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.
