Travis singer Fran Healy refused to visit the dentist for 18 years - because a simple childhood check-up left him with a permanent scar. The 34-year-old Scottish star developed a phobia of the dentist's chair as a young boy after a procedure he underwent accidentally resulted in a laceration on his face. He says, "I had a bad experience as a kid. I was maybe two or three or four. The dentist was pulling out a tooth and pulled off a bit of my upper lip as well, enough to leave a small scar. "The amount of blood was outrageous. I've feared the dental chair ever since."
