After procrastinating the dreaded trip to the dentist for way too long, I knew that it was time when part of my “regimented” dental care was to avoid hot and cold food items. Yes, a bad sign, I know. I knew that this was not going to be a simple quick cleaning, followed by, “If everyone had teeth like these, it would put me out of business”, as a dentist once told my 65-year old mother.
I had just moved to the Asheville area and began the “dreaded” search through my insurance. I must admit that my search criteria at the time was “no freeway”, “fewest stoplights”, and finding parking during my lunch hour. This very “calculated” search lead me to Dogwood Dental in the Biltmore Village. “Cool,” I thought, ”I can at least do some window shopping on the way and then stop at Starbucks on the way back.” Yes, priorities! (Ha!)
Oh my, what a pleasant surprise! Dr. Councill (and his very kind staff) set me at ease right away. Although I was 100% correct on the state of my teeth, Dr. Councill provided an economical treatment plan the first day outlining all of the issues (and benefits) without the scolding I was sure I would receive (yes, childhood memories resurfacing).
All my questions: answered thoroughly and patiently. The equipment: state-of-the art. The staff: very attentive.
Thanks again, Dogwood Dental, for turning “the dreaded trip” into a true health investment.
See you at my next check up…
