On Friday I visited Glasgow Dental School with my extremely anxious little boy aged 9. We have reached the dental school as he has a broken tooth that needs removed but is extremely anxious at the dentist.
On Friday he was seen by Gillian Richardson, a dentist at the dental hospital paediatric service. The way Gillian dealt with him was fantastic. She spoke to him at just the right level for a 9 year old but managed to help him to stay calm and even got a giggle out of him.
She discussed all his options with him and they agreed on a treatment plan together. He is feeling relaxed about what is around the corner and fully understands what will happen and why it will happen. When we left he said "I like that dentist" - a huge compliment from a wee lad who was previously anxious of all dentists! !
Gillian - your manner is fantastic. Thank you from a relieved Mum.
