Hi, I was always a little frightened of the dentist but I had a lovely dentist for years and he really cured me, he spoke to me during the treatments told me exactly what was happening etc and he was just fantastic. I found out that he was leaving a few months ago and was told that the new dentist would take care of me but when I went for a check up last week he was very blunt and he’s made me very frightened of going to the dentist again. He said I needed a filling so I have to go back for it but I’m suddenly petrified again, I’m not a confrontational person so I don’t know what to do about this irrational fear. Please help me with some advice, I really don’t know what to do. Thanks.
