"I am a 54yr old Dentophobic, or ..."

About: Cannock Chase Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I am a 54yr old Dentophobic, or was. I had not visited s dentist for over 25years and recently required dental work. Not being registered with a dentist my GP referred me to Cannock. I had an initial meeting with the dentist who listened to my fear without judgment and made me feel so at ease. I had the offending tooth removed yesterday morning under local anaesthetic which is a first for me, always previously being under a general. I would like to thank the dentist and the nurses and desk staff at the hospital for their kindness, understanding and professional standards which are of the highest.

Thank you all.
