Darla talks about kind dentistry
I had a fear of dentists, and I let my teeth get pretty bad in the back. I knew it was bad. Other dentists in the area made me feel guilty that I hadn’t taken care of my teeth. I came to Dr. Patel and he treated me unbelievably well. It was awesome!
The first time I came in I almost couldn’t walk through the door. It was very hard for me to walk in, but I started talking to the staff and started feeling better. The first time I was in the chair, I was crying and shaking, but Dr. Patel calmed me down. We talked about what he could do to get my smile back and help me feel better about myself.
I came back the next week for my procedure. I had teeth that were broken off in the back, and Dr. Patel was able to replace them with implants.
I work at a salon, so it was hard for me to not have my teeth looking good. With my implants, I now feel so confident in smiling. I taught myself to smile small, but now I can smile as big as I want.
