I’ve been coming to Dr. Drew for almost 10 years. We moved here and previously I hadn’t had an opportunity to establish a relationship with a dentist over a longer term. My job had me moving around different places every two or three years. And this is my first opportunity to start using preventive dentistry versus reactive dentistry, which way I was doing in the past. I started coming to him with a dental emergency and he was so effective that after that I said, “I’m going to continue coming to him and I’m going to listen to him and I’m going to follow his advice on preventive measures, regular cleanings, checkups, et cetera,” and it’s paid off in dividends.
My dental emergency kind of manifested itself in pain, which is normally how I would handle my dental work. I wasn’t really attuned to a preventive dentistry. I was attuned to reactive. I would go if I had discomfort, but other than that, I usually didn’t go to the dentist regularly. I had this discomfort, I reported it to my wife, and then she took the next step to get me the appointment. And it was rather complicated. It was a result of some dental work that had been done previously, that lacked his skills.
He came in, repaired it, laid out a plan. The plan included some implants, which I had never even… I don’t think I’d heard of implants before. So he walked me down the path of obtaining the implants. And basically from that experience, I continued coming back to him. It’s been a few years since I’ve had any really serious problems, primarily because I’m following the preventative dentistry that he’s recommended and the hygienists have recommended. And I can’t say enough about the hygienists. Each time I go in, they might point out a particular part of my mouth where the plaque’s building up, something along those lines and assign me to work in that particular area during the next six months. And in fact, on my last checkup, they recommended that I try using the Waterpik. And that’s the phase that I’m in right now. I’ve added this using the Waterpik to my dental routine.
