Addressing Dental Fear
Children are not born with a fear of the dental office. They do fear the unknown. By starting with good oral healthcare at home you can teach your child that the dental office is just an extension of that oral healthcare. Refrain from using the phrases “Don’t be scared” or “It won’t hurt”. Using these phrases can actually put thoughts in a child’s head that would never have occurred to them thus inciting fear. Bring your child to your dental visits so he or she can get used to the feel of the office and the staff. Feel free to bring your child in prior to his or her first visit to look around the office and meet Dr. Wilhite and his staff.
