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:
- 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.
