Well I am headed to the dentist again tomorrow, for I think my 6th time in the last couple months. Needless to say I am getting over my fear. But she is the only dentist I will go to, her reciptionist called once, saying she had to reschedule, and if I wanted to see her college, or wait for her. I decided to wait.
I think once you find a GOOD dentist, it is easier to get over your fear.
