Statistics show that 75% of adults suffer from some form of dental phobia or anxiety from that looming dental appointment written in red on the calendar.
If your one of these people and live in the UK then check out Smilepod.
They are a walk in dental hygienist with 24 hour online booking. They pride themselves on taking the anxiety out of a dental appointments and putting your tooth demons to rest.
I have major dentist phobia, up until a few years ago I had avoided the dentist for six years!
The four walk-in Smilepods are in London and located at Bank, Covent Garden, Soho and Canary
Wharf and feel more like a trendy spa rather than a sterile dentist.
Services and prices are listed on the walls so there are no nasty shocks at the end of the appointment.
Consultations for most treatments are also free. Their website is very informative and also breaks down the costs and treatments to put your mind at rest.

I will be keeping you updated on my Invisalign Journey on the blog and also on our second channel PixiwooMadness
