Dealing with a Dental Phobia...

75% of all people are anxious about going to the dentist.

10-15% are so afraid they never go to a dentist.

The fear can be of:

  • Pain
  • Sound of the drill
  • Getting shots
  • Gagging or choking
  • Being anesthetized
  • Feeling in a helpless position in the dental chair

I have successfully treated many people who have had dental phobias with a combination of EMDR, behavior modification, stress reduction and close consultation with the dentist.
