Choosing the right dentist is important for every patient, but for those who are particularly nervous or who have dental phobias it is vital that you have confidence and trust in the dentist who is treating you.
It is important that dental sedation is carried out under supervision by a specially trained dentist. The sedationist at Frays Dental Sedation and Anxiety Centre Dr Gunjan Aggarwal, has postgraduate qualifications in sedation from the well respected Eastman Dental Institute and has experience in using all the sedation techniques we provide.

Prior to carrying out any dental treatment under sedation all patients must have a consultation with Dr Aggarwal who will review the relevant medical history, ensuring the appropriateness of Conscious Sedation and explaining the procedure. She will happily answer any questions you may have and will spend as much time as necessary to ensure you are completely happy before any procedure is started.
Dr Aggarwal obtained her dental qualification in 1997 in India, and worked for 2 years in a dental hospital. After coming to the UK she completed the Statutory Examination from Leeds Dental Institute and has been registered with the GDC since 2002.
Since then Dr Aggarwal has managed and treated patients in all the aspects of general dentistry. She has a keen interest in remaining up-to-date in clinical and management techniques and believes in the philosophy of prevention and minimally invasive dentistry.
Dr Aggarwal was personally involved in helping a family member who was extremely nervous, prior to referring for dental treatment. This led to her attaining a Post Graduate Qualification in Dental Sedation and Pain Management from the UCL Eastman Dental Institute.
“I understand that very often dental anxiety and phobia is a result of one’s previous dental experience.”
I have a strong belief that it is not difficult to gradually wean patients out of Conscious Sedation needs through empathy, patience and building their confidence. I work as a dedicated sedationist/dentist and have managed to achieve very successful results with my patients offering them all forms of dental treatment under Conscious Sedation.
