Dentophobia - It's A Thing!

Updated: Feb 16

Simply put, dentophobia is dental anxiety. Fear of the dentist, feat of the dental office and fear of the dental situation in general. Most people that have dentophobia avoid the dentist at all costs and thus starts a vicious cycle.

By the time a patient reaches the “Symptom Driven Treatment” stage fear is compounded. The, most likely, emergency nature of this stage drives dentophobia into high gear. Don’t let symptom-driven treatment be the reason you visit the dentist.

We have many patients that have HAD a fear of the dentist and were riddled with anxiety.
