He is a crazy man sometimes, but you already know that if you've listened for an hour or over 20 years. I noticed today he was all about going to the dentist and that got me thinking, do people really dread going to the dentist?

Well although I am not afraid of the dentist nor do I ever get anxious, apparently it is a big deal for a lot of people. (I do get embarrassed when I have a mouth full of spit and they aren't sucking it out fast enough)

DENTAL FEARS:

  1. Fear of the unknown
  2. Fear of the Dental Equipment
  3. Sensitive Gag Reflex
  4. Fear of Loud Noises (some experts advise wearing ear plugs)
  5. Feeling uncomfortable or vulnerable in the dental chair
  6. Unable to breathe through your nose
  7. Having bad breath
  8. Afraid there will still be pain, not enough anesthesia

What scares you about going to the dentist? And do you avoid the dentist because of your fears?

Oh, and I hope for the best for Todd at the dentist
