News In Focus “Face Your Fear” Air Date: Thursday 1st December 6-7pm with Craig Priest

From Spiders and confined spaces, to heights and clowns – we’re all afraid of something. This week’s News In Focus explores fears, and in particular, a fear of dentists – as we follow the journey of one patient from the waiting room to the treatment chair, to find out if going to the dentist really is something to be afraid of.

Staff at Titchfield Dental Clinic, talk us through a treatment, whilst they also give their views on if dentists are something to be scared off.

Lourens du Toit, a dental surgeon at the Clinic, said “We are constantly taking on new patients, so dental phobia is still a reality unfortunately – but I think patients tend to focus on preventative care now. I think most of us know the basics but like with anything, we’re all taught by our parents how to brush our teeth but they’re not necessarily knowledge on the subject.”

Also on this week’s program, we’ll find out how a charity encourages people to face up to their fears, by encouraging them to try something daring whilst raising money for the cause.

Mansfield 103.2 would like to extend our thanks to Titchfield Dental Clinic, for allowing us to go behind the scenes in order to make this weeks program.

News In Focus returns this Thursday (1st December), just after the 6pm news, with Craig Priest in for Matt Freeman and previous episodes can be heard by logging onto our website at www.mansfield103.co.uk
