Gentle injections in Hatfield

Dentistry for anxious dental patients

Dr Andrews gained her key phrase "We Cater for Cowards" based on feedback from delighted patients who have commented on how painless her injections are and how caring and compassionate the team at Distinctly Dental are.

Her flair for administering virtually painless injections has made her “something of a legend” in Hertfordshire, with delighted patients referring their family and friends to Distinctly Dental in Hatfield. We have seen many new patients who, at first, were nervous and phobic about seeing the dentist, convert to being patients that are now loyal, happy, regular attenders who feel comfortable in our dental practice and in turn, continue referring their friends and family to us.

Our team of dentists, hygienists, and dental nurses at Distinctly Dental are all trained to deliver care in a calm and non-judgemental manner. We all realise that sometimes, through fear and anxiety, patients may have let their oral health decline and as a result, they may feel embarrassed and nervous about seeing the dentist. Each one of the team have a dental qualification and are trained and equipped to answer your questions and put your mind at ease, even before your first dental appointment at Distinctly Dental.

Coupled with the care and consideration with which Dr Karen Andrews, Dr Denisa Cooper and our Distinctly Dental team treat our patients, you are assured of a visit where your dignity, comfort, needs and expectations will always be our priority.

Our Patients comments speak for themselves:

"I love my Dentist! Attentive, professional, knowledgeable - great service and expertise. I highly recommend, especially if you have a phobia of Dentists. Pain free injection for fillings!! Excellent Hygienist too. 10/10" - Carrie C
"I was absolutely terrified of the dentist. Karen was amazing. Only took me as far as I was comfortable, like laying back in the chair, without any treatment. If I was comfortable doing anything else she was so gentle, and, if I said I couldn't do any more, she immediately stopped. I never once felt an injection, and the extraction I had done, well, I didn't feel that either!!!! I cannot recommend a better dentist and her team highly enough. Thank you, ladies xx" - Susan C
"Cannot thank Karen and the team enough for their care and exceptionally high standards of treatment received. As a dedicated 'dental coward' I put my total trust in Karen and received care and compassion during my visits. She really is the best!" - Jacqueline F
"My visit to the dentist was, as always, very good. Karen and her team are always very friendly and professional and calming. The whole experience was painless, even though I am a very nervous patient." - Verified Patient
"After being fearful of the dentist, today I went to Dr Karen for the first time. What a great experience she has taken my fear away of dentists and I will now have the best gnashers in Hatfield lol :) I will continue going to her on a regular basis :)" - Shireen B
"The treatment I received from Karen and her staff was excellent. As a very nervous patient they were all very caring" - Lynn E
"Distinctly Dental always provides outstanding dentistry but Karen and her staff have been equally impressive with their approach to making the surgery safe during the era of Covid-19." - Verified Patient
"I have been going to this dentist for almost a year now with a programme of treatment for me teeth including 2 crowns 2 Ceres and filings. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and the fact Karen gave extra numbing as my teeth are so sensitive. It took almost a year to get everything done but I felt no pain for the first ever going to a dentist for this sort of treatment. Can’t thank Karen and her team enough. Would highly recommend this practice." - Verified Patient
"2 appointments at Distinctly Dental this week - hygienist and dentist. Treatments are professionally undertaken and explained, questions answered accurately. Appointments are prompt and as a fairly nervous patient I appreciate that. The surgery is spotlessly clean with state-of-the-art equipment. I noticed that all equipment used during my appointment was wiped down with anti-bacterial wipes." - Verified Patient
"Miss Andrews & her team are a first-class practice, offering the very best treatment and latest technology. Their work is always exceptional and comfort of their clients is first and foremost. They really do “cater for cowards” in a caring and professional manner. Thank you!" - Christine E
"Can't believe I enjoy going to the dentist now!" - Verified Patient
