“You asked if I would be interested in giving a testimonial, so here goes....
The older I get the less I'm able to get to the point. So if you don't have the time or patience to read this, don't.
When I first came to Aspenwood Dental, my dentist was Dr. Lisa Yaros. But a change in jobs resulted in a change in dental coverage and choices in dentist, and for years after I kept changing dentist. I eventually found myself having to make a decision. I had lost several teeth by now and when I lost a front tooth I had to do something. I deal with the public and even talk in front of groups. I was embarrassed to open my mouth and heaven forbid if I ever smiled. Even if it meant paying out of pocket (and I am not a wealthy man), I knew what I needed to do. I returned to Aspenwood Dental.
By now, Dr. Lisa Yaros was Dr. Lisa Augustine. After the preliminary x-rays and examination, we sat down to discuss my dental health, what I wanted, and what could be done. Instead of immediately being told of (one size fits all) plan X or Y, Dr. Augustine with x-rays and pictures at hand looked at me and said, "I need to think about this". I needed extensive work, and the thought that it deserved careful consideration was most comforting. I have to say I was impressed. At our next appointment, several options were presented. The plan we decided on would include almost everything from the dental menu: upper dentures, a bridge, fillings and dental implants.
So we got started. During one of the procedures, Dr. Augustine brought up a concern I had mentioned when I had been her patient ten years ago. Let me repeat that. My last dentist tried to pass off a bridge that didn't match my teeth is size, shape, or color. I refused this shoddy work and made them redo it. This is the kind of treatment that kept me out of the dentist chair, and now Dr. Augustine is telling me she remembers a concern I mentioned to her ten years ago! Let me tell you, that kind of care is special.
I look at dental care as consisting of two parts: the procedure, and the result. The procedure starts when you walk in the door. The result comes when you get out of the dentist chair. Neither can be done well without a trained professional team working together. I receive that with Dr. Augustine and her team. When your trust and comfort is so great that you nearly fall asleep in the chair, without sedation, that is saying something.
I am a grumpy, opinionated, old man who is hard to please. I am very pleased with Aspenwood Dental. I'm even smiling again....well, sometimes. “
