Almost one-third of adult Americans hate going to the dentist.  Dental anxiety, fear of needles and concerns about mouth pain are real.  In fact, many people say there are quite a few (rather unpleasant) things they’d rather do than go to the dentist!

We asked around….here are twenty-five things some folks would rather do than go to the dentist:

  1. Drink the daily recommended amount of water.
  2. Tackle the task of putting new staples in a stapler.
  3. Call mom.
  4. Start collecting Beanie Babies.
  5. Walk to work.
  6. Weed a garden.
  7. Help grandmother with her Wi-Fi.
  8. Drive to work with the AC off.
  9. Be your emergency contact.

  12. Eat only mustard for a week.
  13. Take the stairs. Every time.
  14. Paint my house. By myself.
