How can I find a dentist that can deal with my dental phobia?

How can I find a dentist who can deal with my phobia .My teeth are really bad last time I was there I passed out. Then I thought I had a stroke the dentist said i had gone into shock i have a real fear but have lost all of my confidence through my bad teeth i am desperate to have them done .I would be so thankful for any help you could give me,
Many thanks

Hello, well done you have made the first big step of getting help .
My first suggestion to you is to go to www.dentalfearcentral.org .
Its a website forum for people like yourself .
Theres lots of information , but also there are some recommendations from patients who have tried out some dentists and had success .
depending where you live there are some dentists on here who are interested and sympathetic to nervous patients .
You could ask your close friends or family if they know a sympathetic dentist .
Its important that you tell the dentist that you are very afraid , and it might be best to see someone gives patients a bit more time than the average .
Hope this helps
Jenny
