For much of my adult life, I've had bad teeth because--I'll be honest--I haven't taken very good care of them. For the first 30 years of my life, every dental experience I had was awful. Every. Single. One. And that didn't encourage me to go back for more torture. Then I found a dentist who is great with patients who hate and fear dentists, who doesn't shame people or make them feel bad for having less than stellar teeth. If you HATE and FEAR going to the dentist, Dr. Ehrlich is the right dentist for you.
