#1 is helping extremely fearful patients receive the care and attention they need. I feel horrible that people in our profession have caused so much pain and I believe that you and I deserve better. Many of my patients suffered a traumatic experience in their youth where they were ridiculed by a dentist, he/she continued treatment when they weren’t numb, or even held them down against their will. This is just so sad to me.
Our goal at Fidler on the Tooth is to help you overcome barriers at your own pace.
Do I think we can eliminate fear and become their favorite place to visit? No, but we do provide an atmosphere where you can share your fear with us and not be judged for it. It is our hope to replace some of those bad memories with good ones.
#2 is a bit emotional...For example: Think about your friends or family—when you see their great big smile, it just reminds you of what that person means to you deep down inside. Now, when you give someone their smile back, that reaction can be overwhelming.
If you can imagine yourself spending the last 15 years (or more) embarrassed by the result of a broken smile, then you can understand why many of them cry when they first witness their new look. Out of gratitude, amazement, disbelief, or wonder, whatever the reason—it’s why I get out of bed every day.

Couldn’t have been better! I even referred my wife… .” Brett P, April 2014
