It seems odd to click Five Stars, i.e. "Loved It." I've spent most of my life avoiding and fearing dentists who either: believed I deserved mouth pain; that pain made me a better person; or that saying "sorrysorry" was as effective as more Novocain at numbing pain. All refused to consider I might have a low pain threshold or use nitrous oxide.
If you, like I, have dental issues and are checking out reviews, you can cut to the chase by picking up the phone and calling Dr. Chan.
Or you can continue to read my review which will tell you how kind, gentle, considerate and skillful this dental practice is. They effortlessly blend state-of-the-art dental procedures with the tenderness of a best friend when you're having a bad day.
They wrap me in blankets, shield my eyes with dark glasses, offer music or movies and whatever drugs are needed to relieve my anxiety. I feel like a pampered cruise ship passenger.
Complex procedures no longer require repeat trips and hours of misery, in the Chair of Doom: many can be done in one appointment. And, I've had little to no pain after the numbing agents wear off.
Several years ago, I had a tooth break days before Christmas. I hurried over to their office where I was carefully examined in the lobby by a dentist wearing an ugly sweater and reindeer antlers. (Yes, I had a hard time stopping my giggles long enough for her to peer into my mouth.) She'd interrupted the office Christmas party to care for me. Although it was Dec. 22, she was able to get an interim tooth made so I didn’t go through the holiday looking like an extra in “Deliverance.”
And -- if you don’t have dental issues -- they’ll be just as kind to you as they are to me. They are an equal opportunity Office of Caring.
