Just the thought of going to the dentist can cause anxiety to some people. 40% of the UK population have some form of anxiety of seeing the dentist with around 10% avoiding treatment altogether. That’s a lot of people walking round with anxiety about seeing the dentist and possibly in need of treatment.
I’ve been a patient for more years than I care to remember. Ian was my dentist and incredibly funny man who put a scared young lady at ease, I remember Chris coming in from School as a young lad and now he’s my dentist! I really can’t thank him and all the girls enough for looking after a now older but no less scared lady.
Kathy, my hygienist is a star and I’m pleased to say that I get gold stars.
A special thank you for today to Sarah and Jo for the hand holding and to Chris for still telling me I’ve been brave when I really haven’t, I’m still cursing you though as I’m dribbling good red wine down my chin!
