I didn't go to a dentist for years because I was terrified. I made an appointment with Southdale Family Dentistry about 12 years ago because I was experiencing some pretty constant pain and liked the idea of sedation dentistry. I had to have a ton of work done and never used sedation because everyone at the office is so friendly and calming that I don't need it. Kris is wonderful and thorough, Dr. Cook has a calming demeanor, and I have never been pressured to have work done that he didn't feel was necessary. I honestly can't imagine going to any other dentist.
