Patient Review By Naomi T
I had a strong fear of going to the dentist, but after I lost a filling I realized that I had to do something about it. Recognizing my fear, the entire staff at Porto Fino supported me with soothing words and a strategy that involved gentle progress and anesthetic. Following the cap of my unfilled tooth, the real work had to be done - getting me to come to the dentist more often than once a decade. Here, my hero, Sarah D’Andrea, RDH, played a key role. With firm but gentle guidance and some ether, she brought me through a two stage complete cleaning. Today - was my first routine visit. I went with some fear, because I knew that I was not scheduled for anesthetic; however, the fear was misplaced. My gums are much healthier than they were, due to the previous cleaning and home-care guidance, and the work that needed to be done was soothed by good music and excellent professional care from Sarah. I scheduled my next appointment already, and I am not afraid at all. In fact, I look forward to it.
