We’re COVID SECURE and continue to welcome new and existing patients to the practice...

Following the lifting of restrictions from 19th July, the safety of our patients, team and community continues to be our priority. We are therefore maintaining our existing safety measures.

Masks should continue to be worn in our practice by both patients and colleagues. Social distancing, along with all previous safety measures, also remains in place.

Nervous patients

Whatever your negative dental experiences, with our help you can leave your fears where they belong: in the past. With refined care and expertise we’ve been helping patients throughout Lewes, Ringmer and Brighton manage their fear of the dentist for many years - we can do it for you too.

It’s important that you look after your oral health. Your lifestyle, psychological well-being and dental health depend on it. If you continue to avoid the dentist, this can lead to severe, perhaps irreversible, damage.

So, take the first step. Work with us. Tell us everything. In detail. We understand the panic. The sweaty palms. The rumbling tum. The unsteady legs. The tears. We also know how to ease these symptoms. As your confidence grows, they will disappear for good.

If you need some extra help to deal with your dental anxiety, we can also offer dental sedation. With safe and proven techniques, patients receive sedative drugs which work rapidly to create a relaxed state that is maintained and monitored throughout treatment. Sedation patients often tell us they have little or no memory of their dental experience.

No pressure—you are in control

What does and doesn’t happen is up to you. You do not have to do anything out of your comfort zone.

Why not start with driving by St Anne's Dental Practice. You don’t have to do any more than this for starters. We have a beautiful practice with a calm, friendly, family vibe, which you will discover if you come in and say hello. Why not bring a friend or a family member?

We are happy to chat

This is your chance to tell us why the dentist gives you the heebie-jeebies—we will understand. Sit down and have a cuppa or two on the house.

Our staff are happy to discuss your concerns. We are trained, qualified and experienced in dental phobias. If this is enough, leave and have a think.

Meet the team—tour the premises

If you are ready for the next step, you can meet the St Anne's Dental Practice team. All of us. Putting faces to names can help to break down barriers. As does understanding our systems and processes, our treatments and technology.

You get to know us. We get to know you. Have a guided tour of the building. Ask as many questions as you like.

Choose your dentist

Getting to know you means we get to play matchmaker. Partnering you with the dentist we feel is the most sympathetic to your personality and individual requirements. But, if you have a preference, we are happy to oblige!

Your first dental health assessment

Comfy chair, feet up, music in the background. We are happy to tailor the tunes to your taste. Or you can bring your own music and headphones and zone out to your favourites while we check your dental health. It doesn’t take long and is painless. We can stop at any time if you need a break.

Your first dental treatment

This can be as simple and pain-free as polishing your teeth or a sealant filling. You won’t feel a thing and will walk tall when we’ve finished. And don’t forget the music!

If you need a course of treatments, we plan these close together. This means you don’t have the time to fret and undo all the good work that has got you this far.

Dental sedation

If you still need some extra help to relax before sitting in the chair, we may suggest dental sedation. On administering sedation you will slowly begin to feel more relaxed and sleepy. Some patients describe this as a dream like state. Once your dentist is satisfied that you are adequately sedated, they will begin treatment.

After sedation treatment you may experience memory loss that may last several hours. This will mean that you probably won’t remember the dental work being carried out and of course means that you should not make any important decisions during this time. Most people feel a little sleepy for a few hours following sedation. With this in mind, you will be given detailed instructions on what you should and should not do for 24 hours afterwards. The vast majority of patients are fully recovered 24 hours after their sedation treatment.

Take the first step today…why not give us a call on 01273 473189 for a chat and to find out how we could help you.

We are covered by Denplan insurance and are very glad this covers regular visits to the hygienist. I have seen Chrissie for several years and remain one of her many loyal patients. She coped amazingly with PPE during the pandemic, keeping us safe. Thank you Chrissie.

Dr Brink is a very engaging, reassuring presence and I feel completely confident in her abilities.

12th May 2022

It was a positive experience from the moment I arrived. The receptionist was courteous and helpful, and the reception area felt pleasant and calm. Both my appointment with the hygienist and the dentist were on time, and during both appointments everything was explained clearly to me, and any questions I asked were answered clearly and thoroughly. It was very straightforward to book my next appointments, and I received prompt confirmation of them by text and email.

My dentist, Adam Cuthbertson, is a very competent and friendly dentist. He always explains in details the different options available and often hands me a mirror so that he can show exactly what's going to be done and why. He is friendly and courteous, as is all of the team at St Anne's Dental Clinic. By far the best dentist I have been to so far and I have been to quite a few, in the UK and abroad.
