Came across a very useful resource pack on the VictimFocus website: https://www.victimfocus.org.uk/resources-for-professionals (scroll down a little).

There's an excellent "Your Wellbeing During Dental Appointments" form which anyone who has experienced trauma or abuse could use to let their dentist know how they feel beforehand (see attachment).

Not sure if it’s just me, but the attachment is not working. It just brings up jibberish like it is maybe a broken link? I am on my ipad so it could be a compatibility issue but not sure.

Strange, just tried again on my cell phone and it loads just fine so it must be a compatibility issue with the ipad.

It works for me, but you could try going to the link I mentioned above and then download the resource pack (it's a zip file). It contains 4 documents, and one of them is the "Your Wellbeing During Dental Appointments" form. Not sure if that would work on the iPad?

The form is brilliant. Also the poster / flyer for dental practices that is contained in the dental pack. How did you find this woman? I can't believe I haven't come across that earlier.
