"My husband the nervous dental patient (N.S.W)."

About: New South Wales

(as a relative),

After having gone through literally years of fear and horror regarding dental appointments (even just a basic clean had him in tears) we finally found a dentist who really seemed to care and listen when my husband explained just how frightened he was.

The dentist my husband now sees appears gentle and supportive and most of all she talks him through each and every step. After only one visit he seemed to be cured of his phobia (that was a few years ago but he continues, to this day, to be a loyal patient).

No matter how many times my husband had asked his previous dentists to let him know exactly what was about to happen (down to the tiniest little thing), the dentist seemed to refused this one thing which appeared to turned him from a crying, shivering wreck to someone who will go pretty much without even coaxing from me.

A small but very important miracle I felt but why should this be so?
