How Can I Find a Dentist Who Won’t Judge Me?
30th June 2016
A. I'm so sorry you find yourself in this way. I think the first step might be to have a look at a website called dentalfearcentral.org.uk. There you can share your fears with others in the same position.You are not alone - there are hundreds/thousands of folk out there who feel the same, but don't talk about it with others. You need to have an idea whether you will need to find an NHS dentist or a private one depending on your financial circumstances. Perhaps look for a dentist who carries out intravenous sedation, or could refer you to a clinic that does. Having the first consultation does not commit you to anything, but will give you the knowledge to make the next step. But not doing anything means that nothing can change. Embarrassment is an inner state and will be uncomfortable to overcome, but it can be overcome. Hope this helps, Jenny.
