Embarrassing Moments During Quarantine

Over the quarantine, our entire lives changed.
We were no longer seeing family and friends. We were no longer going out to dinner. We were limiting the times we left the house, to a bare minimum and were wearing masks whenever we entered into a building.

Overnight we went from having our son going to school, to our son who was being taught by Sarah and I, all through a computer.

During the quarantine, Sarah continued to work her full time job, and since I wasn’t working, I became more of the at-home teacher. Every morning when I told Finn we had to start his school work, he came up with the same resistance. He would say, “I hate school”, or “this is stupid” or “it’s soooo boring.”

This resistance between Finn and I, happened daily.

In the beginning, I would try to explain how some of the things that we do aren’t fun. We just have to do them. But as the days went on, my patience was wearing thin, and suddenly my responses became, “You’re doing your homework because I said you have to do it. NOW LET’S STOP WASTING TIME AND LET’S GET THIS DONE!!!”

Then he would begin to cry uncontrollably. Sarah would come running down with this completely embarrassed look on her face and say, “What is going on down here? I’m in the middle of giving a training program on Zoom.”

Sarah had many of these embarrassing situations while she was on her Zoom calls. Sarah would be in the middle of a meeting and Finn would run into her office and ask for food or attention.

Everyone got it and understood the current situation but she still felt embarrassed.

Embarrassment is a feeling that keeps a lot of people from going to the dentist.

Many people feel embarrassed that they let their oral health go and that they will be judged or lectured.

This is a very common feeling for a lot of people and many times, a huge barrier for them.

This is something that our entire office handles very well. TREAT PEOPLE IN A NON-JUDGMENTAL WAY.

If you want to go to the dentist without feeling judged about your dental health, please call 773-292-1911 to schedule your appointment.

Emilio “Creating a Safe Dental Space” 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.”
