Universities team up to tackle dental phobia


Researchers from West Virginia University, Indiana University, WVU-Charleston, and the University of Charleston are teaming up to address dental phobia and avoidance. This is a new collaboration for the West Virginia Clinical and Translational Science Institute and the Indiana Clinical and Translational Science Institute, which have been awarded $50,000 for the joint partnership pilot project. Funding will support the design of a clinical trial focused on using a combination of psychologically based exposure therapy and a medication, D-cycloserine, that enhances learning to reduce the fear experienced by some patients when visiting the dentist, according to WVU.
