A fear of going to the dentist is a real thing; many people get anxious over the thought of going to get their teeth inspected on a regular basis. Whether it’s due to a poor experience from the past, stories they’ve heard about other people or just a general fear that they can’t get over, these feelings are valid. A good Ottawa dentist will be able to put any fears to rest upon first meeting them.
An author (and a young one at that!) has taken it upon herself to help ease the fears that people may have when it comes to visiting the dentist. “Jen Dafoe’s Chico’s First Trip to the Dentist has been picked up by publisher Fitzhenry Whiteside and will be distributed to Shopper’s Drug Marts and Loblaws stores across Canada.“I’m ecstatic,” said Dafoe, who has been selling and distributing the book herself since it was launched in 2014.“I’m happy because I know how many young children it’s going to help to take that fear away with information that accurate and up-to-date. If I can take away all those fears and anxieties and replace them with education, smiles and giggles, I’ve done my job.””
Such an amazing girl! She saw a problem and was proactive in how to help people overcome it. If you are someone who feels anxious about visiting the dentist make sure you consult with your local Ottawa dentist and speak to them out the concerns you have. Upon speaking with them and getting a thorough explanation of all dental practices and everything that’s done to make patients feel safe and comfortable, your dental fears should start to subside.
