When you’re about to be sick, you should have a good plan to avoid hospitalizations
I can’t even.
I don’t know.
I’ve been told this before, but it seems that doctors are getting more scared of what their patients are thinking about dental procedures.
And while the internet is full of people talking about their own personal experiences with dental anxiety, a recent survey found that only 23% of pediatric dentists believe that children have the right to be able to speak freely about their dental work.
Asking the right questions about what’s going on in the dentist’s office is a good way to avoid these types of conversations.
But this can be a big problem.
One dentist told me that he was having trouble finding a dentist who was comfortable discussing the importance of asking questions about the treatment.
“I know the questions are being asked, but the questions aren’t being asked the right way,” he said.
“And I’m a professional, so I know the right answers are coming.”
It’s an important step to having an open conversation about dental health.
As we age, our teeth become more sensitive and our mouths become more acidic, which can lead to more dental issues, such as cavities.
But the biggest obstacle to having this conversation is that people don’t seem to be getting the right information.
While it’s hard to say for sure, it’s safe to say that the majority of pediatric dental clinics aren’t teaching dental assistants the proper ways to communicate with their patients, according to Dr. Jessica R. Johnson, associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
The study showed that almost 70% of the clinics surveyed didn’t even use a trained dental assistant during oral surgery, even though these services were being provided by many of the top dentists in the country.
“If we want our kids to have a healthy dental experience, we have to ask the right things, and we have the tools to do that,” Johnson said.
