Dentist Visits and Autism

Posted on May 18, 2018

Fear of the dentist is common. Many adults are afraid of the dentist. Children with autism may be uncomfortable at the dentist because it is a new situation, they have to sit very still, or they are afraid of the tools or drill. Preparing children ahead of time can ease some anxiety. Learning tips and tricks from parents who have been there can help you make your child more comfortable at the dentist.

On MyAutismTeam, the social network and online support group for parents of kids with autism, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Dentist visits are one of the top 10 topics most discussed.
