How long has it been since your last dental appointment? Has it been a year or more? As time goes on, have you found yourself becoming more and more nervous about making another appointment? For some people, it is a dental phobia that keeps them from seeking the dental care they really need. For others, it is a concern about the high prices at private dental practices that prevents them from seeking consistent general dentistry care. For you, it may be some combination of both of these that has you considering a teaching dental clinic and wondering if this may be the option for you.
Whether you have avoided necessary treatment due to fear, finances, or just a general discomfort with traditional dentistry, you are not alone.
