    You've to be honest with your dentist about your dental fears—If your dentist knows what your fears are, he or she can explain the procedure and help you through the process. Open communication and knowledge is the key to overcoming you dental fears.

    Thank you for starting this thread and such a wonderful post.
    I am one of those people who are nervous to go to a doctor. It doesn't mean that I am afraid to share my health condition. Usually, the reason for my nervousness is that I think unnecessarily about what if something goes wrong? Like, a surgery may go wrong right? There were news that some doctor forgot his equipment inside a patient! Such things make me so nevous. I think, I should stop watching the news, lol
