One of the things that the staff does here in helping to ease anxieties or make you feel more comfortable is it’s really that communication. Talking to you about what exactly is happening, whether it be on the phone or once you arrive. Walking through what needs to be done or what’s led up to that to maybe cause the issue. And then throughout the process, even when I’m having my teeth worked on, they’re really great about telling me what they’re doing: “Here, we’re getting ready to use this tool, and it’s going to sound like this. Don’t be alarmed, it’s going to sound worse than it really is.” “Okay, here’s what we need to do; we’ve ran into this, we’re going to try this.” Just that simple communication during the procedure as well as before and after about what needs to be done or what medications and what those medications might cause, any kind of side effects. It’s so helpful because it just puts you at ease. It helps you not to be alarmed, and it just makes the whole process just much easier, less scary.
The truth of the matter is, I look forward to coming in. I come in twice a year for my checkup and for my cleaning, and then obviously if there’s an issue, then I come in to have that addressed. I look forward to seeing the staff. I used to absolutely dread going to the dentist. It terrified me, and I honestly don’t feel that way about coming here because I know, like I said, they’re going to try to make me as comfortable as possible, they’re going to try to make it as painless as possible if it’s something that’s a little more invasive. But it’s a place that you enjoy actually coming and seeing the staff remember you. They remember your name, and they take fantastic care of you. It really is just a wonderful practice, and they know what they’re doing, that’s for sure.
