How do I get over the fear of going to the Dentist?

Report as

I'm not exactly scared to go to the dentist, but, I take a sedative, just to make me ever such a tad less uptight.

When I got my eyes fixed...they mentioned that I could get something for my nerves, but then said it was not available at this location...the other location only. I was so nervous, that after it was done...I burst out crying! My Dad and then bf thought something bad happened to me. haha Being nervous is sooo annoying. >:/

normally the only way to get rid of a fear is by doing it and handling it yourself

believe it or not it helps to actually get mad at your dentist. think of it as going to battle. you are better than him and not the other way around. this will give you more confidence so you don't feel as overwhelmed and intimidated
