How do I get over dental phobia?
HI i have dental phobia really badly. It’s got to the extent that i dont go to the dentist at all now, please can you help me and advise how can over come this?
Well done for making a start .
Think about what makes you want to deal with this now , and what it might be like if you manage to overcome this .
If you go to my website , www.dentistforphobics.co.uk , there is a questionnaire there that will help you pin down what the fears are .
Download it and fill it in , and take it with you to the dentist you choose .
Perhaps take someone with you for the first appointment , let the reception staff know that you are very nervous , so they can let the dentist know .
You will feel very anxious , that is normal under the circumstances , but just take one step at a time , overcome that , and gradually the extreme anxiety will settle down enough to be able to have treatment
Hope you manage to get started
