The Caring Dentist
I was very scared to go to a dentist again after going to Western Dental. That was a horror story all on it's own! However after reading some reviews for Citrus Dental and looking over their web page, I made an appointment to see them for a tooth that had broken a day before. I was so nervous to go in as I did not want to go through the pain I had from the dentists at Western Dental. Everyone at Citrus Dental could see I was scared and really cared about that. I was treated with kindness and understanding. Everyone from the receptionist to the X-ray tech went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and felt safe while at their office. They offer you pillows, water, a movie to watch if their is any wait. Don't take that wrong, I am not saying they are so slow you have to watch a movie, but if there is a wait they offer you one.
The office is state of the art. I had to have one broken tooth fixed and one crown from WD replaced because of the bad job WD did when putting it on. Citrus Dental do all the fitting by computer so it is very fast. They will work with you on payment plans for low income people such as myself. I saw Dr. Gorman who was great, came in and talked to me for a few minutes about the weather and such and joked around with me to put my mind at ease as he could see how nervous I was. He works with you and you are treated like a person not a "cow" or "number" to be herded in, treated and released. I really cannot say enough about these people. Dr. Gorman took the time to explain all he was going to do for me and to my teeth and checks on how you are doing the whole way through the treatment he is giving you. If you need to take a break, or a few, he is fine with that. He is also very funny and that helped me a lot. Again, he works with you and is a very caring Doctor.
This was not a one time thing, I have gone back for a fallow up and one adjustment and I was treated with the same care and respect each time as I was the first time. When you walk out of their office you are not forgotten, Dr. Gorman even called me at home a few days later to check to make sure I was doing OK and or needed anything. I am no longer afraid to go to the Dentist and will go back to Citrus Dental for any and all my future dental work!!
