“I was never afraid of anything in the world except the dentist.” -Taylor Caldwell

Going to the dentist can be intimidating and scary for most children and, sometimes, adults. Looking at those instruments and hearing those drills in such a sterile environment is not pleasant. Some people are so nervous that they need to be sedated to just get a regular check up. To rectify it, the Pediatric Dentistry of Northbrook in Illinois had a brilliant idea — bring in a comfort dog. Named JoJo, she’s a specially trained dog to sooth people’s anxiety.
