Patient anxiety

Patient anxiety

there is no need to be afraid at all

One quarter of the Dutch population feels anxious about going to the dentist. And about 500.000 Dutchmen even suffer from dental phobia. Their fear is so great that in essence they stop going to the dentist to the detriment of their teeth. In almost all cases an unpleasant dental experience is at the root of this problem.

The dentists at Van de Veer specialise in anxious patients. Through very specific relaxation exercises and careful guidance the majority of our patients has been able to overcome their anxiety.
