Though many people fear the needles and drills, Dr. Greg Meier says what people are really scared of is being yelled at by their disappointed dentist.
He says, People feel embarrassed or guilty if they miss an appointment, and commonly seek out another dentist so they dont have to deal with getting yelled at. In the past, dentists would reprimand you for not taking care of your teeth with a long lecture.
Instead of cheating on your dentist, Dr. Meier says its better to bite the bullet and make an appointment with your regular dentist before your teeth rot.
For patients who are worried about getting an earful, Dr. Meier has created what he calls a No Lecture Zone Dental Office in his own practice, and promises to never make them feel bad about their busted grill.
