I am worried about visiting my new dentist, what should I expect?

I chipped my tooth today and so I’m going to the dentist in two days.

The last time I went to the dentist, I had a tooth taken out and it all went smoothly.

However, this time I will be going to a new dentist and I’m worried that they will not be as gentle as my old one was.
I had finally found a dentist that made me feel at ease and now I’m worried that this new dentist will make this experience unpleasant.

What should I expect?

Its always difficult to go to a new person when you like the last one .
Give the new one a chance , explain that you are apprehensive , just take it a step at a time . see what they have to say , and if you feel confident let them do work for you .
If you dont feel right , then say you will make another appointment to have the work then decide if you want that person to treat you .
You dont have any control over a person that you have never met yet .
I hope it works out for you
