Greenville, SC Dentist Helps Anxious Patients Receive Proper Oral Care
Dental anxiety is a lot more complex than most people would think. In fact, the University of Washington’s Dental Fears Research Clinic believes that as many as 75 percent of all adults in the country experience dental anxiety in some way or form. In an article for DentistryIQ, registered dental hygienist Carol Roszel recounts her own experience as an anxious patient. According to Roszel, it’s not so much the scary-looking devices that patients fear the most as the idea that they’re sitting powerless as the dentist carries out the procedure, making an uncomfortable experience even more stressful.
