Have you experienced sweaty palms, sleepless nights and high heart rate when thinking of visiting the dentist? Unfortunately, dental phobia is a real thing and many people prefer to avoid seeing the dentist than treat their dental issues.
Being a dental surgeon for over 20 years, Dr. Bobby Chhoker has seen it all, and in this episode of In The Chair with Dr. Bobby Chhoker, he explains the process of how to treat dental phobic patients. Derek and Julie are two dental phobic patients who have put off seeing the dentist for a very long time because they never felt comfortable to get the treatment needed, even if it meant waking up each day unhappy.
How do we treat dental phobia?
Dr. Bobby believes that every dentist needs to be able to put themselves in their patients’ shoes even for just a moment to realise what it’s like to have dental phobia, because it will help alleviate the stress and anxiety people feel towards a dentist who genuinely cares for their oral health and can provide the correct treatment they need.
