Johannesburg, 18 September 2018 – Fear of the dentist is known as odontophobia, dentophobia, or more casually as dental anxiety. As dental professionals, and not mental health professionals, our focus isn’t as much on why people are afraid of the dentist, but instead on what we can do for those who are, so that they can receive compassionate and effective treatment.
It is important to remember that some studies estimate up to 75% of dental patients experience mild to severe dental fear. So it’s actually more likely for a person to be uncomfortable with the idea of being in a dentist’s chair than not.
At Dentsply Sirona, we are focused on empowering dental professionals to provide better, safer, faster dental care. We work with dentists to envision what‘s possible and provide innovative solutions to achieve it. Education and support help move each procedure forward, ensuring the benefits of our innovations are realised. Everything we do is about helping dental professionals deliver the best possible dental care, for the benefit of their patients and practices – today and for years to come.
