How to Research Procedures OnlineFirst of all, try looking at our website. See if we have a page on the pediatric procedure your child is nervous about that explains what will happen. You two can read it together, and you can explain any part of it they don't understand.
If that doesn’t work, try a dental organization's website (like the ADA). While it may be a more adult version of the content, the point is still the same. Go over the information slowly, and explain each step in a way that your child can understand.
Instead of letting your child wait in fear, help them find the answers they seek. Go online and find out what the procedure is about, and help them understand what it entails. If they see it in print, they are more likely to believe it to be accurate, which can help them calm down and accept the procedure.
