I'm middle aged and developed dental-phobia as a child. This almost pathological fear stayed with me until I began seeing Dr. Rowland and staff. I can't say my experiences were totally pain free, but I can say any little flinch is met with additional anesthesia. After a few visits I didn't even need the nitrous oxide! Now *that* is nearly miraculous. Also at the top of the "I can't believe it" list is the fact the office stays pretty close to schedule. No hour-long waits in the waiting room. If you must see a dentist, Dr. Rowland and staff will make you as comfortable possible, physically and emotionally.
