Children And The Dentist
There can be various reasons why a child has developed fear for the dentist. Their own past experiences, but more often the stories they hear from other children are the cause. Or (usually) because the parents are afraid and unconsciously teach their children that going to the dentist is something to be afraid of. Children are very sensitive to their parents feelings and fears. If you have fear for the dentist, it is advised that another adult, who is not afraid, accompanies your child to the dentist.
