I will admit it that I look forward to seeing patients who are anxious. I do it because I know that I can help them with their dental anxiety. By helping these patients overcome their dental anxiety it gives me joy. It's a s simple as that. Like any other doctor I don't have 100% success but my my patients have had exceptional reductions in their dental anxiety. As I look back to my thirty years of practice this will be how I will judge what I have done in my professional life.

Thank you so much for that Comfortdentist, sometimes its so easy to feel as an anxious patient a burden, bother , or that everyone in the office can't wait to get you out, or don't know what to do with you, its really a blessing to hear someone that looks forward to helping anxious patients and I know there are many out there but thank you for saying this I'm sure you are a great blessing to your patients as you are to us on the forum.

What lovely words to hear from a dentist! This proves how much the industry has moved on in recent years. I learnt from my recent experiences that the key to success is to be honest and open of fears concerns and past experiences; moreover, the magic bullet is finding someone you feel comfortable and happy with - the rest will most likely follow naturally. I also found looking at practice websites before making first contacts extremely useful; looking out for people that openly indicate an interest and desire to help patients with phobia and/or anxiety should prove fruitful.
