Hello – i am not sure if you answer questions from Scotland, i couldn’t find a Scottish reference. i am not sure how i even go about starting to get over my phobia, i even feel ill typing this message. I have not been to the dentist for a great many years, as with a number of people i had a terrible childhood experience and now it has got to the stage where my teeth are a disgrace, i think they need to all come out. I haven’t smiled for over 10 years i don’t think. What do i do? i am sorry for rambling, i just need help. thank you
hello I answer questions form anyone anywhere ! dental phobia is universal .
You obviously now have had the courage to seek help .
There are a couple of dentists who I know have a serious interest in helping dental phobics in Scotland .
If you google Fraser Hendrie , Edinburgh , Mike Gow , Glasgow .
If you choose a dentist who has empathy with people like you , then book a consultation then thats a start .
See it through and find out what your options are , perhaps take a chosen friend of family person with you for support .
You will never regret getting yourself sorted out .
