I do not remember knowing anyone who feels excited that he or she is going to the dentist. Practically no one wants to see their dentist and would have tried to avoid any circumstances that would require them to do so. We have been raised to fear dental consultations, with the pain or discomfort that we might feel during a procedure, maybe because we only get to visit them when we already have a dental problem. Even signing an appointment form is difficult for us to do because we do not know when we will be able to allot time for a dental visit in between our busy schedules. Let us try to educate our young to have a wellness check-up with their dentist so that we eliminate that fear and not pass it to our children. Here is how to make a dental appointment efficient and worthwhile.
