My Car is Telling Me Something

About 2 years ago, I got a new Honda Pilot. I’ve chosen to buy Hondas for over 25 years. I love their reliability.

I tend to drive fast and probably change lanes more than I should. It’s one of my faults.

Sorry Joe (my father-in-law, who’s a judge and total rule follower).

One of the features on this new vehicle that I bought, is a brake sensor, that detects when I’m approaching a car too quickly. It will start flashing “BRAKE” on my dashboard and my steering wheel begins to vibrate.

When this first happened to me, I thought my car was malfunctioning and I was l going to lose control. My heart was beating out of my chest and once I realized I had control of the car, I began to calm down.

Not feeling in control, can cause much anxiety or even produce a traumatic episode or panic attack.

In dentistry, we see this all the time. This is a big reason why people feel anxious at the dentist, they feel a lack of control.

Laying very still, with your mouth open, hearing the sounds and anticipating pain, is a very vulnerable position.

Dental anxiety is something we see everyday. We have ways to help people cope.

A lot of these patients require anxiety reducing medication. A pill is taken the night before and a pill the morning of the appointment. This allows the patient to relax during their dental procedure, but still be in control of the situation.

It is one of the most rewarding parts of our practice. We are helping people overcome their fear of the dentist.

If you are anxious about seeing the dentist and would like to get an Anxiety Free Dental consultation, please call 773-292-1911 or visit us at to schedule your appointment.

Floss like a madman!Emilio “Go, Speed Racer” 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.”
