How Patients FeelFAIR
First, a little about me. I am terrified of the Dentist, before Dr. Panoskeâs appointment I hadnât been to the dentist in 17 years. I was referred to Dr Panoski by a coworker because they had told her that they offer sedation dentistry. When I arrived there they told me they did not. I was already there so I continued with the exam. The exam was painless for the most part (no cleanings). The cleaning was anything but painless. Not only was there no sedation, there was no gas and only Novocain after the painful cleaning (no sonic, just metal tools) was done and the cavities needed to be drilled and filled. Short spurts of pain I can handle. Extended pain mixed with fear, mixed with the feel and sound of metal on my teeth I cannot handle.
