Going Up

dentist in chicago

For my son, getting on the elevator, has always been fun for him. He would run up to the elevator and say, “Can I push the buttons?”

He likes being the elevator operator when he gets inside. Anytime someone comes into the elevator, he’ll ask them, “Which floor?” Then push the number the person requested.

Recently, Finn has had a total change with elevators. We went into an older building and he said that he was scared of getting into the elevator. He was afraid that the elevator was going to get stuck.

I had to talk to him, for a good 5 minutes, to convince him that the elevator was not going to get stuck.

The whole way up, he was holding to my hand tightly. He was looking at the numbers to make sure they were changing. And on the way down he told me he was really nervous to go back down. He wanted to take the stairs instead.

When I asked him how he developed this fear of the elevator, he said he saw a family get stuck on the elevator on Youtube.

Many times, you can be afraid of something without having a personal bad experience. You may know a friend who had a bad experience or see something on tv and then develop a new fear.

This happens all the time with dental procedures.

A friend will tell you how bad their dental experience was, and all of a sudden, you will develop a fear of the dentist. Having a dental fear is very common.

For patients with dental fear, we offer Anxiety-Free Dentistry. We give the patient anxiety reducing pills and the patient is very relaxed. These patients will describe their appointment as the best dental appointment they’ve ever had.

If you are anxious or have a fear of dental treatment, visit us at mydente.com or call us at 773-292-1911 to schedule your consultation.

Emilio “Riding the Elevator” 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.”
