Dental appts for me have always been a source of anxiety having grown up in the 40's and 50's in which Wrigley gum and pop were the norm, but dental insurance was not. But as I enter your office, Chris always sports a friendly smile and pleasant comments to help me begin to relax. Kathy is wonderful! A good source of information about any part of oral care and again mannerisms that help me totally relax. Of course, Dr. Bland, the successor of Dr. Powell(my oral savior), always displays a friendly smile and demeanor, but most importantly the skills and knowledge to save the few teeth I have. I am so grateful for your help and experience! I do not dread dental appts now. Of course a bit of anxiety will always be there; but when I get the "A" grade after an exam it makes my day and gives me a "survivor" attitude that encourages me to improve "my" part in taking care of my own oral health. Thank you.
