Patient Review By SHERI F
I can't put into words how heartfelt and thankful I am to this entire office! I had been having lower back tooth pain after a crown for a month. My dentist told me I need a root canal and I was referred to Dr. Van Dusen. I'm not a tearful or scared person, but I was gripped with fear the entire drive to the office and by the time I arrived I was shaking and in tears. Carolee and Tina were so caring and understanding and explained it was not a painful procedure and how well I would be taken care of. Rebecca was a fabulous assistant, helped calm me and even gave me a warm fleece blanket - And as simple as that seems, it really felt great. Dr. Van Dusen came in, introduced himself, reviewed my xrays/ct scan and asked about my personal history with this tooth and the pain. But when he said the words root canal, my anxiety and tears began to flow again. I was so scared. But, he said he'd take excellent care of me and that I would be numbed up well and shouldn't feel a thing. Graciously I accepted nitrous oxide. He explained everything he would be doing, showed me some of the equipment (love that rubber band ha ha) and he and Rebecca talked with me throughout the painless procedure. I can't believe I'm going to say but, this was less painful and easier than a regular routine filling. I was almost embarrassed when it was all over about how upset I had been initially. Upon leaving, Sandy was so sweet asking how I was feeling , gave me my post procedure instructions, and we went over my insurance and balances. I left feeling pretty good. I wanted to wait to write a review until this morning, (the next day) to see just how well I felt, but I'm fine. This is the first day I haven't taken Advil in about 2 weeks. I just can't believe it. While I hope I NEVER have the need for a root canal again, if I do, I'm calling Dr. Van Dusen and his staff immediately and will refer all my friends, family and coworkers, as well. I just can't say enough, how please I am. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!
