Why are we scared of the dentist?

About this episode

It’s fair to say that none of us are ever particularly excited to go to the dentist, but for many people, the prospect of a dental appointment can turn into a debilitating fear. So, what is dental phobia and how do we overcome it? Dr Som-Ling Leung has dedicated more than 25 years of her life to dentistry, working all over Australia and the Pacific Islands. Throughout her career, Som-Ling has seen her fair share of dental phobias, and knows first-hand the kind of health problems that they can cause. Today, she is talking to us about what causes these fears and how the dentist can actually be the person to help you conquer your phobia!

Guest: Som-Ling Leung @ Strong Island Foundation
