Is Irish a Different Language? | Dente Complete Dentistry

Is Irish a Different Language?

I was born in Chicago, 50 years ago, but English was not my first language. It was Spanish.

I began learning English when I went to kindergarten.

At first my English was pretty shaky, but I can confidently say that I’m an expert with the language.

Being a son of immigrants and being around many different types of immigrants, I’ve been able to understand many types of accents.

But this last weekend I met my match.

This last weekend, I was watching a documentary on this Mixed Martial Arts Fighting Champion by the name of Conor McGregor.

Conor is a fighter that comes from Ireland.

Throughout the documentary they were interviewing Conor and I couldn’t understand a word he was saying. They should have had subtitles.

He was speaking English but his Irish accent was so thick that it might as well been Chinese to me.

Many times, people think dentists are speaking a different language.

A patient will walk into an office with a certain problem and the dentist does a thorough exam.

The dentist will present their findings and may never address the issue that got the patient to pick up the phone and make the appointment in the first place.

At this point, patients can feel a disconnect with the dentist and feel as if they are not being heard.

This is something that I wasn’t great at, in the beginning of my career. A patient would walk in with a problem and I would find a more urgent problem that I thought needed to be addressed quicker.

Early in my career, I noticed this flaw in my communication. I worked very hard to improve my listening skills and address the patients main concern, every time. Having the patient feel heard, is one of our biggest compliments.

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.”
