Many anxieties have their own names. The fear of going to an orthodontist is called odontophobia. Many adolescents who need braces face odontophobia.
We at the office of Hudson River Orthodontics completely understand that a child's first visit to an orthodontist can be fraught with apprehension. Our orthodontists know that their young patients may feel quite uneasy during their initial appointment. They know what's going through their young charges' minds, and use patience and compassion to promote each patient's total comfort.
But know that there are ways for parents to tamp down or eliminate their child's worries before he even steps through the orthodontist's door. We offer these suggestions.
Tell him that:
