How Can I Overcome My Fear of the Dentist?
11th April 2016
A. Hello. The first thing to do is to pluck up the courage to find a dentist, then ring and make an appointment. Without doing that then nothing can change. Acknowledge that you will be anxious when you do this, but it will go away when you have finished the call. The first visit will just be to have a look, and it's best to ask for that, probably having x-rays. If you don't need an extraction, then you don't have to worry about that. If you do, then you need to make the dentist aware of why you are afraid. Just take one step at a time. Hope this helps, Jenny.
