Fear be gone

   As a mother of two young boys, Dr. Jamie Johnson felt particularly empathetic when she encountered a terrified preschool dental patient.  She asked her 3-year-old son to climb into her dentist's chair; when the girl saw another child in the chair, it calmed her down.  Dr. Johnson realized she could calm young children everywhere with a fun, educational DVD, "Smiles for a Lifetime".  The DVD teaches parents and kids about dental hygiene in a non-threatening way, and covers ages infant on up. Available in both English and Spanish, the DVD is $29.95 from www.thedentaldiva.com.
