I’ve got a dentist who has the hands of a vindictive troll. Each appointment is pure toture. I dread going to the dentist. I have a friend who goes to your clinic and she says she’s never had an unpleasant appointment. How can I get one of those kind of dentists?

Your kinds words mean a lot to everyone at our office. We work hard to make sure our patients are comfortable. It’s hard to know too much about whether a dentist will be gentle without first experiencing an appointment with them. However, there are some things that can ensure the balance is at least a little in your favor.
One thing I would look for is someone who openly says they enjoy working with fearful patients. Generally, speaking those types of dentist are genrally more gentle than others. Sometimes they call themselves gentle dentists. Sometimes they say sedation dentist. Others say they cater to cowards.
I would start there. I hope you find what you’re looking for soon. There are plenty of great dentists out there.
