Here at Lifestyle dental, we specialise in helping nervous patients overcome and manage their anxiety.

We do this by:

  • Dedicating longer appointment slots
  • Dr Majid is trained in hypnosis, and studied under Paul Mckenna and Richard Bandler
  • Intravenous sedation

What is intravenous sedation?

Intravenous sedation is when the dentist gives their patient a sedative drug before the dental procedure. It helps reduce anxiety, and many patients do not remember much of the procedure.


Who can have intravenous sedation?

Intravenous sedation is suitable for adults only. Each patient is assessed individually on a separate day before any treatment is carried out.


Will I be asleep?

Intravenous sedation does not put you to sleep. It is classed as conscious sedation, we can still talk to you, you may lose your memory of the procedure, and your anxiety levels will be extremely low. You cannot drive after the procedure.


What does this mean for you?

Having intravenous sedation means you will be able to complete treatment that you may otherwise have not been able to go through with. Our implant patients often have sedation, and it makes longer appointments more manageable.

“I recently made an appointment with Nadim for dental treatment, I was a nervous patient the whole of the people who are there put me at ease . Was easy to talk to , I had to be sedated as I was so bad and I opted for it . Nadim explained everything and ensured I was ok throughout treatment , Jenna called me a few days later to check how I was after sedation at home .They all have changed my thinking, what used to put me in to blind panic is now enjoyable and a great experience .I would recommend them to anyone they are wonderful , caring practice .Changed my life I’ll be forever grateful”

MEET DR. NADIM MAJID & THE LIFESTYLE DENTAL TEAM

Dr. Nadim Majid qualified from Liverpool Dental school in 2001 and since then has worked in Lancashire for a number of years. He decided to undertake a career in dentistry as he found it was a good mix of science and art and also gave him the ability to help people and make a difference for them.

This really hit home when he worked in a nursing home for a short time and actually saw the impact upon the health and well being of patients whom had lost their teeth the impact was significant on the general health and well being and this is something Dr. Majid wanted to make sure he helped others avoid.

Dr. Majid is trained in hypnosis, sedation for nervous people, dental implants as well as braces. He lives in Lancashire with his two children (twins) and his wife who is a teacher. Dr. Majid has always and will continue to be focused on producing top quality services that his patients have come to expect and appreciate.
