How to Get Your Stubborn Husband to Go to the Dentist

Whether the man in your life has an innate fear of the dentist or he just doesn’t deem it important enough to go, you may understandably be frustrated with his lack of attention to his oral health. After all, you know the importance of regular cleanings every six months as well as flossing and brushing twice daily. But he may not realize it. Check out these tips to encourage your husband to make an appointment.

The #1 reason people avoid going to the dentist? Fear. In fact, three out of four adults report at least some anxiety when facing a dental visit, from feeling slightly afraid to feeling terrified, according to the Dental Fears Research Clinic. Approach the issue gingerly and ask your husband if he feels anxious about going to the dentist.

“ Common sources of dental anxiety include the fear of pain or injections, the sound of drills and other instruments, lying flat in the chair, and simply that lack of control that comes with being at the mercy of someone else.”

You may be rebuked at first, but be persistent. It’s actually quite common for men to feel fear due to the lack of control they experience in situations like dental visits. In a society that puts a lot of pressure on men to be in control and never show emotion, it’s no wonder your guy is having a hard time admitting this.

MY APPOINTMENT WAS 11 O’CLOCK AND PRECISELY AT 11 THEY CALLED MY NAME. AT 12 THE DENTIST HAD GROUND ALL 12 OF MY TEETH. BY 1:30 WE WERE ON OUR WAY BACK TO THE CASINO.
NEXT DAY MY APPOINTMENT TO PUT IN 12 CROWNS WAS FOR 12:30 AND AT 1:15 WE WERE ON OUR WAY BACK TO SUN LAKES.

TRULY AMAZING! THE STAFF, FACILITY AND PHYSICAL CONDITION OF THE FACILITY ALL COMBINE TO ACHIEVE AN EXPERIENCE THAT TRULY EXCEEDS THE PRACTICE NAME.
THE NUMBER OF PROCEDURES COMPLETED IN TWO DAYS WOULD REQUIRE MONTHS OF APPOINTMENTS AT HOME AND WOULD BE AT LEAST 3 TIMES THE PRICE. ON A SCALE OF 10 THIS IS A 20! WELL DONE! ​

I FOUND MY EXPERIENCE ONE OF THE BEST. I DO IT LIKE DENTIST BUT YOUR DENTIST WERE WONDERFUL. HE PULLED A TOOTH AND I DID NOT FEEL IT AT ALL AND AFTER 4 DAYS IT STILL DOES NOT HURT. I LEFT MY MEDICINE IN THE DRIVERS CAR AND THEY HELP ME TO GET IT. I AM TELLING EVERYONE WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE IT WAS.​
