I recommend The Dental Care Center on Mercer University Drive

I don't like to go to the dentist.  Okay, that's a serious understatement.  I HATE going to the dentist.  But in recent years with my parents "good teeth" started to break and loose fillings I have decided that it is necessary even if I hate it.

I had some dental trauma as a child and I had a horrible root canal as an adult.  After I got my crown I waited 15 years before going back to a dentist and I really didn't like the dentist I did go to see after that.

But in the past few years my husband has needed some major dental work including some oral surgery and he likes his dentist, so recently I gave them a try and I have to admit it was the best experience I've ever had in a dental chair. 

I went to The Dental Care Center  in Macon Georgia on Mercer University Drive.  I readily admit I'm a pansy when it comes to the dentist.  And maybe that is an understatement also.

And when the hygienist saw that I brought my husband to the room with me to have my teeth cleaned she asked if there was a problem.  When my husband burst into laughter and said that I might need a little prompting to open my mouth.  I asked if she could just knock me out and clean my teeth, but unfortunately that's not an option for just a cleaning.  BUT, she did offer a spray on analgesic and that was a first for me.  Of course it's two days later and my gums hurt, so I would have liked it more if she'd let me bring that little bottle home with me, but over all I got my teeth cleaned and it wasn't SO bad.  She asked if I'd be back in 6 months and while I'm not up for THAT often I may go back in a year.

The only down side to my fondness of the new dentist is location.  They are located about 45 minutes from Lake Sinclair.  Of course there is an upside to the location, they are right next door to Macon Mall and right down the street from Sam's Club, so I also got some shopping done.

So if you, like me, are not so fond of going to the dentist.  You might want to give The Dental Care Center a try.  It's really not THAT bad.

Hi Tammy, a recommendation for the Dental Care Center by someone like you is priceless! There are so many people who have had bad experiences and just don't go anywhere- ever! but we only get one set of (adult) teeth, so we have to take care of them- might as well find a great place to do that!

Hi Tammy,  Don't feel alone. I also hated to go t the dentist and kept putting it off until I had a toothache and there was nothing he coud do to me that could feel worse, so I went.  I ended up with a root canal that was way easier that the horror stories that were stored away in my memory from other tramatic patients.  Now, going to the dentist is a piece of cake. I still don't like the cardboard they put in your mouth to take X-rays.  You know. The ones that gouge into your gums while they say "Hold Still for an hour and a half", while I take an X-Ray. OK, Now let's do the other side!

As many others here have said, you are not alone in disliking going to the dentist. When I was young I would shake in my shoes as my Mom had me wait by her in the waiting room for them to call my name. Thankfully, I've been able to get over this problem. Going to the dentist is no longer something I dread, and I have been able to prevent a lot of problems from happening or getting worse by being on top of my yearly dental visits. http://www.owocdentalgroup.com
