I do not like the dentist at all. I don't fear the dentist though. I fear the hygienist who I know is going to make it hurt. The tools aren't bad at all. Good dentists are using a new set of tools on each patient and if the equipment is state of the art, it is mostly painless. Except for when the hygienist is scraping plaque.

...Hey, this sounds like the dentist is the worse place on earth to go...we are not killers...we only take care of your problems with the help of technology...people don't have to be afraid! I have patients that like very much to come to me...but of course also people with a lot of fear...and when the fear is so big ...we work under stress, because the patient is stressed...so calm ...we are trying to do the best to help...

I hate the dentist. Im scared of the drill. When i was young my dentist didnt numb my mouth before he tried to drill my teeth. I screamed like hell and left the dentist with my mouth bleeding but we never went there again and now im terrified of dentists

Going to the dentist is not one of my ten most favorite activities, however, I do not fear him. I see him twice yearly for a cleaning.

i actually think going to the dentist is okay...and i really like getting novacaine. my dentist is really nice and is talking to me and never lets me see the needle...that way i have no idea that hes shooting my mouth with a needle...so maybe you could have your dentist sneak it in or something..i dont really like needles but it doesnt bother me as long as i dont see it

Hi don't fear them, but it's not my favourite place to be. I don't have a problem with their sharp tools as long as I don't look. If I see a needle coming at me I am strait out the door.

Extreme dental anxiety.. do I need laughing gas, laser dentistry, AND IV sedation?
No, all of these together would be overkill. If you are truly that frightened, then an IV sedation will likely be the least stressful for you. However, relax for the moment. Unless you are in pain that needs immediate treatment, your first appointment will only be a complete exam and x-rays...

Does Dr. T.K Duncan perform substandard Dental Work in Vista?
I would think that the California Dental Board would be able to send you a copy of the letter, or at least give you the number of complaints on file against this dentist. I do not know Dr. Duncan, but live in Escondido, and think anytime someone receives substandard treatment, they should let...

What to expect when car insurance company comes to my house?
Here's good news: Progressive recognizes that you have a legitimate claim, and they are trying to avoid having you go to USAA and have the subrogate the claim for you. What that means is this: USAA can simply award you whatever it is you're asking for, and then turn around and go after Progressive...

Could I get into a decent Medical School?
I will suggest that you apply to a 7-year program that you can get a bachelors/MD. There are many schools that offer such programs and if you keep your gpa the way it is and volunteer and have extracurricular activities, and of course a great personal statement...i don't see why you would not...

What's a Pedodontist?
A pedodontist is a dentist who specializes in treating children. They may be able to tell if you need braces, but they would not put them on your teeth. If you need braces, you would go to an orthodontist.
