I needed to find a dentist that would specialize in anxiety of going to the dentist and that was something that was very key. I had heard something on the radio, someone mentioned Advanced Dentistry, and so I decided to go and check them out. I have been a patient for a little over five years and do not mind coming to the dentist, and so I actively do refer them through social media or just any people asking for referrals or anything like that. I love Advanced Dentistry. When I come for the cleaning they will put a numbing gel on so that the sensitivity on my teeth, I can't even feel it, and with being able to have the TV and other distractions, I don't even realize what's going on. I get many comments on my smile. People will say, "Why are your teeth so straight and white and pretty," and they ask lots of different questions, and I am very proud to say I had veneers and look what they look like. I even have a before picture on my phone and I will show people what my teeth looked like before. Even old friends that hadn't seen me in a while, they notice something is different and it could be that I'm smiling even more than I did before, but it's definitely a change in my life and I definitely try to share that with others when they have questions or make comments. So it makes me feel really good.
