Six words of wisdom: You need to see this dentist!
For someone who has had huge lapses in dental visits throughout the years, I am always somewhat anxious and skeptical when scheduling a dental exam or procedure. Unfortunately a broken tooth with the old filling falling out could no longer be ignored, and it was past time to make the dreaded appointment once and for all...
Lo and behold! I saw excellent ratings for Dr, Hooty with rave patient reviews, so I thought, what have I got to lose? More like what was I about to gain?! What an absolute superb example of what a dental team should be like. If I could design the perfect staff, it would be the ladies at Great Oaks Dentistry. Right from my arrival (as a new patient to boot!) I was warmly greeted by Karen and Jill. They were both kind, friendly, caring, and empathetic during the entire four hour visit I had today. Both explained in detail what I'd be experiencing, and made sure to take great care to make me feel comfortable and welcome.
As for Dr. Hooty, he is a lifesaver! I made this appointment on Monday, and by Thursday I had not only my tooth fixed, and beautifully I might add, but also a very thorough oral exam and cleaning as well. I was shocked to be taken care of so quickly and efficiently for being a somewhat terrified new patient who had let years go by without getting proper dental care. I was not made to feel ashamed or uncomfortable one bit, which is a huge plus when you're already embarrassed about your oral health.
The entire team at Great Oaks Dentistry took great patience and care with my extended four hour visit. I've never felt more comfortable, especially from a first impression standpoint at any medical office, and in such good hands as I felt today. I will definitely be back when more work is needed to be done. Don't hesitate to make an appointment with these guys, you will most certainly not be disappointed! (Um, also their logo is an owl! How cool is that?! ^_^)
A HUGE thank you to Dr. Hooty, Karen, and Jill for making such a nerve wracking experience so unexpectedly wonderful!
