Reviews are usually the first thing people look at when choosing just about anything. Nothing is as illuminating as hearing from someone who already has “been there and done that.” This can be especially important when choosing a dentist. You want one who has a line of people ready to sing their praises. What does a good review really mean, though? How did someone’s experience really impact them? Today, we’re going to look at some of the testimonials for your dentist in Pomona, NY, Dr. Peter Auster, to see what 5-star dentistry really means to people.
First, we’ll start with a local opera singer. As you can imagine, the quality of her smile comes up constantly as she’s performing and teaching, and she reached out to Dr. Auster after not getting the results she wanted from another dentist:
“I came to Dr. Auster because I had a lot of problems with my teeth. I had a gap in the front, discoloration, and some ridges and indentations. I didn’t like the way I looked when I smiled. It seemed that no matter how much I cleaned and brushed my teeth, they didn’t look nice. I came from another dentist that I thought was just tremendous, but I was surprised at how modern the office was at Cosmetic Dentistry Associates, especially the digital imaging that allows me to see every small detail of every tooth in my mouth. Dr. Auster has all the latest technology, a great personality and best of all, my procedures never hurt. There is no pain. I came to him for cosmetic dentistry but I was so impressed that I have all my dentistry done there now.”
This shows that even if you are reasonably satisfied with your current dental care, you might be missing a whole other echelon of quality. Ronni now feels more confident, and this helps her singing and her students every day.
A real-estate developer, Brian had bad experiences with dental care throughout his young life, and reached out to Dr. Auster when he wanted to get a second opinion. What he got made a real impression on him:
“I have been in the dentist’s chair a lot over the course of my life. I had braces when I was younger and they did a very bad job – pulled four of my teeth – then my bite was off. My teeth were dull, the color was bad, I had caps on many of my teeth and they were failing. Now, thanks to Dr. Auster, my teeth are more consistent and I am more comfortable. I feel more confident and my teeth look natural.”
Even if you need a lot of dental work, the right professional can take care of the job, and renew your confidence in going to the dentist.
We conclude today with Joyce, a retired registered-nurse who had a problem many people do: fear of going to the dentist. All it took was the right practice to stop her anxiety:
“I grew up in the West Indies, where, instead of treatment, we had extractions. Even for simple decay, one would have an extraction instead of a filling. Not surprising, I have had a fear about even the idea of dentistry. Because of my dental history, I had my four front teeth removed with only a small amount of numbing. Very little pain was felt.
In contrast, I never feel afraid with Dr. Auster. He makes sure you have everything to make you comfortable. I have even fallen asleep in the chair! Because of my background as a nurse, I have always questioned and challenged Dr. Auster, and each time he answers carefully and offers alternatives. The dental team is great. Coming for a dental visit is like going home.”
The right practice can help even the most fearful patient feel calm and welcome. This is the type of care that not only helps teeth, but gives peace of mind as well.
What It Means
These experiences go beyond simply dentistry. The right doctor, the right practice, and the right environment has a real affect on people. You can see it in their smiles, both when they come into and leave the office. This is what a 5-star review really means, and what choosing the right dentist can do for you.
