Anxiety Dentist

Let an experienced anxiety dentist help you!

Fear of the dentist? Let an experienced anxiety dentist help you!

Rest assured, fear of the dentist is very common. A visit to the dentist is not the most favorite activity for many. Still, some people have avoided the dentist for years because they fear treatments, pain, judgment, etc. We call this phenomenon dental phobia or dentophobia.


Not going to the dentist causes problems. Without good personal hygiene and a check-up every half year, your teeth deteriorate. Fear of the dentist is often caused by fear of pain, bad experiences in the past, or shame for your teeth. Whatever the reason, we take this fear very seriously. To make your visit to the dentist a little easier and help you overcome this fear, CDC has an anxiety dentist.

What can an anxiety dentist do for you?

You care for your teeth well because you want to postpone the visit to the dentist as long as possible. Yet, you know teeth deteriorate over time. Unfortunately, you cannot escape a visit to the dentist, but the thought alone gives you a stomachache. You are certainly not alone. Did you know a quarter of all Dutch people are afraid of the dentist? This anxiety probably bothers you because you want healthy and beautiful teeth. If you suffer from toothache, gum problems, or other problems already, it is likely, you do not want it to get worse.


We want everyone to have beautiful and healthy teeth. Therefore, we make every visit to our clinic as pleasant as possible, even for those afraid of the dentist. CDC was one of the first clinics in the Netherlands to introduce the anxiety dentist. And with success! For more than 20 years, people from all over the Netherlands have been coming to Best, especially for the anxiety dentist. You can also visit our anxiety dentist for all treatments.

Difference between a regular dentist and an anxiety dentist?

We gladly explain the difference between a regular dentist and an anxiety dentist, so you know what to expect when you make an appointment with our clinic.


The anxiety dentist listens to your story and your wishes.

The anxiety dentist takes the time to explain everything elaborately. We also check whether we understand each other well. We listen to your wishes closely. Then, together, we look at how we can proceed with a diagnosis and treatments and discuss what you need for this. Finally, we include well-founded dental treatment advice.


The anxiety dentist puts you at ease.

Comfort and compassion are about more than just expertise as a dental specialist. People skills are essential. Our anxiety dentist masters these skills. He or she is understanding, friendly, and very patient.


The anxiety dentist makes agreements and sticks to them.

Unfortunately, we often hear that agreements are made but are not kept elsewhere. That is NOT what an anxiety dentist does. He or she sticks to the agreements you make. For example, if you raise your hand because they have to stop, they will.


Doing dentistry differently.

Do you have a suggestion to do it differently? For example, putting on headphones or sitting upright, or bending over? Whatever request you have, the anxiety dentist will be happy to find a solution that suits your preferences. This applies to a painless treatment as well. Our anxiety dentist is an expert in anesthetics. Here too, we listen to you carefully and take you seriously. The anxiety dentist only proceeds with the treatment if you really do not feel anything anymore.

The choice between anxiety dentist or anesthesia dentist

You have the choice between an anxiety dentist and an anesthesia dentist at the CDC Clinic. Generally, for most dental treatments, anesthesia is not necessary. However, the anxiety dentist can also treat you painlessly with a local anesthetic. If experiencing the treatment 'consciously' or 'awake' is an absolute no-go, the anesthetic dentist can offer you a perfect alternative. We do everything to make it as pleasant as possible for you.


Our experience shows that after treatment under anesthesia, patients have gained more confidence in the dentist. This can also take away some of the fear. Anesthesia is often no longer necessary for the follow-up treatments by the anxiety dentist. However, if you have not yet overcome your fear, treatment under anesthesia will still be an option.

Dental problems due to dental phobia?

Have you avoided the dentist for years, believing there are no consequences for the health of your teeth? Probably not. Even though you brush and clean well, this is not enough for your teeth. Without check-ups and professional dental cleaning, problems can pile up, including:

  • Tartar and dental plaque
  • Cavities
  •  Gingivitis
  • Periodontitis
  • Loose teeth and molars

Some stories and experiences of others

“It makes a world of difference. CDC is a kind of dental care village. They even have their own anesthesia center for people who have anxiety."
“After two difficult root canal treatments under local anesthetic at my old dentist, I decided: now I'm done with it.”

“All dental experts under one roof. That's handy!" As a beautician, I think it's important that my teeth are beautiful.
