Seriously, if you cringe at the thought of a dentist, you need to meet Dr Staley, the main guy at Copper Creek Dental. He was a Navy captain, and now he's the most caring dentist I have ever met. He really does care about whether you are having any pain, and he will do anything he can to make everything pleasant. I mean, he really ""feels your pain"" and wants you to feel none.
But also, this office has invested in some of the most amazing modern hi-tech equipment ever. Remember the X-ray with the lead vest? and the big sheets of film? None of that. It's all done with electronics, and the results are immediate and on the monitor screen right in front of you. They have a full-face visualizing scanner that takes a picture of your entire head and shows what's going on and from that you can see what you want to get done. And another machine that actually uses hi-tech modeling to make the exact fit of a crown or a replacement tooth, and they make it right there to fit.
These are nice people in the most modern office I've ever seen, been in, or heard of. Highly recommended.
