Just curious how many of you have come across this phrase when you tell people you are terrified/anxious/fear going to the dentist?

I know I have. Some people I have met seem to wrongly equate the too and think this is enough to get you to i) stop avoiding and go, ii) not fear it?! 😂

So... Just wondering what people’s experiences are toward how others treat their dental fear? And what they do or don’t find helpful?

Yes, I hear that a lot. They don’t seem to understand there’s a difference between not liking it and having a genuine phobia about it. I appreciate when people just acknowledge that my fear is real.
