Dental Care Starts at a Young Age

Fear of the dentist is a very real concern for many people – especially children. Being afraid of the dentist can lead to long-term problems with oral health.

Therefore a recent study aimed to find out more about kids' dental fears. The study found that a parent's fear of the dentist – especially dad's – can increase the child's anxiety. Parents can help children feel better about the dentist by not showing any anxiety themselves.

Dental care starts at a young age and sets the foundation for the future. It is very important to instill good oral hygiene habits in children at an early age.

Dr. Barton, at Dream Smile Dental, strongly believes that the best way to protect a child's smile for life is ensuring he/she has a good experience at the dentist starting at the earliest possible age.
