I’ve been coming here for about 16 years I think, and I probably hadn’t been to the dentist for about four years. I was very much a child of the, a product of the 60s and 70s, where dentists just went it, they did what they had to do, they didn’t care if they caused you pain. In fact, I had one dentist who said you know raise your hand if I’m hurting you. I did, and he said well that doesn’t hurt, and he just kept going along. So, I had developed a bit of a fear of going to the doctor, or to the dentist. I did not look forward to the pain. I did not look forward to being lectured as if I was a five year old.
I was driving through Quakertown one day and I saw this Dream Dentistry. I though oh I’m going to look into that.
I think one of the things that helped right out of the gate was their questionnaire. What is it that you don’t like about your teeth or your oral health, and what anxieties and fears do you have?
I thought well this is a doctor that really wants to know what’s going to work with me and what’s not going to work with me. Of course Dr. Raider is very personable. His staff is very personable. Love Amber, the hygienist. He just has a very calm manor about him. Devin is the same, very calm. They just have a way of putting you at ease. Obviously he has the sedation that he can offer. I’ve never taken him up on that, but it’s really nice to know that it’s there if I want it.
