Well, if your abuse was from someone of the opposite sex, you should probably consider going to a Doctor Who is the same sex (that is, if you're a woman, go to a woman gynecologist). You should also tell the doctor about your past experience (you don't need to go into detail) and you should also insist that a nurse (or even a friend, if that's okay) be in the room with you. They don't need to observe. They just need to be there.

There are some individuals who have medical issues that require them to be in a hospital for dental procedures. This is also true for patients who are mentally unable to tolerate dental work without being put to sleep. This does not mean that a hospital will routinely do dental procedures for patients who happened to be in the hospital for medical reasons unrelated to dentistry. Can they? Yes. Will they? that's another question. ;) Wisdom teeth can be removed in hospitals by dentists in a few cases yes.
