Going to the dentist is a process that scared many people. I haven't been afraid of going to the dentist, but I haven't gone as many times as I should because there is always something that seems more important. I think I have to change my mind on that topic. At the end of the day your health is the most important thing. Taking care of your own health (including mental health) should be a subject in school. I don't understand why we learn things that we will never applied in our lives but don't learn about our health (I'm not sure if this happens in all schools).
