I called Dr. Gray's office and describe my utmost fear of going to the dentist... a fear even worse than normal dental phobia, as I had been sexually abused by my childhood dentist. I have been going to a dentist for years but he retired. Then I went to his replacement and liked him easily as well but he moved out of the country. This left me terrified and almost frozen and unable to move forward in finding a new dentist, as trust is a huge issue for me. I called their office and was handed over to the new patient coordinator. She spent 45 minutes on the phone with me!!! She listened to everything I needed to say!! I told her all the things I needed from the person cleaning my teeth, as the last time I went in for a teeth cleaning at an interim dentist, I had a full blown P.T.S.D. attack and crawled out of there sobbing, embarrassed and confused. This person at Dr. Gray's office listened to all my concerns and all my requests, and everything I asked for was supplied. The woman cleaning my teeth asked permission to do each and every thing, from putting my chair back to flossing my teeth - per my request. I wanted to be asked if I would allow it; explained what was being done; and given a heads-up when she was about to start each procedure she was doing throughout.
If there is anyone out there who is afraid of the dentist office for any reason, this place is so peaceful and beautiful it is hard to tell that you are even in a dentist office. It is like going to a spa. The music is soothing, the colors and textures and paintings are beautiful and soothing - even the shapes of the walls are soothing. The chair I sat in for my cleaning was so comfortable, I did not want to get out of it. I injured my back several months ago and this was the first time I was completely pain free sitting for that length of time.
I haven't visited the dentist yet - they made a special effort to get me in for a clean because my teeth felt so awful to me - but I am looking forward to reviewing whomever I see. I believe it will be a good review, because the staff is outstanding, the office gorgeous in every way, and the skill level of Dr. Gray is lauded by dentists and patients alike.
Please, if any of you have any fear for any reason, do yourself a kindness, and give this place a try. I think you will be as astounded and appreciative as I am.
