I took our young son to a dentist in a shopping plaza. It was one of those franchise places. I was not impressed at all. Our son was now more afraid of the dentist than he was before. A few months later when I told a friend about the experience she recommended we go to Coden. They are specialists in orthodontics and do general dentistry too. She is an older friend of mine and went there to get botox to reduce the wrinkles around her mouth. Her husband got a dental implant. She said they are very patient and reassuring to those who are afraid of going to the dentist.
I scheduled a cleaning for our son and myself. I told the office that I needed to change his perception of the dentist office. They agreed and told me I should go first and let him see how teeth are cleaned. It worked very well. He could hardly wait to have his done by the friendly and pretty hygienist. She had a wonderful smile and a really great way with children. I think our little boy left the dentist office with a crush on the girl who cleaned his teeth. Instead of dreading visits to the dentist, he now asks when he can go back.
We have been with them for everything. My husband got a cavity filled. I had a cap fall off and they fixed it. Our son is now likely going to need braces, and Coden is where he is going to be going to get them. Once you find a really good dental office, you stick with them. It is nice to have a place to go that the whole family can use. Also, they do everything from filling cavities to putting in implants. There is no need to go somewhere else.
