Fight Club

Yesterday, I was going through the old photos on my phone, and I came across a photo from almost five years ago.

It was a picture of Finn when he was 3 years old, with a pretty good black eye.

The second that I saw that picture, it brought back the memory of how he got the black eye.

We were at a neighborhood block party and the block had rented an inflatable bounce house for the kids.

Finn has always loved bounce houses and was very excited to play on it, once we arrived at the party.

The party was full of kids of all ages, including a bunch of 12 to 14 year old’s, that were in the bounce house. Even though the bounce house was full of kids, Finn still wanted to go into it.
As soon as he jumped in, he was having a great time. I watched him for a bit and saw that he was ok, so I walked away.

I was away for only a few minutes and then I returned to check on Finn. He was nowhere to be found and a girl was in the bounce house house jumping by herself.

I asked her if there was a little boy in the bounce house with her. She looked around and found Finn in the corner crying. He had accidentally gotten kicked in the face by an older kid. He was scared and went into the corner to avoid being kicked again.

He came out and was crying uncontrollably. It took a good 5 minutes to calm him down. He sat on Sarah’s lap for about 30 minutes and then turned to her and said, “I want to go into the bounce house.”

He went back in, with us monitoring and asking the older kids to be careful with the little ones. He had a blast and the bounce house was the highlight of his day.

Having a traumatic event like that, doesn’t usually end with the person wanting to do it again. It usually causes that person to want to avoid doing it altogether.

We see this in dentistry all the time. Someone has a previous bad experience during a dental procedure, then that person becomes apprehensive about going to the dentist from that point forward.

Fear of going to the dentist is a real thing. It is estimated that between 30 to 50 percent of all Americans avoid going to the dentist because of fear.

At Dente, we recognize this problem and that is why we offer Anxiety Free Dentistry. We offer our anxious patients anxiety-reducing pills, that help them get through the appointment more comfortably.

These patients will take an anxiety-reducing pill the night before their appointment and one the morning of their appointment.

The patient is in a relaxed state throughout their appointment and is able to complete more work in one appointment.

If you have dental anxiety and would like a Anxiety Free Dental consultation, please visit us at or call 773-292-1911 to schedule your appointment.

Check out Finn’s eye!

Emilio “Bouncing Black Eye ” 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.”
