I have a fear of needles, will NuCalm and the Wand help me overcome my anxieties?

Hi, I am have put off going to the dentist for ages due to fear of needles. I live close to Bristol. I am willing to travel to as far as London or Birmingham. I wish to find a dentist that offers NU Calm and the Wand. I have a dental phobia. I have never had an injection before in my mouth due to needle phobia. Please help.

There are not many dentists that offer NuCalm . That is helpful for those who don’t like the noise of the drill , but Im not sure about it for needle phobia .
Is your needle phobia a generalised one ?
The wand is certainly a useful tool for helping people who are afraid of dental injections .
If you e- mail me off -site I can then give you some more suggestions where to look .
I use the wand , and I also help people with needle phobias with psychological help and or sedative techniques .
You will find my e- mail address on my website
