Even before I went to my first visit at D’Amico & Mauck, I went to their dental website. I wanted to get a feeling for the dental staff before I stepped foot into their door, mainly because I was very apprehensive. I have always been that way, thanks to a dentist my mom took me to when I was very young. He did not have the disposition to work on children, and he actually scarred me for the longest time as far as going to the dentist went. When I moved to Aurora, I knew I had to find a new dentist, no matter how much it bothered me.
When I called to make my appointment, I made sure they knew I am extremely anxious over dental visits. I wanted to make sure that this was not a problem, because I did not want to have to go to a lot of different dentists until I found one that could keep me calm. The receptionist assured me that the dentists there would treat me with kid gloves, and that I had nothing to fear at all. She even told me that if they had to do any procedures, they would be able to make me extremely comfortable before even beginning anything.
She was so nice and sweet, and that is the entire reason I picked this dental office. I figured if the dental staff is even half as sweet as she was, then I would definitely be in good hands. I met the dental hygienist as well as the dentist on my first trip there, and I knew that I was going to be okay. Everyone was very gentle, and I honestly believe they treated me no differently than they would have anyone else, even knowing how afraid I was. I definitely got the best dentist on my first attempt here!
