Tears & Fears
Posted on 10/8/2015 by Fariba Mutschler
As a pediatric dentist, I specialize in children and special needs patients. Nevertheless, a large part of my job is overcoming parental fears.

Parents have an incredible influence on their children; both positively and negatively.

Kids are so tuned into parental non-verbal communication that even if a mother does not say anything negative about an upcoming dental visit, their own worries and fears will cause their child to worry too.

A clinging two year old is expected. A tearful eight year old is a challenge. A fearful 28 year old mother is very hard to overcome.

One of the best ways to help your child prepare for a dental visit is to ask yourself if you have fears yourself. If you do, perhaps your spouse may be a better choice for the first dental exam.

We pride ourselves on getting kids to have a reasonably good time and once they come and see all the fun stuff we do, they will feel better coming back.
