Defeat Dental Fear

Grow Your Practice with New Skills to Conquer Dental Fear


Train Your Team To Defeat Dental Fear And Grow A Thriving Practice

The Defeat Dental Fear Program grows your practice with a team-focused approach that conquers dental fear with every anxious patient.

As a dentist, you deal with nervous patients every day. According to the NHS, 25% of Brits dread dental procedures, and up to 12% suffer from extreme odontophobia.

Dental Fear impacts every aspect of the run of the practice. The disruptive behaviour caused by dental phobia creates a stressful work environment and reduces productivity which inflates running costs. Patients avoid treatments until emergencies arise, creating a vicious cycle that hurts patients and stalls your profits.


Dental anxiety comes in many shapes and forms.  Many affluent professionals do not seek dental work until they can wait no longer.  Attract these clients with our simple system.

Repeat Custom

Once you have successfully attracted these patients and won their trust with the Defeat Dental Fear system, it is easier to turn them into repeat clients, visiting your practice regularly.

Happier Workplace

With a simple to implement system at your fingertips, not only will your patients be happier, your staff will enjoy their workplace more too.  Staff morale is an enormous side-benefit to a relaxed patient clinic.


The Simple Process to Defeat Dental Fear For Good

Using a 3 Pillar and 9 Step framework, you’ll discover how to reduce your patient’s fear on their journey from first contact to after-care. This program prepares your team to better manage frightened patients, creating a calming dentistry culture for your team and your patients.

Over the course of one day, you’ll gain a new understanding of the fearful patient’s internal world, and learn intervention techniques so they feel safe, supported, and confident. Equipped with new skills, your team will produce healthier smiles and improve lives. With The Defeat Dental Fear Program, you’ll grow your practice with glowing testimonials and become the go-to Medical Hub for dental fear intervention in your area.
