Am I the only one that finds life difficult at times? We have so many challenges: time, finances, family, health, work, and the list goes on. For most Americans, including myself, we tend to be lazy about the “health section” of our life, overeating, “binge watching” TV, or endless hours on social media. I am one that has definitely fallen into this category at times. I also get bored easily with repetitive exercise routines, doing the same thing over and over. I am the type of person that does well when challenged by a difficult goal or obstacle.
Fitness and community
About five years ago, I decided I needed a challenge to get motivated to exercise and decided to do a half Ironman because it would give me a big challenge and allow me to workout in three different disciplines. First, I needed to get in shape. To get the fitness or health part of my life started, I decided to start with the Tough Mudder, a 10-mile mud run with over 20 physical challenges. It was such a fun event that I have done a few more Tough Mudder and Spartan races. They help me stay in shape and, at the same time, raise money for charities like Wounded Warriors and Team Rubicon. By completing these shorter races, it prepared me and gave me the confidence to tackle the Ironman. When I finished my first Ironman, I felt like I was going to die! I had so many pains where I’ve never felt pain before. However, there was great satisfaction knowing I accomplished something very few people attempt.
My commitment and philosophy of fitness and marathons carries over to my work as a general dentist. I have a sincere passion for dentistry, I absolutely love it. Dentistry allows me to meet so many diverse people that have many different life stories. Being a general dentist also gives me a variety of procedures to perform versus being a dentist specialist, who becomes really good at two or four procedures. I became a dentist so I could help people avoid pain and have a beautiful, more confident smile. I want the best for my patients. I know we all have difficult experiences and obstacles to overcome and focus on. As your dentist, I want your oral health to be one obstacle that is easy as possible to take care of.
At Chandler Dental our motto is “We Make It Easy To Smile.” We can enthusiastically say that this happens in our office. Our team makes understanding your insurance and finances as simple as possible. The team makes you feel welcomed and important. We’ve invested in technology to help the dental procedures go as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
As a child, I was always jealous of a friend whose orthodontist set up the office so they could watch cartoons while they were getting braces put on or adjusted. So, when I first started, it was a priority for my patients to have the option to watch movies and TV shows while they have dental work done. I mounted TVs on the ceiling and have these cool remotes with headphones to help with the noise of the dental handpiece and other background noise. Our patients enjoy the distraction, and it has improved their overall experience.
We know work and family life can be demanding and understand taking time off work to go to the dentist is not always an option so we have early morning and evening appointments to help you work around your schedule. Also, we have three dental hygienist on our team to see your family members simultaneously if you desire. Many patients have found this has helped them keep their mouths a priority, and a decision to miss work or not does not have to be made.
Frequently, our patients request we do all of their dental work and decrease referring to different offices and dentist specialists as much as possible. I have gone on to get extensive training to help our patients get their work done in our office in one visit. Most of our patients like to call us a “one stop shop.” Although, we strive to do as much as we can in our office to help our patients, sometimes we need to bring a dental specialist on our team to help with some difficult cases. We have a great group of specialists we know, love, and trust. We love our patients and want them to feel just as comfortable as they are in our office when visiting the office of our preferred specialists.
I have been married for 12 years and have three kids and a little white Shih tzu. My family is another passion of my life, and I strive to spend as much time with my family as possible. We love to be outdoors, vacation, go on walks and to the park. I feel like our families need to be a number-one priority as we go through this life together.
As a dentist, you’d think getting my kids to have proper oral hygiene would be the easiest thing in the world, but kids are kids. I have found if you make brushing their teeth non-negotiable, just like staying in their car seat, it works best. Making it a fun experience for them with toothbrushes that vibrate and have cartoon characters on them leads to better success too. Also, letting your kids brush their own teeth half the time and then mom or dad finish to ensure their teeth are clean has also helped. It’s impossible to eliminate sugars from our kids diets these days, but if you get them really cleaned each night your kids can be cavity-free.
Your dental health
We can offer same-day crowns with Cerec crown technology! No more impressions or temporary crowns and no second visits. We get your beautiful all-ceramic crown made in just one and a half hours. No more two weeks of a temporary crown that keeps falling off. No more sensitive teeth or food restrictions, and no return appointment. The crowns are strong, well made, and most patients cannot see which tooth was crowned because they are so natural looking and metal-free.
If your smile is holding you back from the life and future you want, if you are putting off going to the dentist because of a previous experience or fear, or if you are still looking for an outstanding dental home for yourself or family, then I believe we have a place for you. I believe you will find our office to be a special and unique place, and you will not find the same experience anywhere else. We believe a professional cleaning does not have to hurt, we believe in world-class dentistry but with old-fashioned relationships. As you look for a dentist, look at our reviews at Yelp and Google, we have fantastic patients leave great testimonies of our team. I know you will love our team as “We Make It Easy To Smile” for you too!
