Have you been looking for some tips to help your child overcome fear of dentists? If so, you're not alone. Many children are afraid of dentists and it can be difficult for parents to know what to do. When my son started going to the dentist he was really scared, so we tried several different things to help get rid of his fear. I wanted to share some tips that worked best for us. Hopefully some of these tips will help your child overcome fear of dentists, too.

1. Read

One way to help your child overcome fear of dentists is by reading with them books about the dentist. There are tons of great ones to choose from such as Dora The Explorer Show Me Your Smile!: A Visit To The Dentist and Elmo Visits The Dentist. Books like these will show your little one what to expect when they visit the dentist. You may want read the book alone before reading it with your child. While I love that there's such a variety of books about going to the dentist to choose from, some of them go into a lot of detail and this could be a bit scary for young children.
