Why are some people so afraid of going to the dentist?
I've never understood this.

I had a cracked molar extracted yesterday, and frankly, the places he injected the anaesthetic hurt more than where the tooth used to be does.

I'd always assumed that fear of the dentist was down to something I'd never experienced myself, like getting a tooth yanked, but I'm still none the wiser?
