The Cowardly Lion and the Tin Man

As a kid there were 3 movies that we would watch every year with our parents. Every year, the major networks would play Gone with the Wind, Sound of Music, and The Wizard of Oz.

I always looked forward to sitting and watching these classics with my parents. It was something that I look back on fondly.

This last weekend, I was feeling pretty nostalgic.

I was thinking of movies to watch, and The Wizard of Oz came to mind. I was hoping to watch it with my son, as I used to watch it with my parents.

I went into my streaming system and rented The Wizard of Oz. I sat there with anticipation, waiting for the movie to start. As I sat there with my son, watching the movie, Finn suddenly got up and was completely uninterested. I yelled out, “Come on, let’s watch this together. I used to watch this with my mom and dad.”

He just walked out and began playing outside in the backyard.

Ten minutes into the movie, I knew I was not going to have the same experience as I did when I was younger. The movie was not holding my attention either and I was completely bored.

Sometimes an experience that we have as kids, don’t always transfer to the same as adults. Once we try to recreate the experience, it doesn’t have the same appealing quality that we had as a kid.

As kids, many of us had some pretty bad dental experiences.

Once we reach adulthood, we remember those negative experiences and feelings, and our thought process is that we will have the same negative experience at our dental appointments now.

For many people this will keep them from seeing the dentist altogether.

Luckily, we recognize that a huge percentage of the American population have this anxiety.

That is why we offer Anxiety Free Dentistry. Once our patients experience this “Anxiety-Free” kind of appointment, their mindset starts to change.

The feedback that we get is this:

“It wasn’t what I expected.”

“I thought it was going to be bad.”

“I was so nervous. But now that it’s over, I am so relieved.”

“That was the easiest appointment I’ve ever had.”

If you would like these words to come out of your mouth after coming from the dentist, give us a call.

Let us give you the chance to experience a different kind of dental appointment.

Emilio “Looking for My Ruby Slippers” 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.”
