I just had some cosmetic dentistry (4 new crowns) done by Dr. Kari this week, requiring a few hours of treatment with novocain. I have a fair amount of anxiety and I have to say, without a doubt, she made the experience virtually painless using the most modern anesthesia equipment. Patient comfort is a high priority, which for someone like me is extremely important in helping me relax. I watched TV on a flat screen with headphones while the dentist was working on me. My adjacent teeth were protected from hot/cold air and water with a dental dam. My head was cushioned on a comfy little pillow and I was offered a blanket when I got chilly. Best of all, the staff is warm and friendly, and my smile is beautiful again!
