Frustrated is My Middle Name

One of the most difficult things for my family and I, during this pandemic, has been the online learning.

The platform that our school uses is called Seesaw. The program has multiple places where his assignments are setup. Most days we miss a least a couple of assignments.

We’ll tell him, “OK Finn, you are done with your schoolwork, you can play now.” Later in the evening we usually get an email from his teacher telling us his schoolwork is incomplete.

Sarah will receive the email and in an annoyed voice she will say, “Finn I was wrong, we have more assignments.”

He will immediately slam his video game controller onto the floor and yell, “But I already finished that!!!”He fights the whole process but once he gets his head into the schoolwork and completes his assignment, he has a sense of accomplishment and pride.

Many people have the same kind of resistance to going to the dentist. (Without slamming down the game controller.)

In our office, we get a lot of people moving into the area. Many of these patients will move to Chicago, get a new job and get settled in into their new life.

For many, the major life shift, will put their health care on the back burner. This temporary pause in their health care treatment may turn into years.

As more time passes, their reluctance to make an appointment becomes greater. They feel they are going to be judged, or that their time off has created big dental problems or concerns.

Almost all of our patients that make an appointment and get their teeth cared for, feel a sense of accomplishment. Picking up the phone is the hardest part.

If you haven’t been to the dentist for some time, call 773-292-1911 or visit us at to set up your appointment.

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.”
