Dear Mrs Pinder,
I am doing a project on Denta phobias and what can be done to help patients overcome them.
I have seen that you have expertise in this certain area.
If it isn’t too much trouble i was wondering if you could provide some information for a few questions i have.
If a patient has a particularly bad phobia and won’t attend their appointments even if they needed work doing(filling), what do you do in this situation?
What training is needed to be certified in dental phobia?
Do you treat a lot of patients that have been refered as they have been untreatable elsewhere?
What are the steps you go through to understand a persons phobia and how severe it is?
Are there ways in which you can help patients overcome their fears or is sedation normally the way in which patients are treated?
Thankyou very much
