The way we relieve dental anxiety is, a lot of it's just your attitude as far as our staff, and me. You got to go into each interaction with kids and be positive. Tell them things are going to be easy. This is no big deal. We try to show them what we're going to do. Tell them what we're going to do and just kind of walk them through the whole process. If we see a kid that's a little more anxious, we'll go a little slower with them. If we see a kid that, they're just here watching the movie, and they don't care what's going on, then we can just ... We just tailor it to each kid to make their experience positive.
