Dental FEAR NUMBER 12-THE DENTIST
Here’s How To Overcome
Dental Fear # 12: The Dentist
If someone has a fear of a dentist in general then they’ve probably had a bad experience. Typically here, it’s the school dentists from the 60’s & 70’s who really carried out the butchered type of dentistry.
Nowadays, it’s a far cry, there are far more women in the profession. The profession has changed into a lot more patient focused and patient experience, rather than just the break down of the teeth.
It’s really improving, right from the minute they pick up the phone, the dentist, the staff, they find everything very, very pleasant.
If you have found an individual dentist that you don’t like, you don’t get on with, you don’t like the way they treat you, they are not sympathetic and don´t show any empathy, then it’s time to change your dentist.
Go back with a recommendation that someone else has given you, go to see them and you will find somebody that will treat you and that you will be comfortable to be treated with.
