I had a very bad experience as a child w/ a dentist but, Dr. Callstrom has made me fell so much better and more comfortable about going to the dentist. I my never get over that experience but, at least I am more at ease now w/ this dentist then the others I have seen in the past. The only other one I was as comfortable with was an oral surgeon in Greensboro NC. But then again half the time with him I was unconscious lol. But really he was a kind and older gentleman. Reminded me of a Grandfather maybe that is why I was comfortable with hm as well.
