In a way you have answered your own question .
Each person has different problems , different things they are afraid of . The answer for each person should be tailored to their personal needs .
Finding out what treatment you need is essential so that you can find out what might be involved .
It sounds as if the anxiety about waiting for the dentist is a problem , and you feel like a small child again with an authority figure .
Actually you are a customer , and therefore are on equal terms with the dental staff . You should try and have the courage to tell them how you feel , and ask questions .
Sometimes too much information about stuff that doesn’t apply to you is not helpful
