You know, I’ve had two root canals done overall and I called Mike, actually, for a recommendation to a root-canal specialist not even knowing that he did that. It was really nice not to have to go to another dental office with somebody you don’t know to have a special procedure done that might or might not be painful. A lot of times, if you’ve never had it done, it can be kind of anxiety because, you know, a lot of the unknown, but being able to come here and have him do it kind of removed a lot of that anxiety over the procedure, knowing that how he takes care of you on a regular basis with regular dental practices could be applied to the same time as a root canal. It was a real pleasure to be able to come to the same guy you always do to have that process done.
Mike’s got a great bedside manner because he has a tendency to keep it light. He likes, I’m going to say joke and have fun, but I think he might do that more with me than he would with somebody else, but I think that’s really his expertise is his ability to mirror and match and adjust his style to the person in the chair to make them comfortable. With me, he keeps it light and has fun where I think with other people, he has another nurturing type tendencies to make them feel comfortable.
If you’re unsure of your current situation from an overall dental or oral health standpoint, to give Mike a try because he cares about his patients more than just what’s going on with their oral health. He cares about them as people as well. Really, the whole staff kind of takes people in as almost like an extended family. They worry about you when you leave. Make sure you’re okay just as much as he is.
