Vinings Family Dentistry is pain free and caters to Dental cowards like me
I searched several sources including kudzu.com, atlanta.citysearch.com, and insiderpages.com for a Dentist near me. I live in Smyrna, GA. I actually found the Dentist I went to on atlanta.citysearch.com. I had such a great experience that I wanted to share it here.
I have this unnatural fear of Dentists and I'm not one who's big on pain. If you're the same way, I do want to recommend the Dentist that I went to. It was Vinings Family Dentistry and the Dentist was Dr. McMaster.
I had a root canal done there about 6 hours ago now.
They numbed my mouth good and proper and they made sure that I was truly numb before doing the procedure. I was a complete mess, the Doctor and his assist helped calm me down by explaining the procedure. Plus I got to watch TV while waiting for my mouth to get numb. They gave me the remote control to switch channels around. I watched the History channel until the Dental assistant asked if I wanted to watch the Ren and Stimpy DVD that Dr. McMaster brought in. I love Ren and Stimpy so it was a no brainer.
Anyway, during the actual procedure, I elected to put on a headphone and listen to the radio. I wanted to drown out all of the Dental noise. Of course, I kept my eyes closed during the procedure. I have this unnatural fear of Dentists.
As you may know, a Root Canal can take several visits to complete. I didn't even know they were done until Dr. McMaster tapped me on my arm. I'll be back in about 5 days to finish the procedure. This time, I'll be going back with a lot less fear of Dentists. Well, at least with a lot less fear of Dr. McMaster.
There is one downside - Vinings Family Dentistry only takes PPO insurance.
Side note: Their waiting room looks like a living room with a TV, comfy chairs, and even free bottled water. I was nervous just being there but that living room looking waiting room helped calm me down a bit.
