Getting a Frightened Child Comfortable with Going to the Dentist

Our little girl was terrified of the dentist. I don’t know why. We have tried several dental offices, and she is scared at every one. We started asking other parents about the best dentists in Denver, and we found one that is working out very well for us. They go out of their way to make scared patients less afraid. There is no perfect fix for every person who is afraid to go to the dentist. I know someone who has to take a sedative before going in for any procedure other than an exam and cleaning. Our little girl just cries and cries and it makes it hard for the dentist to do an examination. Then they sometimes get frustrated. Not anymore. We found a dentist that is very patient with scared patients.

The dentist told us that some positive experiences help change the way a scared patient experiences dental appointments. (more…)

How Getting a Teenagers Smile Fixed Changed Her Outlook

My wife and I adopted a daughter. She had it rough in her formative years. She was blossoming like a beautiful flower now that she was our daughter. I would get sad and happy at the same time when she would say how no one wanted her but we did. She was crying one day and it took a while to figure out the cause. It was her teeth. She wanted a smile like the other girls have at school. That was easy. Over summer vacation we had her visit a Denver cosmetic dentist to get her teeth to be the best they could be. Poor dietary habits bordering on malnutrition caused damage to her teeth before we adopted her. She did not need braces, but she did need some other work.

The Denver cosmetic dentist we took her too was surprised at how straight and even her smile and bite was. (more…)

I Finally Finished the Car

I had been fixing up this car for a long time, doing as much as I could when time and money allowed. Of course I had to get the engine rebuilt by someone who knew how to do that. It was a Peoria chiropractor who recommended that guy. When I went there about three months ago I had some lingering back pain, from working on the farm probably. At any rate he had an old Ford Sunliner and I asked him about it. He told me that it was not a real Sunliner, but someone had cut the top off a similar old Ford. (more…)

Forced to Sit on the Side

The baseball games that my family plays at the local park are no joke. Everyone is competing as if they are on a major league baseball team, trying to hit home runs all over the place and pitch like they’ve got cannons for arms. I can’t even consider myself above all of this, because I can get into the game pretty hard when I’m on the pitcher’s mound. Recently I was pitching one of the best games of my life, and I pulled a muscle in my back, resulting in me needed a chiropractor in Redding. It was quite the shame because my team was winning and I was on the verge of pitching a complete no hitter.

As my family took me to the chiropractor, all I could talk about was how I was winning the game and requesting that they take me back to the pitcher’s mound so I could finish it. They thought I had lost my mind from sitting in the heat for too long. The injury to my back meant that I wouldn’t be playing in any baseball games for quite a while, putting me on the sidelines.

We Went Riding in the Desert

There were a bunch of us out there, but not all of us were completely sober. I was riding my dirt bike and I was having a really great time, but then this guy came up on me on a big four wheeler. It was one of the ones that cost you about as much as the first five cars that I owned. The guy knew that I was in a position to sue his butt I suppose. He tried to act like it was my fault, but there were witnesses. He gave a chiropractor in Beverly Hills card to me and told me to send him the bill. (more…)
