As an individual who had never gone to a dentist (with the exception of having a chipped tooth repaired), I did not know what to expect. As is often the case, a person tends to fear the unknown. Going to the dentist was uncharted territory for me. During my initial visit, several x-rays were taken before Dr. Christopher Doanes examined my teeth. He was very cordial, professional and eased my tension. He addressed every concern I had and answered all of my questions. I scheduled another appointment for the following day (cleaning). The dental hygienist (Renea) was AWESOME. She catered to this coward. She was courteous, patient, gentle, sympathetic to my concerns, knowledgeable, and professional. She explained everything as she went during the entire visit, which is something professionals in the healthcare industry have stopped doing. Renea is truly an asset to Aspen Dental, as well as Dr. Doan. My next appointment is next week, when I have all four of my wisdom teeth extracted and, because of the care I have received thus far, I don't feel as tense about it.
