Is it the needles?The sound of the drill? The big bill at the end of your appointment?lol Have any horror stories to tell?When I was younger I recall getting a tooth pulled.Well,all was well until the dentist says half way threw pulling the tooth"looks like the top came off, where gonna have to dig out the roots".Ever since then my nerves get shot the day before my appointment.My hands sweat and I feel nauseated.I tried wearing a headset and crank up my MP3 and gas and needles.But my mind is focused on what the dentist is doing inside my mouth.I seen a sign last week in front of a dental office that read "we cater to small children and big chickens".

I think having work done at the dentist is invasive. I don't like having someone that close to me, and I don't like how my teeth feel rearranged when my dentist is done working on them. It just doesn't feel good!

horay about dentist again;)I think everyone hates going to the dentist Even more so now fidgety. Did you hear about the young woman who had terrible toothache but was reluctant to go to the dentist because she was frightened of his drill.Eventually,however she was in so much discomfort that she decided to pluck up courage...hffhhhh good dentist.

I think the bill is what scares me the most. I am not to scared of the needles or the pain I mean I deal with it ok although at first I admit I hated it
