Dentist Dr. Cam Tansey gives the thumbs up to a young patient at his Nanaimo clinic, Dover View Dental. The clinic works with patients of all ages.

Smile! Your next trip to the dentist can be this easy

Learn how the welcoming staff at Nanaimo dental clinic care for your overall well-being

If you still shiver at the thought of going to the dentist, relax. With constant updates to technology and treatment methods, your trip to the dentist is nothing like it used to be.

The new generation of dental professionals know it’s critical to first put you at ease, says Dr. Cameron Tansey with Dover View Dental in Nanaimo, who has 20-plus years of experience.

“That’s probably the most important part of dentistry,” he says. “We’ve got a lot of state-of-the-art technology here. But if people aren’t comfortable, they’re not going to to want to come in for treatments that can be in their best interest.”

Communication key to your comfort

When you feel heard and cared for at your dental clinic, it makes a difference – and you don’t want a lecture about better dental habits.

“The days where dentists told their patients ‘you need to do this because I said so’ are over with,” Dr. Tansey says. “We see everyone from young children to millennials to seniors. Some are very Internet savvy, health conscious and aware, while others still look to us for advice on what they should be doing to improve their dental health.”

With Dover View Dental offering many restoration and repair treatments to give you an effective bite and nice smile, communication is key, he adds. “We give people all the options so they can make an informed decision. We make them aware that their comfort and their health are the priority.”

Your dental health can indicate other conditions

You may not know your dental health can affect your overall well-being. Dental professionals can identify problems that can indicate or lead to such conditions as:

  • Sleep apnea
  • Snoring
  • Headaches
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease

The team at Dover View Dental has done extra training in jaw joint (TMJ) issues, which can be associated with headaches and migraines. They also work with physiotherapists and other Nanaimo practitioners to help their patients find relief.

“Our patients’ overall health is a priority in our office,” Dr. Tansey says. “We’re considering somebody’s overall well-being and trying to incorporate their dental work as part of their overall health.”

What do your friends and family say?

Many patients at Dover View Dental were referred by friends or family members. The helpful, encouraging staff do their best to make your visit a success, Dr. Tansey adds. “We’re not rushing people in and out the door; we want to make the sure the job’s done right.”
