Dental phobias are common.

Fear of visiting the dentist is more common than you might think. I was intrigued by this article that discusses 7 common fears people may experience when faced with their annual dental check-up, dental emergencies or even just a simple cleaning. Can you guess what they are? I’ll give you a hint. Did you know the top two fears that you are born with are: fear of falling and fear of loud noises? You guessed it. Fear of loud noises is one of the seven discussed here. And last of all, this article also points out a study which proved that humor in the dental office may help lessen fear. Points for us! I would say that our fabulous DannaSmile team is not at a loss of good humor, wouldn’t you agree? Click here if you missed the link above, to read all about it. And keep on smiling that DannaSmile!
