Next weekend, my son Finn, will be getting his first communion. The second grade is when Catholics receive their first communion.
Having Finn go through this process, reminded me of when I received my first communion.
Just before we did our first communion, I remember we had to confess our sins to the priest. This was probably the most stressful part of the whole process.
I had to sit in front of the priest and tell him all the things that I did wrong. I remember that I was so nervous, and I was asking all the people in line, what they were going to say.
We were all whispering in the line, “Tell him, you were mean to your sister, and you didn’t do your homework and things like that.” And that’s exactly what I said.
If I wasn’t pushed to do it, I would have skipped the confession.
I remember having knots in my stomach and I was really nervous, as I stood there in line.
I finally was called over and quickly said my entire list of things that I did wrong. I got it done as quickly as I could. I sat there waiting for my punishment and it never came. He just said, “Be better and do a couple of prayers.”
I didn’t get yelled at, which is what I thought was going to happen, and the whole process was pretty easy.
Fear is a very real thing and many times it keeps us from getting things done.
Dentistry is no different. Many people avoid the dentist because of fear.
Here at Dente, we recognize this issue and offer Anxiety Free dental appointments. We offer the patient a series of anxiety reducing pills that help them relax during their appointment.
Most of these patients will report that their Anxiety Free appointment was the best dental appointment they’ve ever had.
If you are ready to experience the best dental appointment ever, or you just want to feel less anxious, you’ve come to the right place. Visit us at mydente.com or call 773-292-1911, to schedule your consultation today!
