I have a strong aversion to dental work. I've had numerous terrible experiences elsewhere, due to medical professionals that insisted my anesthesia had not worn off and telling me that I was only feeling pressure, and not pain.
This caused me to avoid even a routine dental visit for most of my life. The sound of a high speed drill still gives me nausea and makes me sweat.
Dr. Raymond was the first dentist that actually listened. I told him the issue, he paid attention to what I was saying, and in all of my visits he has made sure I've never been uncomfortable. Dental surgery isn't a pleasant experience, but he will talk you through it, working efficiently and causing as little pain as possible.
Another reason I'll keep coming back: He's honest. Nothing was sugar coated, and he didn't make things seem more or less severe than they were. He told me the facts, provided me with options, and listened to my response.
The facilities are clean, the staff is knowledgeable and friendly, and Dr. Ray treats you like a friend rather than just a client.
