Hey :)

I know it can be scary, you're not the only one with this. It's worth going though - an hour with someone you're uncomfortable with it is a short hit, in return for healthy, pain-free teeth!x

Much love <3

Well done on going. are they going to put you to sleep to have it taken out?

I went years and years without going the dentist, I was in so much pain that I went in the end. I think it helps if you have a dentist that makes us feel calm, I liked my old dentist but the building got demolished and he has now retired, the one I am with now I don't like her one bit so I am going to find another dentist.

The Dental Phobia website has a list of dentists on their website recommended by the forum members. It might be worth checking out.
