Anxiety about going to the dentist is nothing new. Even though most procedures do not hurt, the experience of having a dental appointment is not something people enjoy, especially young kids.

Yonder, is an app created to alleviate some of this anxiety. It’s used to introduce kids to the experience of going to the dentist at home so they know what to expect before heading into the office. And kids get to tour the office virtually at their eye level, making it even more realistic before the actual visit. It will be interesting to see this roll out to more cities and hear from families who utilize it.
