I hadn't been to the dentist in years.. ick, I know! I was embarrassed to go, but everyone there was so calm and reassuring I instantly felt ok. The hygienist was informative and walked me through what she was doing (which I thought would be scary but actually made it better) All n' all, I made my second appt to go back and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a new dentist office 🙂
Willow Dental is not like the typical dentists I have gone to. Prior to Willow Dental, and Dr. Loverin, any dentist I have seen has been condescending and dismissive to me and my fear of dentists.
At another dentist, my entire body was literally shaking with fear and I was crying, and his response was basically "get over it". He then had a dental student deal with me to get xrays (multiple attempts as I also have a sensitive gag reflex that only gets worse the more stressed I am). Needless to say, after my many negative experiences with dentists, I only went when I absolutely had to.
I went to Willow Dental because I had lost a chunk of a molar. That appointment revealed A LOT of dental work that needed to be done...root canals, an extraction, multiple deep fillings, crowns and a bridge.
I have used the sedation twice and the "chill pill" (ativan option) once for the longer procedures, but have also had shorter appointments without the use of conscious sedation or "chill pills". Yes, I'm still nervous about dentists and will still shake in the chair at times, but Dr. Loverin and the rest of the amazing staff at Willow Dental get it. They are compassionate and speak to me like a human being. They defer to my need if I need a break to relax and try to get my breathing under control. They adapt to accommodate my fears and gag reflexes as much as they can (they use the smaller xray tray, they take the time to explain things to me, they freeze my mouth as painfree as they can, they ask me how I'm doing and if I need a break). I feel that I matter as a person here vs feeling like an inconvenience at other dentists I've been to.
While I don't think my fear of dentists will ever be completely gone, I definitely feel comfortable enough with Dr. Loverin and the rest of the amazingly awesome staff at Willow Dental to go to them more regularly vs only go when I have an emergency.
I've been visiting Willow Dental Care for over 10 years, and have worked with everyone from Suejee, Dr. Vigneault, Heidi, Dr. Loverin and others. They are fabulous, conscientious, and professional. I highly recommend them!
Dr. Diana Plavsic is such an incredible dentist! I was avoiding much needed dental work, and had nowhere else to go for help but to ask my previous orthodontist. Because I have major dental anxiety, she recommended that I see Dr. Diana’s office as they offer sedation services. It was my first time there, and I can’t tell you how happy I am about the whole experience. I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Diana. She’s so patient, kind, and truly an incredible dentist. I was sedated, had 9 cavities filled at once, two chips, and a potential root canal. I woke up to find all my problems were gone, and that my bite was better than ever before. I didn’t experience any pain, no anxiety, no tears, ...no problems! I feel so taken care of, and am deeply grateful to have her as an amazing dentist. Thank you so much.
I feel truly blessed to have found Dr. Plavsic! I had not seen a dentist in many years due to a very traumatic experience which had left me with severe dental anxiety. Sadly, It resulted in me needing a root canal and several fillings. I found Dr. Plavsic online as I was looking for a dentist who has experience with patients who suffer with anxiety and I am so happy I did!!! Dr. Plavsic and staff were so caring and so reassuring! I honestly could not have had a better experience!!! I opted for conscious sedation after Dr. Plavsic thoroughly went through all options with me and was absolutely thrilled! I had my root canal and fillings done and am going for my second sedation and more work tomorrow. Only difference this time, is that my anxiety is a lot less because I know that I am in the best hands!! Dr.Plavsic and staff have given me an entirely different outlook on dentistry! I highly recommend Dr. Plavsic!! So much in fact that I now also bring my daughter to see her! ❤️
I came to Willow Dental Care with severe dental anxiety, Dr. Diana and ALL of the staff are extremely caring and professional. I had a lot of work done in a short period of time and have officially made Willow Dental my forever dentist. I highly recommend the sedation dentistry as it really takes the edge off of long procedures, 5 star rating for this group!!
i had a great experience at willow dental care. Great staff and environment! always a pleasant expierience coming here
