Sledding To Safety

I’m not sure if you noticed, but this last weekend, we had a lot of snow

For the last month Finn has been asking to go sledding.

Now in the olden days, we used to have these wooden toboggan with these metal legs that make contact with the snow.

Frequently we ended up bloodied with a nice wipe out and one of those metal parts clocking us in the head or another body part. But it was all good. If the bleeding stopped we could continued to slide down the hill.

I grew up in the North Suburbs and I am totally familiar with all of the good sledding hills. Not every hill is created equally.

We have a nice hill in Evanston called Mt. Trashmore. Supposedly it was an old trash dump, threw some grass on top of it and poof … a sledding hill was formed.

Mt. Trashmore is not the type of hill you go down your first time. It’s big, its steep and it’s very fast. You need to have an idea of what you in for.

I decided to take Finn to an easy one that would not require as many stitches. This hill is located in Skokie by one of the elementary schools, Jane Stenson. This brought back old memories of sledding on the very same hill, 40 plus years ago. Good times.

Not all memories of your youth are good ones. Many people have traumatic memories of their youth while at the dentist. These traumatic events cause people to have a fear of the dentist and eventually avoid the dentist.

Here at Dente, we recognize that many people have dental anxiety and we offer anxiety reducing pills.

For these patients we offer them an anxiety reducing pill the night before and another pill the morning of the appointment.

If you are anxious at your dental appointments and would like to have an Anxiety Free Dental appointment, please visit us at or call 773-292-1911.

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.”
