Q & A with Hien Tong RDH!
Q: What do you do to calm down a patient that is scared of dental procedures?
A: I create an environment for my patients to talk. I listen to patients, trying to understand what their fear is and why they are afraid of dentists. I stay open-minded and have no judgment of what my patients say.
