I love my dentist Dr. Swarts at Kimball and Beecher. The dental assistants are awesome, too - everyone is so friendly and kind. I hate going to the dentist from 'way back to childhood but I'm getting over that because there is absolutely no reason for be afraid of my dentist. One of the first things I had to have done was have a big, cracked up, painful (because I avoid dentists) tooth pulled. They were amazing at putting me at my ease and the procedure was quick and essentially painless. Shots for pain-killer don't hurt as much as I remember them hurting apparently. That's great. I even went back for a cleaning 6 months after and am weighing my options to replace the tooth - quite an change from avoiding the dentist.
