How Can I Get Over My Dental Phobia?
7th October 2016
A. Hello. It's not uncommon for people with dental fear to go when in pain, then opt out of further treatment when the pain goes. I'm not sure where you live, but you might seek some help from the dental telephone counsellor at Anxiety UK (see website). In London there is a service for this at Guys Hospital, where dental phobics can get psychological help with their phobia. Your doctor may be able to refer you to a psychologist for help to get through the initial anxiety and panic feelings about returning. Hope this helps, Jenny.
