I am terrified of the dentist. The office smells overwhelmingly like a dentist office. Even the sounds of the dentist tools send fear down my spine. Consider white noise like a counselors office, so you don't hear the conversations and sound from the person next to you. My hygienist, Doris, knows that i am fearful and tried to talk to me the entire time in order to get my mind off of what was happening. Her stories are not the most entertaining, but it worked, i did not cry this time. If Dr. Golden did adults at his pediatric office, I would go there, so so i could pet Flossy to ease my fears.
