Why people hate dentists

Posted on April 20, 2011 at 9:26 PM
From this issue on, I will post the content of an excellent dental educational book " I hate dentists!" by Dr. Mac Lee. It will take me many days to finish posting this book, so come back to this website and read on if you find this book interesting and helpful.


Why people hate dentists

During the 1950s, TV was coming of age with shows like Howdy Doody, Sky King, Hopalong Cassidy, and The Honeymooners. The "tube" entered households at the speed of Superman and became a national pastime. Also popular were fallout shelters, poodle skirts, and duck tail haircuts. What wasn't popular, however, was going to the dentist, but that's no sur­prise. For hundreds of years, dentists have been a ripe source of frightening imagery for artists. And many baby boomers grew up dreading the smell of the dental office and the noise and vibration of the "dreaded" slow drill of that time.

The dental office of the year 2000 bears no resemblance to what it was in the 1930s, '40s, or '50s and the old jokes no longer suit the technically sophisticated profession that dentistry is today. As a result, many folks who haven't been to the dentist for awhile are not aware how far dentists, dental labs, and manufacturers have traveled to give patients the highest level of comfort.

In this section, we deal with your fears and anxieties and any issues of mistrust that can keep you from going to the dentist. We arm you with information and questions to ask when searching for the right dentist for you. We also take you backward and forward in time. In "That Was Then, This Is Now," we will show you how technology has skyrocketed dentistry into the new millennium. So sit back and relax. This won't hurt a bit.


Keep your teeth alive! Put a modern spin on an old dental story.

When we first started writing this book, it seemed as if the number one problem for people who say, "Nothin' personal doc, but I hate dentists!" is the fear and anxiety created by the nightmarish dental experiences of childhood. In some cases, the experiences were difficult. But, after much heated debate, we concluded that the core issue is a lack of trust because folks don't understand what the dentist is doing to their teeth and gums. And lack of trust can create feelings of fear and anxiety, shame and embarrassment, and claustrophobia.

To keep your teeth alive, we are determined to help you leap over tall buildings and overcome smile-defeating obstacles that keep you from getting your teeth fixed or put you into a cold sweat every time you walk into a dental office. The fact is, however, that most of us want to keep our teeth and the only person who can help us do that is a dentist. And one thing we know for certain, when people get their teeth and gums into a healthy prevention mode and work on a daily mouth care regimen, a trip to the dentist is a walk in the park.

When you buy a new car and bring it in for the recommended warranty check-ups, it makes you feel secure that no unexpected problems are going to occur-unless of course you get into an accident. It's somewhat similar with teeth. When you get your teeth up to speed and functioning in optimal health, you'll get a lot more mileage on your teeth-for less money-than you will on that new car.          To be continued...
