Do you feel passionate about helping people overcome their fears? Or would you like to connect with like-minded professionals?
Here are 6 ways in which you can make a difference:
1. Spread the word
Dental Fear Central is non-profit and free of advertising. We want to bring free knowledge to the world.
This means that we don’t buy advertising on social media, or pay other websites for linking to our website. Unfortunately, this puts us at a huge disadvantage when it comes to Google search.
Please consider linking to Dental Fear Central from your website or on social media!
2. Add a listing
If you are a dentist, dental hygienist or therapist, or psychologist who genuinely enjoys helping nervous patients, let us know! We list individual clinicians, rather than dental practices.
3. Join Dental Fear Central’s forum
Our dental phobia support forum is a great way of finding out about patients’ concerns and getting a real insight into what it’s like to be suffering with dental phobia, fear or anxiety. You’re very welcome to join in the discussions, or give advice!
There’s also a private area for dental professionals only. Please contact us to gain access to the private area.
4. Join ISDAM or its Facebook group
The International Society of Dental Anxiety Management (ISDAM) is a society for healthcare professionals and students who are dedicated to helping people who suffer from dental fears and phobias. Its aim is to bring together all psychological, clinical, technological and pharmacological techniques.
ISDAM also has a private Facebook group which you can join here:
5. Be part of a DFC Professional Network
Are you passionate about helping people overcome their fears? We are currently looking for dentists who would be happy to provide advice and guidance to other dentists who want to delve deeper into this rewarding field. Ideally, you’ll have an interest in all aspects of dental anxiety management – clinical, psychological, pharmacological and technological.
The idea is that other dentists can drop you an email if they’re not too far away geographically, so they can find out about training opportunities, referral pathways, or how to embrace dental anxiety in your part of the world. If this sounds like something you’d like to do, please get in touch!
6. Join our team of volunteers
Would you like to become more involved with Dental Fear Central and its website? We always welcome professionals wanting to join our team of reviewers and advisors. All you need to do is get in touch!
