Study Up | Dente Complete Dentistry

Study Up

Over the summer, Finn, my son, continues to read and do math.

His reading skills are definitely better than his math skills. He enjoys reading, but math, not so much.

Everyday I try to do about 10 minutes of math, reviewing his times tables and division and also keeping up with his addition and subtraction.

In the beginning of the summer, we were doing math review and the daily math sessions were not bad.

Now that we are getting into newer material, the sessions are more difficult. Dare I say, brutal.

The second that I mention that we need to do math, he’ll begin to cry and hyperventilate.

If he gets any problems wrong, he completely beats himself up and yell, “I can’t do this, it’s too hard.”

Usually we’ll have a page with 100 problems. Just looking at the sheet of paper makes him cry.

I definitely do not look forward to doing math homework with him. My heart rate goes up and I begin to sweat, just before I tell him that he has math to do.

It is such an unpleasant experience.

If this was not for my son, I would totally avoid it, but I know it’s for his own good and I bare through it.

Many people have a task that produces anxiety, but they will push through it just to get it out of the way and over with.

We see this in dentistry all the time.

People have a very anxious response to the dentist and just bare through it. They clench the dental chair to the point where they are white knuckled.

50% of the population avoid going to the dentist because of fear.

Here at Dente, we recognize this trauma and fear and we offer Anxiety Free Dentistry.

We basically give our Anxiety Free dental patients pills that help them with their dental appointment.

As a result, most of our patients will describe their Anxiety Free Dental appointment as their best dental ever.

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

P.S. As a parent, the anxiety reducing medication of choice is wine…hehehe.

Emilio “Math Tutor Is My Side Gig” 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.”
