dr Helen Marchant from Western Special Needs Dentistry consulting at our clinic.

Helen is a registered dental specialist, and some patients require her advanced level of dental care. Dental treatment can be provided under conscious sedation (we used to call it “happy gas”!). Helen is also able to provide a range of dental treatment under a general anaesthetic.


Tim is the owner of Verdant Dental - but he'd rather spend all day playing with dogs and his Playstation. Except there's this "day job" thing where he actually enjoys talking and relating to his patients at Verdant Dental - creating healthier, happier smiles with a wonderful team to make the days fly by!
