A Story from My Blog Reader

This story below was sent by one of my readers after seeing my post about phobia going to a dentist.

Hi, thanks for your last post about your fear going to a dentist. I would like to share which is quite the same as yours. Thinking of visiting a dentist make me feel awkward. The serious environment, the killing equipments and the scariest attitude of the dentist, make me feel, as if I have committed a crime and have been sent to this place to undergo punishment. I used to think like that only, till I visited a local dentist Coburg. The dentist place was recommended by one of my friend, who had dental implants in that place. She has such a positive review about this place that I thought to visit it for the problem of my teeth paleness.

I called up there and took an appointment for next day. As soon I entered the dentist place, I felt a wave of positivity and comfortable, by seeing the dentist and the patient around me. I went up to the dentist office, when I was called. He was very calm and understanding, he was listening to my problems; very carefully and then he started to explain me the real cause of my teeth paleness and the procedure to follow it thoroughly for one week. He told me about the treatment cost and everything; I found it very affordable as well.

I instantly got readily for the one-week treatment, which was going to start from next day. From the next day, I started coming to the dentist, and he started my treatment. I told him about my fear of the dentist, and he told that everybody come here, comes with the same fear and goes with shining teeth. I was happy and satisfied with his word of wisdom, and we both had become friendly with each other; in this one-week course. Even his assistant and other staff was also very friendly and cooperative with my fear very well.

Every day I used to wait for my next appointment, as I had got rid of the fear; which I had a few days before. With my last day of treatment, I was happy with the perfect result, which I did not even accept. I was satisfied with the unbelievable service and attitude of the dentist, his assistant and as well as the rest of the staff there. The hygiene of the place, made me totally mesmerized and now I recommend it to everyone, who talk to me about his dental problems, after seeing my shining and white teeth, which I feel proud about, wherever I go.

Dentist Phobia – Not Really Necessary

I haven’t posted here for a while. I was searching for dental implants Melbourne CBD for my fiancée and suddenly I remember about my own experience back in the days with a dentist. Hope by posting this story, it might help people out there who always make excuses not to go to a dental clinic.

I had a phobia of dentists from my childhood days, when my mother used to take me to the dentist for my regular checkup. I was very bad with my oral hygiene and my phobia also left me no choice, rather than showing my teeth problems to a dentist. Whenever I used to think about visiting one, and then the fear of all the equipments in the dentist place made me not to go there. Twenty-five years of my life, simply passed away, by hiding my mouth in front of others.

I used to get embarrassed into such an extent that I never even used to smile in front of anybody. My bad oral habits made my teeth look pale and rotten; I was ashamed of myself being afraid of visiting a dentist for my tooth’s sake. Finally, the time came when I was in Melbourne CBD for some work, when I noticed a sign of a dental clinic nearby a cafe. While having my coffee, something came upon me. I got up and simply when inside the dentist office, before even thinking twice.

The moment I enter, the fear started taking upon me, but soon I saw the scenario of friendly staff, who was talking to their patients very conveniently and in a friendly manner. Those made me take one more step inside the dentist office. One of the dentists came up to me and invited me into his desk and started talking to me. I instantly told all the problems related to my teeth and the phobia of dentists. He completely understood me and told me all the procedure that he will be conducting for the next four days.

I was happy that I was going to visit the place for five more days, I instantly agreed with him and he started my treatment. The dentist was very understanding and used all the equipments carefully, when he saw I was getting panicked and assured me that everything is going great. He did his four days treatment and every day I went there more confidently. On the final day, when I saw my almost white teeth in good condition, then I thought about how foolish I was to get fear about the dentist and making myself embarrassed for so many years and now it makes me happy that I fought my fear and went to that local dentist which had changed my life in the real sense.
