Did you know that up to three-fourths of Americans have experienced some kind of fear or anxiety about going to the dentist? It’s pretty common to be scared of going to the dentist and to put off regular check-ups until you absolutely need it. No one likes to be in pain, and nobody wants to pay for a service that causes pain, even if it’s temporary. What if we told you that you didn’t have to be scared of the dentist anymore?

At Dr. Henry Ward’s family dental practice, we pride ourselves on providing gentle dentistry that prioritises your comfort, understanding, and happiness first and foremost. Our patients are always treated with kindness, thoughtfulness and professionalism that puts your anxieties at ease.

What is Gentle Dentistry all About?

Gentle dentistry involves building a practice that puts the patient’s needs, understanding and comfort first. We explain every step of each procedure to patients with kindness and compassion, create talking points to ensure we build a strong patient-practice relationship with you from day one.

Dentistry doesn’t have to be a stressful, painful experience. From the moment you walk into our practice you will be treated with kindness and respect. We make sure every action from simply looking into the mouth to any agreed procedures are understood and clearly explained to you. In fact, your comfort is so important to us, that we even offer dental sedation to reduce discomfort or stress if needed.

Why Does Gentle Dentistry Matter?

Dental pain and problems are bad enough. You can feel uncomfortable, uneasy and stressed when they first occur. Gentle dentistry matters because it makes sure that practitioners always have a genuine concern in helping you at every stage of the process. From booking an appointment, to speaking with staff, to when you are sitting in the chair, gentle dentistry makes sure that every interaction you have is kind, respectful and compassionate.

Going to the dentist doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. Gentle dentistry makes sure of that.

What Our Patients Say

Since having my first traumatic experience as a 9 year old with an army dentist I was always anxious about going to the dentist; my muscles would get tense, and I would grip the arms of the dentist chair, anticipating the worst.
But what a difference Dr. Ward has made in my previously harrowing experiences with dentists. With her calm caring manner and soothing touch, I actually became more relaxed in the dentist chair. What a relief!

Then as a bonus, there are times she would softly hum a tune which even makes me more calm, like a mother soothing an anxious baby – I guess I must have been a big baby when it came to dentists, but not anymore! Thank God for Dr. Ward! And her friendly staff aren’t too bad either.

Very gentle, very competent. I am very appreciative of your skill and skill of your staff. Thanks.

Shawna Silva

Beginning in 1995 Dr. Ward took over my dental care. She has proven to be as painless as I believe possible. My bridges have performed perfectly. My extractions have been very few, and my partial is working without incident. I recommend that anyone needing dental work consider using Dr. Ward.

Rudolph Hughes

One day during my morning prayer and meditation I had to look up the word honorable. The word is rich in meaning and implies the purest, highest, noblest kind of goodness. Honorable means “lovely”, “winsome”, “gracious”, “noble” and “excellent’. Your name, Winsome, definitely describes your character and your practice. God bless and keep you!!!

Dr. Ward, I want you to know how much I appreciate the care I have received here. I am so happy with the improvement in my gums, and it is because of your emphasis on preventive oral care. It has made a huge difference, and I thank you.
