Dental experiences must haunt the Top 10 Phobia lists (just me?). I haven't been to the dentist for over 2 years (we can conveniently blame COVID) and I was terrified of my first visit to Dr. Le. I wanted the numbing gel; the plastic tools - heck, I even dreamed of being knocked out completely. I've had oral surgery; root canals; crowns; multiple cavities - you name it, I've faced it. I'm notoriously difficult to numb up, too.
Enter Dr. Le. She explained what she was going to do before she did it. No numbing gel. No plastic tools. And only 2 puny little spots that we're keeping our eye on!!! PLUS: the small of my back never left the chair with that horrible, electric jolt of pain! It was an absolute miracle. Katy, the hygienist, was delightful, as well. What a lovely experience!
