I Am No Longer Afraid of the Dentist

Posted by Comments off

I knew when I moved to Colorado last year that I needed to find a dentist. I had found everything else I needed, from a doctor and chiropractor to the bakery and coffee shops that I prefer. I had put off finding a dentist though because that is one the person I didn’t want to have to see. I have not had the best dentists in the past, and that has left me very anxious with anything to do with dentistry. Well, that changed when I had to look up emergency dentist for Aurora last week.

I woke up in a lot of pain, which was really odd because I didn’t even have a clue that was going to happen. When I have had toothaches in the past, they had come on gradually, so this one really threw me for a loop. I knew that I needed to see a dentist though, so I only looked at the ones who were accepting new and emergency patients. When I was able to get an immediate appointment for a dental practice that is only a few miles from me, I was both happy and scared.

The pain made me go though, because I did not want it to grow even worse. I was in tears by the time the dentist came into the exam room a couple of hours after I had made that first call. He thought it was from the pain, but I confessed that just sitting in that chair had me scared silly. He did the most amazing thing. He showed such compassion, which I thought was amazing since I am a grown up. He was very gentle with his exam, and he explained everything he was doing. He told me that there was a crack in my tooth, but that he could save it. He did the work right there, and I swear it was over before I even thought he really got started on it. I am no longer afraid of dentists because of him, and I will go back to him on a regular basis now.
