Abstract

A lot of patients experience fear and anxiety when going to the dentist. Fear can make patients avoid going, increasing the risk for bad oral health. Patients who experience dental fear can sometimes feel embarrassed and helpless.

Dentiness is an app that helps patients communicate with the dentist by educating and helping the patient to understand treatment procedures. This gives the patient a feeling of being in control of a scary situation. Dentiness also helps the patient communicate during treatment sessions when unable to communicate verbally.
