firstly, thank you for your question, it shows you want to resolve the problem and that is a great start.
The thing about anxiety at the dentist is that one needs to be able to trust the dentist you see. Modern dentistry really can be comfortable and, if you agree things like ‘stop ‘signals’ you can remain in control and have regular breaks.
Where are you located? We can see if we can help with a local dentist that is gentle, kind, considerate and an expert in dealing with people with anxiety.
