Thirty percent of millennials brush their teeth only once a day and many have gone two or three days without brushing at all. Yucky.
So, it makes sense that more than half of them are anxious and fearful about losing their teeth. What do they expect?
This is a great example of the knowledge-execution gap where you know what to do, you just don’t do it!
Maybe it’s because most people fear dentists more than they do surgeons.
They’re so afraid, in fact, that they’d go without sex for a month as trade-off for not seeing a dentist. With those rotten teeth, what are the chances of a liaison anyway?
Millennials say it’s the noise and pain that spooks them the most. What to do?
Find the dentists that focus on creating a comfortable setting and reducing your anxiety and pain. That’s a good start right there. Your teeth will thank you!
