Really, does anyone LIKE going to the dentist? As a child of the sixties, dentists to me were nothing but sheer torture in a white coat. Just the sound of a dentist'/ drill sent me into a full-fledged panic attack. As a result, I avoided the dentist for (I hate to say how many) years.
As fate would have it, my lack of dental care eventually caught up to me. As a new resident to Basking Ridge, I looked up the closest dentist and called Dr. Baum. He squeezed me in right away and introduced me to what I have come to call Zen Dentistry. Calm, relaxed, every step explained beforehand. Knowing how phobic I was, Dr. Baum and his staff took extra steps to make me feel comfortable and to minimize any anxiety or discomfort. They -- unlike my early tormentors -- are truly angels in white coats.
So much so that I actually sneak in an EXTRA checkup each year, visiting Dr. Baum every four months instead of every six. If you are a skittish dental patient, you owe it to yourself to receive top-of-the-line dental care in a soothing environment. This is the dentist for you.
