I am a coward when it comes to going to the dentist; probably from childhood trauma and even adult trauma. I'd say the adult trauma was from choosing the wrong dentist, because I have had some of the same work done at Dentistry by Design and it wasn't even close to the same experience. Everyone at Dentistry by Design is very friendly and makes you feel welcome and comfortable. They are gentle, gentle, gentle. As an added bonus, the office does not smell or sound like a dentist office, which really helps with the Fear Factor. I can't imagine why anyone would go any place else!
