Gone are the Days of the "Scary Dentist"

Posted on 10/25/2018 by Lindsey A. Robinson DDS Office
Gone are the Days of the 'Scary Dentist”Admit it, you are a little afraid of the dentist. Well, maybe not the dentist, maybe it's just the office or dental work that gets you a little worked up.

How many times can you honestly say that you have read a tweet that has (un-ironically) proclaimed enthusiasm at being at the dentist office? Where does this fear of the dentist come from?

Why are we so worked up about it? How can you make it not so bad for your kids?

We Remember What it was Like

You remember what it was like growing up. Things were savage and unrefined compared to today. Alright, that may be a bit of a stretch, but honestly thing have really come a long way in the realm of dentistry over the past 20 to 30 years. So many technologies have emerged that have made it much easier to keep patients very comfortable while providing them with top notch results.

Pediatric Dentistry

As a kid it can be rough heading into clinical settings. This is something we at take very seriously. We want to make sure that as soon as a child enters our practice, they feel welcome and comfortable. We have transformed our waiting room into one that any child would adore and our staff are kind and helpful.

We are Passionate About Your Kids Oral Health

By providing a welcoming setting and giving your kids the respect that they deserve to receive, we hope to put a stop to "dental horror” before it even has a chance to start.

Things you can do to quell you kids fears are pretty simple. Mostly it's just a matter of being mindful about your choice of words before coming to our office. If you use a phrase like, "Everything will be alright” or "It's not going to hurt” there is some implied uncertainty there. The hint that things could go wrong, or might hurt is usually enough to give a hint to a child. Stay vague, and positive.
