A while back a patient wrote why they smiled “Realizing that I had not thought of tooth pain for a long time.”
It made me happy to learn that one of my patients would write such a comment.
In my mind, the patients sentiment means that they have done all that they could for their dental health and that my staff and I were doing our job as well.
Tooth Pain is what causes many people to seek a dentist. However, waiting for the pain may not always be the best way for you to take care of your health. Dentistry is about prevention.
In my practice we work as team with our patients to avoid issues that would cause pain.
