My 7 year daughter has a major fear of the dentist, but has an ongoing abscess which she has had antibiotics for. I am aware that this is not going to resolve itself and when I mentioned it to the dentist, she simply said she would need a referral to the community dentist team for extraction. Unfortunately my daughter overheard this and as expected, freaked! I am at a complete loss what to do. If I even mention dentist to her she starts crying, how I would even get her to the community team doesn't bear thinking about, let alone extraction!!
