October is notorious for being the scariest month of the year. With ghosts, witches, and zombies making an appearance in the days leading up to Halloween, many people look forward to the one night of the year in which scaring others is not only acceptable – but encouraged! But just because October is a “scary” month does not mean anyone should be afraid of visiting the dentist.
If you are afraid of visiting the dentist because it evokes anxiety or panic, don’t worry! You are not alone. Dental anxiety is quite common.
