After 50 years of having horrible things done to my mouth, no dental care at all for years due to fear, losing the only dentist i finally managed to establish some trust for to retirement (the only way he could treat me initially was by putting me on laughing gas..),and a successions of others I did not trust at all,I finally found someone who treats me like a (though initially extremely jumpy,nervous and frightened,now less so) human being and equal! Having been to the practice about 5 times now )and cried every time-from relief/release, rather than fear!!, I can honestly say I feel incredibly lucky..
Starting with first visit for initial chat, x rays and a sit down to gently talk about findings, I have felt safe,in control (mostly..) and an equal,rather than a victim..I have had two teeth removed -not nice,but not painful either-never have I come across a dentist who takes as much time as Mark to get you numb, and IT DOES NOT HURT!!! ,a temporary plate fitted,and then-this is MASSIVE- three titanium screws put in my jaw-first phase of implants..never ever could I imagine having done what effectlively amounts to surgery in my mouth,with nothing but LOCAL ANAESTHTETIC, and not be completely traumatised..
I was told this was likely going to be less traumatic than having the teeth out-and it really was!
The assistant was a sweetheart too,very caring and attentive..
