Youve made a start by asking for the help you need .
Do I understand that youve tried before and not made it to the appointments ?
I suggest you just take baby steps ,
make the appointment , perhaps take someone with you to make it more likely you willl get there .
Just look on it as an opportunity to get them looked at as a first step .
tell the receptionist about your level of fear , find a dentist who really understands about dental fear and who likes doing that .
They do exist . To help you find one , look at this website , or go to dentalfearcentral.org.uk and check out dentists other people have found good .
Hope this helps
