Understanding and Managing Patients Who Fear Dentistry

The dental profession is aware that a “fear of dentistry” is one of the most common causes of prospective patients not seeking dental treatment. With this in mind, the UCL Eastman Dental Institute has designed a course to teach dental practitioners how to deal with these patients when they do appear at the surgery and how to develop a practice that is sympathetic to the needs of these people.
