I was terrified of the dentist, now i'm paying the price.

I don't smile fully, because i am embarrassed by my teeth.

I have been through dental surgery twice.

I eventually used meditation/hypnotherapy techniques to overcome my fear when i am in the chair.

Of course YABU, it's a phobia - they aren't supposed to be reasonable!

But it's also common and there are NHS sedation clinics for those who just can't cope without a bit of extra support. See: www.nhs.uk/Livewell/dentalhealth/Pages/Fearofthedentist.aspx

Hope you find a way to get the care you need.
