Thunder and Lightning | Dente Complete Dentistry

Thunder and Lightning

Last night we had a horrible thunderstorm by our house.

I would see the lightning and count in my head until I heard the thunder. I remember as a kid I would do this to see how far the lightning was from my house.

I have no idea if this was the right equation but it was theory I was working with. I would think every second there was a delay in the thunder, would equate to the thunder/lightning combo being a mile away.

For example, if I saw the lightning, I would count one Mississippi, two Mississippi, and so on until I heard the thunder. So if it was a 3 Mississippi lightning to thunder ratio, then the lightning was 3 miles away.

We used to have a dog that would freak out as soon as he saw the rain start. He would totally freak out with the thunder and shake uncontrollably.

He knew from past experience, when he would see rain, thunder was soon to follow.

These types of connections with things that we dislike, happen all the time.

For many people, hearing the sound of a dental drill, will elicit an extreme amount of anxiety. Others will smell the chemicals that we use to disinfect and have the same negative reaction.

For these dental phobic patients, we have to ability to offer them a completely, unique experience. Anxiety Free Dentistry.

These patients are given anxiety reducing pills prior to their appointment. They take one pill the night before, to enhance their sleep experience, and another one an hour before their appointment.

This creates a relaxed dental environment for the patient.

Many of these patients will tell us that this was the best appointment they’ve ever had.

If you are an anxious patient and would like to schedule an Anxiety Free Dental Appointment, please call 773-292-1911.

Floss Like A Madman!Emilio “Playing in The Rain” 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.”
