With a broken tooth, I was prepared for a lot of pain. I know Doctor Eddie had to scrape out a ton of the old silver filling and Dora was very patient with me, asking when it was all done, if I needed some Tylenol or Motrin, so I was in for what I thought would be a lot of pain; however, after the Novocaine wore off .... I felt NOTHING. No pain whatsoever. Not even where I got the Novocaine shot. And today, I continue to be pain free. I have never been good about going to the dentist; however, I feel that I am in good hands with Dr. Eddy Choi and will even send my husband, who feels the same way about dentists as I do, back to Dr. Choi! Thanks for a GREAT experience.
