Most people either loved going to the dentist as a kid—or absolutely hated it. Where did you fall? How come?

I absolutely hated going to the dentist as a kid. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the most dental phobic, I was an 11. Looking back, most of my fear as a kid came from the fear of the unknown and the fear of not being in control. I promise my patients that you will be in control during the appointment. Let myself and my team know when you are ready, when to stop and what makes you uncomfortable. Ask as many questions as you'd like, too!
