The Wand – dentistry WITHOUT the injection
Recognising that many people are anxious about injections, we can undertake much dental work without using a traditional injection syringe. This is thanks to a technologically advanced device we've bought called The Wand which enables us to numb a tooth in a more comfortable way without needing to use a traditional injection (£12.50 charge applies). We believe we are the only dental practice in Hertford to offer its patients this more comfortable alternative to a dental injection.
