Last week, one of my friends told me that her landlord had discontinued her lease of her dental office. He only gave her until April to find a new spot and build another dental office.
She had been in that space for over 35 years. She was in complete shock.
When she told me that story, I had a sinking feeling in my stomach and my heart began to race.
It brought me back to when I was 12 years old and my dad had lost his lease to his gas station. He was given 90 days to get out of the location. That time was a very stressful time for our family and I remember thinking we were going to be out on the street.
It’s funny how these types of traumatic events stay with us for our entire lives and even create a biological response, with just the thought of the event. Many of our patients have had a traumatic dental appointment, in their childhood, that has caused them to have a fear of the dentist.
We recognize that this is a big problem in our country and have figured out a solution to help make their appointment more comfortable.
Here at Dente, we provide Anxiety Free Dentistry.
This part of our practice is one of the fastest growing areas thus showing the need to providing this service.
If you avoid going to the dentist because of fear, please call 773-292-1911 to set up a consultation.
