In brief: Yes but

Yes but only if your dentists prescribes it and is aware you are taking it.

In brief: It may be helpful...

Chlordiazepoxide and other calming medications are useful when taken prior to stressful situations.
The caveat is that the medication was prescribed for you, and you are taking it according to your doctor's instructions so you don't experience undue sedation. You should also inform your dentist so that he may implement his treatment in a way that doesn't negatively interact with your medication.
