    3 tips to help kids overcome their fear of dentists.

    For many kids, a trip to the dentist can be a little scary. Try these tips to help kids relax and feel more comfortable in the dentist’s chair.

    1. Start them young. The earlier they start going to the dentist, the more normal it feels to them.
    2. Stay positive. When preparing for a visit to the dentist, be honest and upbeat without giving them false hopes.
    3. Try a make-believe visit. Role-playing can give kids a fun, safe preview of what they can expect from a real visit.
