Childhood Flashback | Dente Complete Dentistry

Childhood Flashback

I’ve been in and around the Wicker Park, Bucktown, and Logan Square area my entire life.

When I was born, our first apartment was in Logan Square. Both sets of grandparents lived in Logan Square.

And several uncles and aunts also lived in Logan Square.

Once my family moved to Skokie, my grandparents on my mom’s side, would pick us up, and drive us to their apartment in Logan Square. This was every weekend.

It was fun sleeping over their apartment. They would play with us and tell us stories.

My grandma would have us help her cook.

They just drowned us in affection.

It was a great time in my life.

I remember that when my grandfather would pick us up, he would take the same route.

As he turned onto Kedzie, I would see the Logan Square monument with the large eagle. Then I knew we were close to his home.

I would yell out, “There’s the bird. We are close to your house.”

Then my grandfather would begin to laugh hysterically.

He was always laughing. Part of the reason I would say it, would be to make him laugh.

I haven’t driven down that street in years and last weekend I did.

I forgot the Logan Monument was on that street but as soon as I saw it….. a huge smile came to my face.

The image of me sitting in the back seat of my grandfather’s car came to me.

I felt complete joy and it brought me back to a very happy time in my life.

It’s funny how the brain works.

How a sight or smell can trigger the emotion of what we felt at one time or another.

In dentistry, people will have reactions to the sound of the drills or the smell of the office. Many times, the patients’ reaction to these stimulants, is a negative one and create anxiety to the patient.

At Dente, we recognize that a huge section of the American population has a fear of going to the dentist.

That is why we offer ANXIETY FREE DENTISTRY.

ANXIETY FREE DENTISTRY is offering our patients anxiety reducing pills that helps the patient relax during their appointment.

They are given one pill, that is taken the night before the appointment. And one pill, the morning of the appointment.

If you have anxiety while you go to the dentist and would like to try our ANXIETY FREE DENTISTRY, please call 773-292-1911 to set up a consultation.

Floss like a madman!Emilio “Eagle Man” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
