Where do you start when trying to help a dental phobia patient?

Hello Dr Simon. I am 19 and have suffered for long enough as far as im concerned. I am going to dedicate my upcoming project at Uni into looking at ways to treat/aid dental phobia patients. This subject is very close to my heart as i myself suffer dental phobia. I would like an idea from yourself as to how to begin to get over dental phobia. how would you determine what action to take and where would you start, is there a common class/routine/,method etc that I can get involved in to help myself before trying to then help others? thanks Dr

That’s a tough question as there are many ways to approach let alone resolve any underlying problems, whereby sometimes the problem is so simple and easily dealt with. Please visit my website www.sndentist.co.uk and you can download an ebook about possible solutions to help overcome dental phobia – this will give an overview.
You should then be able to find further info by searching the web.

Good luck with your project.

Dr Simon Nery
