How does your body work?
The first step to overcoming your dental anxiety is to figure out how your body and mind work in anxious situations. Knowing this information is critical to moving forward because your anxiety is not obvious to anyone but you.
Find the right dentist that can work with you
I am a firm believer that nothing good can come from a relationship without a fundamental level of trust. The problem is that as a patient, it’s extremely hard to know who to trust. Sure, we can scour the internet, read online reviews, or get referrals from friends, but in the end, how closer are you to making the right decision? How do you know who will be able to handle your unique brand of dental anxiety? The truth is that you don’t know. This is where trust and having a gut instinct come into play.
In our next post, we discuss topics to address with your dentist to begin creating a more trusting environment and learn how capable your dental provider is in treating your unique needs.
