Thousands of people all over the world are nervous about going to the dentist and suffer from some degree of dental phobia or anxiety, if you are one of them we can help. Some of the common fears are:

  • – Fear of anaesthesia
  • – Fear of choking
  • – Fear of diagnosis
  • – Fear of the drill
  • – Fear of embarrassment
  • – Fear of future dental work
  • – Fear of needles
  • – Fear of pain
  • – Fear of feeling powerless
  • – Fear of visiting the dentist

Not all dentists have the personality or time to treat anxious people. You’ll want someone who has a holistic outlook on people and who has the necessary people skills. Some dentists don’t view this as part of their job description and regard themselves as “tooth mechanics” instead. The argument tends to be that since their job is to treat teeth and gums, they can hardly be expected to be psychologists.
