Here at Maycroft Dental Practice, we appreciate how difficult it can be taking the first steps in tackling dental fears and phobias.
Our Team of professionals pride themselves on making the whole process and experience as easy as possible.
You may have come across news stories which imply that dental phobia is more common among women.
For example, the 2009 Adult Dental Health Survey in the U.K. reported that women are twice as likely as men to experience extreme dental anxiety. But… all this means is that women are more likely to admit to their fears!
Anyone can be affected by dental phobia! It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, a man or a woman, rich or poor.
In reality, it is likely that there is no significant difference between men and women when it comes to dental anxiety.
Fear of dentistry is probably more common that you may have realised. The British Dental Association stated a few years ago that ‘one adult in three has moderate to severe fear of dental procedures’.
Our approach is to always focus on the positives and look forward to what can be done to improve your dental situation.
We have a huge amount of respect for every single person who visits the practice to discuss how their fears can be overcome. We understand that trust must be earned.
All of us here at Maycroft Dental Practice look forward to working hard to prove to you that we are worthy of your trust.
