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.

I WAS TREATED AMAZINGLY. EVERYTHING WAS EXPLAINED TO ME AND ANY QUESTIONS WERE ANSWERED. AT MANY TIMES DURING MY APPOINTMENT, MY DENTIST STOPPED TO MAKE SURE THAT I WAS DOING OK. THANKS FOR THE GREAT CARE. I APPRECIATE ALL THAT YOU OFFICE DOES.
-I ALSO WANT TO ADD WHAT GREAT DRIVERS YOU GUYS PROVIDED. THEY MADE MY TRIP ENJOYABLE EVEN THOUGH I COULDN’T RELAX AND WAS APPREHENSIVE ABOUT GETTING DENTAL WORK. THEY ARE GREAT ASSETS TO YOUR TEAM.

​YOUR DENTISTS ARE VERY INFORMATIVE, DO GREAT WORK AND VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE.
I’M A NURSE AND HAVE WATCHED ALL THE PROCEDURES BEING DONE ON JAMES WHITE!
THE DENTISTS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN POLITE AND ANSWERED ALL MY QUESTION REGARDING HIS PROCEDURES, EXTRACTION AND NOW THE IMPLANTS! CANT WAIT FOR THE NEXT STEP ON HAVING HIS IMPLANTS DONE.

THE DENTAL CARE IS EVERY BIT AS GOOD OR BETTER THAN MY EXPERIENCE WITH MY US DENTIST. THE CONCENTRATION OF ALL THE SUPPORT PEOPLE WHO PROVIDE ALL THE COLLATERAL PIECES MAKES THE WHOLE PROCESS WORK VERY SEAMLESS AND QUICK.
THE WORST PART OF THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE IS DEALING WITH THE US BORDER CROSSING, SLOW.
