Here’s a 2 minutes and 54 seconds Parents Can Be Sources Of Their Kids’ Dental Fear video. See full transcript below.

It is normal for kids to have an extent of anxiety and hesitation when it is time to visit the dentist. Some parents would find going to the dental clinic a bit stressful because of their children’s dental fear. You might be wondering where this fear comes from. Most of the time, it is caused by the uneasiness of not knowing what to expect. Then again, as research suggests, this can also be inherited from their parents.

A team of researcher studied 183 children by correlating the levels of their dental phobia to that of their parents. The results showed that the two are closely related. This implies that dental fear can be passed on from parents to their children. As the researchers probed further, they discovered that the emotional reactions of parents when in the dental clinic are key to the development of dental fear in their children. As such, the team suggests that during a dental visit, parents must show their kids that it is possible to stay calm and relaxed as the dental checkup progresses.
