When you have anxiety, it can often feel as though no place is safe. It can feel overwhelming, the simple thought of just taking one step out into the outside world, because at any moment you could be faced with one of your triggers. But things are a little different when you have an anxiety whose trigger is incredibly specific, one that if you are careful, you can avoid. That is exactly the situation that many people who have dental anxiety are in; they believe that as long as they take care, they should be able to go through the majority of their life without having to even think about the possibility of seeing a dentist. But all of those changes if you go on vacation, and then you suddenly have an accident – you are fine, but your teeth are not. It’s time to find an emergency dentist, and soon. And the panic begins.
We want to make sure that everyone who comes to Qatar is happy, and has an amazing time, and that extends even in the unlikely possibility that you may need to see an emergency dentist in your time here. If you have dental anxiety, we know that this thought may seem completely incomprehensible to you, and you may want to wait until you get back home to see a dentist because even though the thought of seeing one makes you fearful, you still want the security of seeing one at home. However, when we spoke to eminent dentist Dr Paige Woods (known for her painless filling treatments), she warned us that in the majority of cases when it came to a person who needs to see a dentist, the sooner is always the better. In some cases, it can mean the difference between saving a tooth and losing a tooth.
That is why we would encourage you to seek out a dentist right here in Qatar, one of the leaders in medical technology, so that we can help you before it is too late. If you would prefer it, you can easily speak to your consulate or embassy, and they will be able to put you in touch with an emergency dentist that is not only based in Qatar, but is one that they trust. Being able to trust a dentist when you are abroad is often very different for people who do not suffer from dental anxiety, and so we cannot imagine just how overwhelming it must be for someone whose very instincts are telling them that to go to the dentist is the worst idea in the world.
However, Qatar emergency dentists will receive the same sort of training and education that emergency dentists do all around the world, including dentists such as Dr Paige Woods. They are able to offer the same high standard of care and treatment as any other, and will be naturally sympathetic to a tourist who needs a little helping hand whilst they are on their vacation. We would always recommend that you explain to the emergency dentist and their staff that you have severe dental anxiety, because they will be able to make changes in the way that they proceed, working with you and allowing you to stop the treatment or procedure at any time, if you feel uncomfortable.
The most important thing is your health, and we know that you have the same priority – and that you want to be able to get back to your amazing holiday in Qatar! There is so much to see and do here that it would be a shame to just go home so that you can see a dentist at home. By learning to trust a dentist abroad, you may even find that it helps with your dental anxiety.
