Women more anxious about visit to dentist

9th December 2010

Research carried out by the Office of National Statistics found that women are twice as likely to suffer extreme anxiety when visiting a dentist compared to men.

The study found 19% of women suffered extreme anxiety in the waiting room compared to 10% of men in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The ONS also found that overall, dental health had improved across all three countries but a greater percentage of the Welsh population have no natural teeth and higher levels of tooth decay.
