Where Can I Find an NHS Dentist for Nervous Patients?
17th May 2016
A. You must tell your GP that you are having suicidal thoughts because of your teeth. It sounds as if this is helping you to to be anxious and very depressed. There may be a local Community Dental Service that helps people with special needs such as yours, and in particular if you are becoming agoraphobic. If you google Community Dental Service in Lancashire / Blackpool /Preston then you may find a link and get a dentist to refer you there. You should not have to wait weeks to get an appointment just for a look. You may find some help on www.dentalfearcentral.org where there are dentists who have helped others, and you don't need to go private. There must be sedation services available locally, often its in a special centre. However, having sedation means you have to have someone with you, so is there anyone you could think of that could help out at all? I hope this helps a bit, Jenny.
