About Dr Antonia Paolella
With over 40 years of experience working in private practice, Dr Paolella is regarded as one of the most experienced general practitioners working in the UK.
Dr Paolella’s love of dentistry means that she has kept her up to date with the latest developments in technology and technique throughout her career. She has continually invested in the newest equipment to ensure the best possible treatment for all her patients.
Although very skilled and experienced in a wide range of dental treatments, Dr Paolella’s speciality is treating patients with dental phobia. Her knowledge and caring nature when assisting anxious patients mean she can provide thorough treatment to those with complex needs arising from years of dental neglect.
Before treatment, Dr Paolella will talk you through everything that’s going to happen and discuss your anxieties. This will help you feel more at ease.
To help anxious patients further, Dr Paolella provides sedation dentistry. While sedated, you’ll remain conscious; however, you’ll feel completely relaxed. You’ll be aware of what’s happening around you, but you’ll feel at ease for the duration of your treatment.
After the sedatives have worn off, your memory of the procedure may be hazy; however, the use of sedation generally makes the experience more positive.
