Well, years ago when I was younger, I had a very bad experience at the dentist. It was just like I was traumatized because a’when I came here, it was by accident. My son had told me about this one dentist that he sees. So, I looked it up in a phone book. He didn’t have a number for me. Or I googled it, I should say. I got to talking to Devin, and I told her my fear of coming to the dentist. She told me, she said, “When you come here, we’ll do everything we can to make you comfortable,” she said. She said, “We’ll make sure that you’re in no pain,” she said. And she said, “When would be a good time for you to come in?” I knew that I couldn’t put it off any longer. So, I made my appointment.
Before this, I used to hide my mouth when I smiled or else I’d smile with my mouth closed all the time. Now I smile and people say, “I didn’t even know you had dimples.” A lot of people didn’t even know I had dimples because I never looked directly at anybody when I was smiling. So, just coming here, it really boosted up my confidence. I thought I was confident before, but now I think I’m much more confident.
