I have an extreme fear of dentists. I have anxiety even watching commercials for dentist offices. This of course, has led to a very poor condition of my teeth. I am filled with shame and afraid of lectures. The fear of the cost is also overwhelming to me. No one knows my secret. Most of my trouble is in the back areas. I try to call and make appointments and I never follow through. I am so scared of how I am going to be treated if I go in to the dentist. Even writing this email makes me very uncomfortable. I am a teacher and I have Health Choice Dental.
