Dental Anxiety and the Dentist for Nervous Patients

Regular dental appointments are essential for maintaining good oral health, however, up to 25% of the population in the UK would rather do anything than go to the dentist. This can result in the development of gum disease, tooth decay and other oral health problems which can be totally prevented by visiting a dentist for nervous patients.
