My son Robert, who has autism, has just started coming here. He’s a kid that has huge sensory problems, and yet he feels very comfortable. I mean he tells people outside you know I have got a great dentist. They don’t make him feel less. He brings in his Snoopy’s as a sensory buddy, as he calls it, and he just feels very comfortable. They give him breaks because he can’t just go through one session just without getting up, walking around, or just taking a break. That’s not a problem with them.
You know we used to go to a dentist, and he was a great dentist, but it was very hard because of noises. You know he can hear every single sound, and that stresses him out and gives him a lot of anxiety. So being able to have a place that he feels calm, and he feels he’s not hearing those loud noises. So I think the quiet is really enticing to Robert, and helps him feel comfortable. You know when he was younger taking him to the dentist was a nightmare. It was he didn’t want to go. You know his mouth is so extremely sensitive, even now. I think he’s trying to do more things because he wants to take care of his teeth, and I think that’s a positive thing that we’ve seen with Robert.
You know this practice you can trust. You know that they’re not going to do things that they said no. You know go oh you’ve got a cavity and you don’t. I’ve never had that feeling. You just have that feeling that they’re there for you, and that the work that they do is top notch. Almost like if people are friends, and I think that’s probably a huge thing to me because you trust friends, you know that they’re there for you. I think it shouldn’t be any different with professional things that you get done that they’re there to serve you and make sure that you get the best treatment possible.
