“I once met a 10-year-old boy who was extremely afraid of going to the dentist—he wouldn’t even come into the office. It took 30 minutes for my office manager to convince this boy to come in and let me take a look at his teeth. I simply told him that I would ONLY look at his teeth and if anything hurt he could raise his hand and I would stop. That first exam showed severe dental decay and very poor oral hygiene.”
“We planned with treat him with a mild sedation to help relieve his anxiety. We finished half the needed work on the first visit. He was amazed at how easy and comfortable it was. I gradually built his trust by treating him with respect and keeping him pain free. I explained to him what I was doing at each step—allowing him to be an active participant in his own care. His confidence would grow with each visit and now he knows that coming to the dentist can be fun and pain-free!”
“He now takes very good care of his teeth and is completely cured of his “fear of the dentist” that may have followed him throughout his life.” — Dr. Jaren Jensen
