Hello , I have been lurking for a while in the hope of getting advice and support. I've been terrified of the dentist since I was a child - my parents were petrified too and it rubbed off on me. 12 years ago, I screwed up my courage and paid for private treatment under IV sedation, and was able to get my teeth in good order, but this used up all my available funds. All I could afford since then has been checkups and small fillings. Now I have savings once more, and would like to ask: How is your experience of dentistry in the UK at the moment? Is it safe? I ask this as I have severe health anxiety which has been ramped up to the absolute heights with the pandemic, leaving me agoraphobic and afraid to leave the house.
