Over 20 percent of people have significant dental fear. It makes you avoid going to the dentist. It makes your oral health and overall health worse. It’s stressful.
Fortunately, dozens of research studies have shown that short interventions can reduce or eliminate dental fear. Unfortunately, these treatments are available only in a few specialty clinics around the world, so almost no one benefits.
Dental FearLess brings these tested tools to your smartphone. You tell it what you fear about going to the dentist. It then personalizes treatment to your needs. You’ll learn how to manage what you do, think, and feel at the dentist to reduce your fear. You’ll be shown proven tips and strategies, and you’ll practice them.
By spending only 1 to 1.5 hours with Dental FearLess before your next dental visit, you’ll be ready to test whether YOU feel less fear at the dentist. And, best of all, it’s free.
