My former dentist had a seat-side sink and water cup dispenser for me to rinse intermittently while the cleaning occurred. The alternative your office uses (suction tube ) really bothers me. The suction sounds, etc is just a common thing that grates badly on my nerves.
The hygienist who polished my teeth was very polite and informative. Sorry I don't remember what her name was. I appreciated Dr. Ryan taking care of a small filling that morning instead of me having to come back. He and his assistant work very well together.
