The Dentists Ultimate Need is Trust

I have a lot of dentists through out the years. Besides of not brushing more and taking care of it, I have also regrets of not knowing the one who really takes good care of my teeth. This is bad for me because I am not an expert when it comes to oral diseases and right dental hygiene.  Though researching in the net make so much quicker and easier to know al those things, I still have to put my trust to the one who’s knowledgeable on it.

I could still remember my first visit in the dental clinic. I have to be there to get a replacement crown on my tooth. After the removal and replacement of it, my root canal and gums had gotten infected after three hours passed. Because of that bad experience, I took a lot of effort just to find a better dentist who has the skills in terms of the therapy of my root canal and gentle in repairing of it. A dentist where I can sense patience about giving each of his/her patients the best care he/she can, and most important is how genius he/she is by knowing what I would need to get fixed in the future.

According to the author of “Stress Free Life”, “humor is perhaps the best antidote to stress when you laugh out loud, you will find your body, mind and heart relaxing!” What if you can’t laugh out loud because you’ve got a toothache? Or maybe you can’t laugh because you don’t have a nice tooth? Does it mean humor is still the best pain reliever? I guess having no knowledgeable dentist can add stress in our daily lives.

It is so easy to blame them for the bad stuff. I looked in the mirror and realize that half the times I can’t even put trust the person who’s knowledgeable in the field of dentistry. Why should I distrust them? According to the American Dental Association’s (ADA’s) Commission on Dental Accreditation, for four academic years, they studied in the laboratory of dentistry including anatomy, microbiology, biochemistry, and physiology. And under the supervision of the licensed dentist, they treat patients in dental clinics even they are still in their two years of school. So when it comes to learning and experiences, I guess there is no reason for me to doubt in their ability of treating oral diseases and maintaining dental hygiene.
