“Working in Hanover & Lucknow I have come across very friendly people, this I believe comes with working in a small town.”

If you have dental anxiety, Dr. Sahib suggests early morning appointments as they reduces the chances of you dwelling and worrying about the appointment during the day.

“Try to start with a cleaning first to build rapport & trust with your dental team and then proceed gradually to the more complex treatments. Always ask about oral conscious sedation and inform your dentist of any fear or anxiety so that the dental team will help put you at ease. Establish a STOP sign with your dental team, such as raising a hand. This method will make you feel more in control.”

Dr. Reem Salam, DDS

Dr. Salam’s attitude towards patients is to treat them as if they are part of the family, in other words, it’s always a long term relationship, so providing multiple treatment options and taking the time to explain the pros and cons of each option are paramount before finally aiding them in making an informed decision.
