July 8th, 2015

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself?” said Franklin D Roosevelt back in 1932. Fear in dentistry, also known as ODONTOPHOBIA, is a universal phenomenon.

Reasons may vary from horror stories, bad experiences, or just a sense of loss of control. There are ways to overcome this obstacle at Lima Dental Associates.
