"Great things start with a smile!" Dr Rosenblat

Made my day...

It's really a great feeling when you finally complete treatment for a patient.  They have a wonderfull smile and are able to eat comfortably and confidently.  And sometimes it's not the final outcome of treating a patient that is the most rewarding but showing a patient they could overcome their fears and have needed treatment done.

"Cindy" is a cute 5 year old with long blond hair.  She really did not want to be in my office.  Vicki, my hygenist patiently  got Cindy to let her clean her teeth.  Taking xrays were another matter.  We were not able to get the pictures we needed of her teeth. Tears flowed and she was not at all happy.  Unfortunately Cindy had four cavities that needed to be treatedand  one causing some discomfort.  

On the day we brought Cindy back for a short filling appointment she was clutching her kitty, a stuffed animal and wasn't at all happy to be here.  Her eyes welled up and she barely said a word to me.  I needed to gain her confidence and show her how easy this really could be.  I decided to give "Laughing gas" a try.  I showed her how it workded and she agreed to let me try.  In no time we had Cindy relaxed and floating and then gave her the freezing with no problems.  ( honestly, parents; giving kids freezing is really not difficult even without laughing gas).  Doing her filling was a breeze after that.  Cindy found that this dentistry stuff was easier than she thought and even let me take her xrays after the filling  (no laughing gas!).   After we were all done she was talking a mile a minute and drew me a great little picture of her appointment.  Made my day...
