It breaks my heart when I hear that someone has avoided dental cleanings and treatments because of a previous negative experience. I know that dental phobia is real (and with reason), but when I think about how different the teeth and lives of these patients would be if their experiences had been more positive, it makes me realize that it’s my job to put you at ease — even if you’re already my patient. One particular example is with my patient, Alexandra, who’d avoided dental care for years due to an experience during adolescence. To learn more about how Alexandra’s opinion of dentistry has been transformed, read her story or view her video.
An Unpleasant Experience
We’re most impressionable when we’re young; every experience shapes our future, for better or for worse. Alexandra is the perfect example of this. As someone who had a bad experience at the dentist during adolescence, she had avoided dental cleanings and treatments for years.
The Next Generation Prevails
After years of apprehension, Alexandra decided to give us a shot. Alexandra was so happy with the care she received that she brought in both of her daughters, as well. After she knew that the entire family would be happy with the calibre of care we provide, she committed to treatment for gum disease and her daughter completed orthodontic treatment.
