Old Friends, New Memories

This last weekend, I hung out with my college roommate. Ed lives in Brooklyn, and I haven’t seen him in nearly 10 years.

He called me because he was going to see his parents, who now live in Wisconsin, and he wanted to meet up. It was great seeing Ed and he brought with him, some old pictures. One of the pictures he brought, was when we took a sailing trip from Escanaba Michigan to Door County.

Now Ed and his family are huge sailors. He and his family won the Mackinac race one year. Ed was part of a sailing racing team, here in Chicago. Ed’s brother, Eugene, was asked to join the America’s Cup Team.

During one of those boat trips, that I shared with them, I remember that the winds were blowing very hard, and the waves were really high. The water looked pretty scary, but Ed and his family are experienced sailors. Being with them took away my nerves.

But the moment that we took off, I knew this sailing trip was going to be a rough one. The boat would go up the wave and all of a sudden crash on the way down. There were moments when the wind was blowing so hard, that I could literally reach my hand out and touch the water.

I can’t remember how many hours this trip lasted, but it seemed like we were on this boat forever.

I puked the entire trip. Totally horrible. It was arguably top 5 worst experiences I’ve ever had.

From that day on, I never want to ever take a long boat trip. This bad experience completely changed my behavior as to riding in a boat.

In dentistry, many people will have a bad experience that will create an ongoing fear of dental treatment.

Many people will avoid the dentist for years. And a lot of these people will only go to the dentist when they have pain.

There are times when they will be unable to get into an office immediately and they are dealing with the pain for days.

Dental anxiety is a real thing. In the past, patients were told, “hey you just got to toughen up and deal with it.”

Here at Dente, we have another solution…Anxiety Free Dentistry.

Anxiety Free Dentistry consists of an anxiety reducing protocol that helps people relax during their dental appointment. The patient is given anxiety reducing pills and their anxiety is virtually eliminated. Also, patients can then get more profoundly numb and stay numb for a longer period of time. This means more comfort all around.

For me, treating anxious patients is a game changer. It now means that hundreds of people of getting their oral health fixed more readily.

If you are nervous about going to the dentist and would like to get an Anxiety Free Dentistry consultation, please call 773-292-1911 or visit us at mydente.com to schedule your appointment.

Floss like a madman!

Emilio “Boats Beware” 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.”
