Are you afraid to go to the dentist? If so, you aren't alone. I was one of those who were right there with you. In fact, I didn't go to the dentist for over nine years. Not until one of my teeth broke, and I was in so much pain that I was forced to make an appointment. My name is Jane Greenfield. I’m 49 years old, and my memories of the dentist were those of horrible noises and pain. I have had a few dental appointments since that broken tooth. I want to share my experiences with you, because things have changed and honestly, there is no reason to fear the dentist! Things such as sedation dentistry, updated technology, and new techniques have changed the way things are done. If I can go to the dentist without having a panic attack, you can too.
