I hate going to the dentist, I always have. As I got older, I started to realize how crucial it was to go, and I even tried to impress that on my children. I did not do the best job, because I’ve lost several teeth along the way, and I’ve had to have fillings, root canals, and even bridges. I wanted better for my kids, so I made it a point to get them regular checkups, as well as teaching them good dental hygiene.
My youngest is two years old and has some teeth in, so it’s time to start brushing. Because all of my kids now have teeth, I make sure they do a nightly ritual of gathering together to brush their teeth at the same time, this way each one can teach one! I currently use one dental office, and I’m stuck on them, and I don’t plan to change any time in the future.When it comes time for dental checkups or if I need any work for myself, I go to Olney Dental and I use Dr. Eisenberg. This dentist is extremely gentle with my children, and since it’s a family dentistry, we can all go. My husband tends to try and get out of going to the dentist, but I told him that he needs to make a good example for the kids! We’ve all gone together in the past, and it seems to be more beneficial for everyone.
Although most of my tooth issues have been solved, or are being cared for, I still continue to get regular checkups, and also make sure that the work I’ve had done, is still intact. I was eating a rib the other day that was so delicious, I bit into the bone, and thought I heard a crack. I swore that my fillings were going to come out, but after seeing the Olney dentist, I found that I was wrong.
I had x-rays done and it showed that everything was fine, so I felt more at ease. I prefer coming to this dental office over all others, because of the family atmosphere, and also the great dentists.
