It is estimated that approximately 75% of adults in this country suffer from dental fear. A painful and traumatic past experience is usually the culprit. Often people wait until they have a dental emergency to seek medical help, resulting in the only familiarity with a dentist being those involving invasive treatment. This never-ending cycle only reinforces their dread.

There is also stimulus. Smell of surgical gloves, the vision of a white coat, or the smell of antiseptic- all things that take our minds to a place of anxiety and fright before any procedure is even started. Between this and the perceived notion of dentists as a cold or impersonal entity, it can be a struggle to break free from fear and anxiety and find a new path to a happy healthy mouth.
