Warm, comfortable environment. I have had a rather severe resistance to dentistry and my teeth showed it. Fact is, I was terrified to go, to the extent that I could not sleep if there was an appointment on my calendar and would get physically ill the day of the appointment. Uptown Dental Associates changed that. After just two visits, I am able to walk in there fearlessly. Dr. Shepherd seemed to understand the fear and, with a combination of humor and patience, made it possible for me to get some extensive dental work done while easing me out of the fear I had. Truly amazing. The entire group in the office are supportive, professional and understanding. I highly recommend this office for your dental needs.
These team members are nothing short of miracle workers. I have complications with dental work due to anxiety and an incredibly sensitive gag reflex. Here, I was taken care of like never before. Everyone is always so nice, patient, and willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. I just had my second procedure done today. I do require sedation, However, my visit today was so incredibly smooth and effortless - it is truly unbelievable. These people never cease to amaze. Cheers to a job extraordinarily well done!
Dr. Rasmussen and his assistants and office staff were the first ones to alleviate my extreme phobia of dentists in over 20 years. I can't find words to express how comforting and professional they all were, not to mention how painless my dental surgery was. If you're looking for a dentist who will help you overcome your fears, he's the one for you. From my consultation to my procedure to my check out, they were with me the entire way. I'm so very appreciative of their efforts and so grateful I found them!
