Were you a fan of the dentist growing up!? I can say with little hesitation that I definitely was not! I never enjoyed the discomfort of cleaning my teeth, and I especially couldn’t stand when they used their pick to check for cavities. I absolutely dread it although I know how vital it is to keep your teeth clean and healthy, especially in my job as a blogger.
If I’m being honest, I haven’t been the ‘best’ about keeping up with my regular cleanings, and my avoidance has been somewhat on purpose. (Insert covered eyes emoji) Not only because I never enjoyed my visits, but also because the appointments always seemed to feel like an inconvenience. When I moved back to Charlotte after college I visited several dentists looking for a good fit with no luck. Until now.
I had the pleasure of visiting Pearl Dentistry this Summer, and it’s been a complete game changer when it comes to my opinion of the dentist. I’m sure you’re thinking, “okay, what’s the big deal?” Pearl Dentistry is a new modern and exciting form of density that I’ve never experienced before. Their tag line is ‘dentistry reimagined’ because they believe a visit to the dentist should be enjoyable and rewarding.
When I first walked in the door I was blown away by their modern sitting room which included several TVs, gorgeous modern decor, and a pool table for keeping your mind off the appointment. When the hygienist escorted me back, I couldn’t believe how clean and updated the facilities were.
And wait, for it. Once I sat down in the chair, I realized every appointment room is equipped with an entertainment system complete with a digital remote control and beats headphones. I got to watch TV during my appointment AND pick my own show. This really helped me keep my mind off all the work they were doing in my mouth during the appointment. I didn’t even hear any of the drilling, which is a huge plus in my book!
Thankfully, I didn’t even notice any of the discomfort I had experienced at previous dentist appointments. It’s an odd analogy, but the complete experience felt like I stepped into a Miami club ha! You’ll understand when you visit yourself. It’s definitely a new, hip form of dentistry: reimagined!
I’m sure you’re thinking, that’s great, but what about your visit with the actual dentist. Dr. Jenny was amazing (They go by their first names which gives it so much more of a personal feel/relationship). She made me feel very comfortable during the appointment, despite having a long history of previous dental work. I could feel she truly studied my x-rays and had a lot of knowledge about my teeth. We discussed ways to improve some of the problem areas in my mouth, and I have a one-in-one consultation with her again this week to get more information! You can tell Pearl Dentistry truly cares about their patients.
The experience makes me so happy because it feels like I’ve finally found my dentist home after months, even years of searching. If you’re in the same boat, and have been on the search for a dentist that will make you feel comfortable and relaxed, Pearl Dentistry is definitely the place for you.
