There are some people in the United Kingdom that would rather encounter a snake or spider than visit then dentist.
A recent study discovered these results. More than half of adults, particularly women, had anywhere from moderate to extreme dental anxiety.
The study was created after people were given a list of things that make people nervous. The list included flying, heights, doctors, injections, snakes, spiders, going to the hospital and visiting the dentist. More than one out of five people said visiting the dentist was the thing that made them most nervous.
