As a kid, my anxiety would increase leading up to a dental appointment
As a kid, I always dreaded going to the dentist – many times even it if was for a normal cleaning. The worst was when I found out that I needed a root canal. Ban in the day, like 30 thirty years ago, there was no Google.
I remember when my dentist told my mom, he has to come back for a root canal. I was like no way, I am not going back. It sounds too painful, etc. Now looking back, I see that my anxiety was un-founded. Also, I wish dentist(s) back then would explain things a little better. This would have made me as a kid much more relaxed.
