Are Dental Fears Contagious?

No reason to fear the dentist

Are you afraid of the dentist? If you are, you could be teaching your child these fears too. We understand that the sights and sounds of a dental office can be a little intimidating. But when you visit the dentist, whether if it is the first time or the tenth time, your child is looking to you – Is this a safe place? A good place?

A recent study found that children of parents who are afraid of the dentist are more likely to have cavities and other oral health problems.

It’s not enough to simply tell your children to brush and floss their teeth. Parents need to be examples of good oral health, including daily home care and regular visits to the dentist.

We are here to help. We understand that visiting the dentist can be scary for people of any age. We are happy to discuss your fears before your appointment to ease your comfort (and your child’s) on the day of your appointment.

Early visits to the dentist, by the age of one, help children adjust to the sights and sounds of the dental office. Together we can we can create a positive dental experience for you and your child, helping to lay the foundation for a lifetime of beautiful and healthy teeth.
