After losing two veneers I finally bit the bullet (pun intended) and went to the dentist. Ok, I was actually kidnapped by my dad on the pretence of going to lunch but he took me to Northern Pines Dental. This was a referral from Dave Rattle who knows me and the look of panic on my face when he approached if I had been yet…
I think that dad was tired of my being cranky as probably were Heather Johns, Sandra Pilkington and Dista Goguen. If not for the support of these 3 ladies … I would have really lost my mind … I am pretty sure they lost theirs with me though 🙂
Walking into a dentist office for me is like jumping off a bridge when you are afraid of heights, but from the first moment I entered they immediately sensed my unease and quickly started to try to put me at ease. The receptionist was vibrant and patient with just a bit of well placed humour that started to relax me.
Dr. Wayne Lord is who treated me and he did with kid gloves. He explained my options and went through both the pros and cons so that I was able to make an informed decision. Sometimes cost is a factor and Dr. Lord, I have to say is more reasonable than you can imagine and I thank him for that. The time alone he spent with a walk in /kidnapping is to be commended.
Although I knew what was going to happen ( throw in an over active imagination) Dr. Lord informed me of each step before beginning … also asking me to please breathe every few minutes. From the tone of his voice and gentle style, I have to say that this was probably the best experience I have ever had with going to a dentist.
All I can end with is if you are looking for a dentist that is just plain amazing I highly suggest that you contact Northern Pines Dental … you won’t be sorry.
