Why Am I Anxious in the Dental Office?

 
Chapter: How Dentists Help Anxious Children

Some children are anxious because they are visiting the dentist's office for the first time. This experience into the unknown is a common reason for nervousness. The dentist or a member of his or her staff will talk directly with the child to make him or her more comfortable. Ask your dentist to take your child on a tour of the office, explaining various equipment along the way. For young children, especially those under 3 years, a parent or relative may accompany the child throughout the procedure. Older children are encouraged to show independence.
