Are you one of the many Americans that suffer from odontophobia? If you have steadily avoided the dentist for a while – maybe even for years – that answer may be yes, and you are in good company. Approximately 50% of Americans do not receive regular dental care. To narrow in on that further, 9% to 15% of all Americans avoid the dentist entirely due to fear of the dentist or their dental anxiety, also known as odontophobia.
