Fear or respect of going to the dentist is nothing unusual. Many people find a visit to the dentist stressful and tend to tense up or even feel anxiety. This is totally normal: the mouth is a very sensitive and intimate area. It is not uncommon to feel vulnerable and unable to deal with the experience of having a stranger examine the inside of your mouth and teeth with sharp or metallic objects. The embarrassment about the state of one’s own teeth can also produce a feeling of discomfort and make it more difficult to attend a dental appointment, even when it is urgently needed.
To give you the opportunity to get to know us and our special approach to anxiety patients, we offer you a consultation and a get-to-know-meeting especially for this purpose.
