Looking for a dentist?

Picture taken from here.

Everyone (or most everyone) knows how picky I can be when it comes to dental care. A couple years or so back I went to the dentist for my first filling. It was horrendous! I decided not to have pain meds because of a personal preference and boy did I have pain! They were working around an exposed nerve. Since then I had been too scared to go back to have the rest of the work done.

Fast forward a year. My husband kept telling me we should go see Larry Bush, a friend, fellow Christian and as you would have it, a dentist. I kept telling him I did not want him seeing into my mouth. I also didn't want him seeing me in pain because of not using pain meds. Well, come to find out, they use a laser. Hmmm, something worth checking into right?

A couple days ago I went to see Dr. Larry and was more than impressed. He cleaned out my old fillings, opened them up and with the laser I had virtually no pain. There were a couple times it was getting a bit uncomfortable, but NOTHING like before. The best thing, I was also in no pain at all afterwards like at the previous dentist. I'm very impressed with the state of the art equipment they use, how well everything is explained to me and how Dr. Larry respects certain decisions I make (like not using fluoride) whether or not he agrees with it. I feel like I'm treated like a human instead of another number.

So, there's my little plug in for Pairadocs Dental Group in Flint. If you'd like to find out more about my new beloved dental group, please visit the below link and tell them Mandi Kaake sent you :)

Our dentist uses a lazer too and I LOVE it! It's such a gentler approach! Glad you found someone you love :)
