Conquer your Dental Phobia

Sep 03, 2014

Posted by : Dr. Atif Rizvi

Phobia: a marked and persistent fear of a clearly defined object or situation.
In this case, fear of dentistry and of receiving dental care. People may go through great lengths to avoid being confronted by their fears or phobias. It may be similar to post-traumatic stress caused by previous traumatic dental experiences. As a dentist in Minnetonka, Dr. Rizvi is very sensitive to these feelings.
