Zoe Discusses How She Is Overcoming Her Severe Dental Fear

When Zoe first visited Brightside Dental, she was shaking and in tears. This was because she was experiencing severe dental pain, but more importantly because of her severe fear of dentists. She got to the point where she couldn’t go on with years of pain in the mouth and knew that it finally needed to be dealt with.

Zoe shares her journey so far below. She initially had all dental treatment with sedation and has now progressed to being able to cope with some treatment without sedation. We are confident that we can help Zoe continue to gain confidence with her dental visits and keep reducing her fears that have built up over many years.
