As the result of being taken to a child-unfriendly dentist when I was younger, I have always had a terrific fear about dental work. I have finally begun to go without having a clenched stomach and dread in my heart. Dentists like the one who treated me on Tuesday are so much better than those of my earlier experience. He was great, telling me what he was doing the whole time and making sure I was comfortable with the procedure. I was more than satisfied.
