I have always been definitely afraid of the dentist and needed a good bit of work done over the past several years, and always put it off because I did not like going to the dentist.
When we moved here to Houston, I came and I checked out Dr. Burch’s office since I was right down the road, and from day one, everybody made me feel extremely comfortable. I have never had a doctor or a dentist that is as compassionate and caring as Dr. Burch. I mean to the point that each time I’ve had any kind of dental work done, he’s called me the next day or later in the evening just to check in, make sure there’s no problems. The first time that I had any major work done, we tried the oral sedation, which I’d had bad luck with in the past, and everything was smooth sailing, and so that kind of sealed the deal for me.
I have had some genetic issues with gum disease and other problems that have required a good bit of work, most of which probably could have been avoided if I had gone in a little sooner. However, between setting up plans that worked financially, scheduling times that worked with our schedules, I have been able, in just a handful of appointments, to get majority of the stuff done that I needed to, making me a whole lot more confident with not only the appearance of my smile but knowing that the teeth that I have are going to last a whole lot longer than if I had not had the work done. At 35, I don’t really have any interest in moving into a full set of dentures. Knowing that I was able to get the work done here and get it done at my pace has made me a whole lot more confident about the longevity of my oral health in general.
