Coughing in Public | Dente Complete Dentistry

Coughing in Public

I love drinking water. I am not a fan of pop or any other kind of beverage. Water is my go to and I carry a water bottle with me at all times. I try to drink a gallon of water a day.

But in the last 6 months, I’ve been terrified to drink my water in public.

I usually chug my water and drink it quickly. Many times the water will go down the wrong tube and I’ll begin to choke and cough uncontrollably.

In the past, this would have been no big deal. Someone may have said, “Are you ok?”

Today, this coughing in public ends up being a way more embarrassing situation. People will look at you with this concerned look as if you’re infecting the entire space with COVID 19.

Then you quickly put your hands up and let the entire public know that you’re ok and you’re just choking on your water. Then you begin to inform everyone how you are being so safe that you haven’t interacted with any humans for the last 18 months.

People are very concerned with what other people think about them, and avoid situations where they feel like they may be judged.

I am definitely one of those people. I hate the idea of being judged.

Many people avoid going to the dentist because they are worried about being judged.

Some people are afraid that when they go to their dental appointment, that the dentist and the office will judge them.

A compliment that we hear on a pretty consistent basis, is how non judgmental we are.

The reality is is that we’ve seen every kind of dental situation.

I myself, have gum issues, and I am treated by a gum specialist. I have the most intense oral care and still see breakdown in my own mouth.

“One can not throw stones who lives in a glass house.”

Being compassionate and non judgmental is one of our best qualities.

If you are worried about being judged and would like to be treated in a non judgmental dental environment, please call 773-292-1911 to schedule a new patient appointment.

Emilio “No More Red” 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.”
