Dental nightmare

So…Wednesday we went to a large dental hospital in London full of expectation that they would be able to cope with Jude and his serious dislike of people touching his mouth. The dentist wasable to get a peak at his teeth but when it came to having an x ray, we had to admit defeat. Does anyone have any good experience of visiting dentists with a disabled child? Our problem was that Jude doesn’t understand what they are doing so kind of freaks out. I will investigate useful links and products for this but we were recommended just to visit our dentist more often than normal so it becomes a familiarity.
