Not Afraid of My dentist
I have to tell you I have lived in fear of going to the dentist nearly my entire life and I have avoided them like the plague. Last November I broke a molar so I had no choice but to go see a dentist. Thanks to a dear friend who understood my terror of dentists she directed me to Thompson Dental. I expressed my concerns and they welcomed me with open arms, they had no idea what they were in for. Those poor souls; Melinda, Courtney and Dr. Thompson all were on the receiving end of my fear. Courtney probably the worst, as I literally broke down in tears sitting in her chair, mind you I am 45 and cried like a child. Turns out the molar was broken in 3 places at its base, which means it needed to be pulled. This molar is in the back so it was big. Now I have to deal with a major procedure, on top of my fear of being there, plus I do not know these people. Only that wasn’t the half of it. My blood pressure was so high they couldn’t do the procedure. I have no idea where this came from but I am suddenly facing blood pressure that is so high I literally can have a stroke. I know you are thinking it was just fear, but you would be wrong. I am currently still working on getting my blood pressure completely under control. I cannot express the gratitude I have for Thompson dental. I have never seen a dentist take someone’s blood pressure before, much less turn them away saying we can’t pull the tooth. They were so concerned about my well being. They were so compassionate, so understanding, so reassuring. I went to see my doctor right away, and got medicated enough to have my molar removed. Despite my general fear, knowing the compassion I received at up to this point, I was able to go through with the removal of the tooth. For those who share my fear, you know how big of a deal this really is to go back and face that fear again. I have since had a few follow up appointments and can say that I am no longer afraid of the dentist, although I might really say I am not afraid of Dr. Thompson or the wonderful women he has working for him. Their kindness is so incredible; I literally feel it as I write this. Not only did they literally save my life, they destroyed my fear and that alone is saying a lot. Thank you so very much I cannot express how much I appreciate all you have done for me.
