Memories of Churros | Dente Complete Dentistry

Memories of Churros

This last weekend, we were in the city doing a staycation. As I said yesterday, we went to several museums and restaurants.

Something that I have really been craving has been Xoco’s Churros con Chocolate (churros with chocolate).I love the fried dough treat with sugar and cinnamon sprinkled over the entire desert. They also serve it with a rich dark chocolate that is used to dip the churro into.

I love this desert, not so much for the taste, but more for the memory it elicits.

I first had churros con chocolate in Spain about 30 years ago.

After college, we went backpacking and my favorite country was Spain. When I was in Spain, I ate churros con chocolate everyday.

The churros and the people were amazing. They were a lot of fun and very nice.

In Spain, the entire family went out together. It wasn’t unusual to see the kids, parents and grandparents, all out together, for the evening.

I remember, we were in Seville, and people were dancing Flamenco in the street. Someone grabbed us to teach us how to dance this Spanish dance.

The reasons I love eating churros here in Chicago is, first, they are delicious and second, because it invokes all these great memories of Spain.

Certain things or events will trigger our memory. Sometimes these memories are positive and other times, these memories can be negative.

In dentistry, we see it all the time. People will avoid going to the dentist for years, because of negative dental memories, that are brought up, just by walking into a dental office.

Dental anxiety is a real thing. It affects an estimated 50 percent of the American population.

Here at Dente, we recognize this and offer Anxiety Free Dentistry to our patients.

Our patient is given an anxiety reducing pill the night before and one on the morning of their dental appointment.

Most patients will let us know that this is the best appointment they have ever had.

Emilio “Chocolate Churro Man” 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.”
