As a child, I had a dental trauma from an accident. Unfortunately, during that treatment period, I did not experience the positive side of dental care. It set a pattern for the future. My solution became to live in fear and regret – even when my teeth were fine. I did not go to the dentist very often. I stayed in denial as I believed that not choosing professional care would not affect my teeth because I always performed daily maintenance. What I truly was blind to was the consequences this would have on both my physical and emotional well being. I did not know how to move out of this paralyzing fear. Two years ago, I found myself (once again) at a dental office that was not proactive. I started to research and discovered the BFD website. One phrase caught my attention – “We are a guilt-free, no-lecture dental office”. That concept encouraged me to call for a consultation. I had new hope that this time would be different, as the woman I spoke with genuinely listened to my challenges. At my consultation, with Dr. G & Kristin, they offered me options. But first, and more importantly, they asked me what I wanted. Seriously? No previous dental office had ever asked me that question. It was then that I knew I was on the right path to a solution. And today? I smile with confidence and am restored with the ability to enjoy eating. Teeth Tomorrow® and their partnership with BFD exhibits a commitment to detail for the individual patient. The fitting is meticulous and looks natural. I am grateful to all the staff at BFD/Hamburg as they support me to become healthy. Hopefully, you will trust in my positive testimonial and give yourself the prospect to move through your fears and to find your solution, too! –January 2020- Donna King
Okay. Well, she probably has the best bedside manner that I've ever experienced with any kind of doctor or dentist. Again, she's very caring and nurturing, and that comes through in everything that she does. I had a pretty big procedure done, so she was present every single appointment. It took several appointments to get the entire thing done. She was present every single time, put me at ease. The tone of her voice and the way that she explains things in a lot of detail to me really put me at ease and made me feel confident moving forward each and every time.
I just really enjoyed the time that we spent together. She would ask me about my personal life and genuinely cared about what I had to say. It wasn't just something that she would ask. She has a genuine care for her patients, and I absolutely loved that.
I was terrified of going to a dentist. I hadn't been to a dentist in probably 15, 16 years. The last dentist I went to, I had a bad experience. So it just terrified me and I had a lot of anxiety about it. One night I laid down and I was like, "God, please send me somewhere." And it was like, the most natural thing ever was. The next morning, Beaumont Dental come into my mind. And I don't know if it was a commercial I saw, what it was, but I picked up the phone. I talked to a guy, I told him my issues. I was like, "I don't know if y'all can keep me in there or what, but I'm going to try." He just thought, "Okay."
Well, I didn't hear back, because it's when COVID was going really rampant. So I went on vacation and all that vacation I was in so much pain. I mean, I couldn't enjoy my kids, anything. That next morning I called, I talked with them, and they got me in here within a week. And I came in. I was nervous, but after five minutes in there, they could have done anything and I would have been calm.
Well, I had some back teeth that was neglected. I had cavities. I'm a one time a day brusher. Whenever the dentist was talking to me, he was like, "Do you take good care of your teeth?" I was like, "You see them. I'm a one time a day brusher." And I had some issues up here I didn't like. I couldn't smile. I wouldn't smile. Like I said, you go into the room. And what would scare me is whenever I would go into a dental office, you'd see all the needles, all the medicine. You'd just see everything.
I walked into the room and it was just like going into a regular room. The dental chair was only thing recognizable. Tracy, she talked with me and we sat there. Everything she did, she told me. And I was that comfortable. The dentist came in, did what he needed to do. And I didn't panic. I didn't run away. And then, I ended up having dental implants and that had been a dream of mine. But like I said, the fear, it was overwhelming. And I couldn't do it, but they just made you feel just so calm and at peace. I can't explain it, but it was like I said, Tracy, the morning that I came in. It was like within 30 minutes, it was like I knew I was... Well, within five minutes, I knew I was going to be fine. But after about 30 minutes, I knew I was going to follow through with it and do everything they needed me to do.
