From a young age, I have been skeptical of the dental profession. Between being told I needed unnecessary procedures, aggressive pitches for products and services I didn’t want, and a lack of oral hygiene education, I became distrustful and developed anxiety going to the dentist. So I stopped! Thankfully, I’ve never had a cavity and have enjoyed strong, healthy teeth for all of my 36 years. BUT, despite my best efforts, aging is getting the best of me and I’ve noticed that calculus/tartar has recently formed anyway. I decided to finally go to the dentist after 17 years of avoiding it. My children have been patients of Dr Laubmeier and his staff and they had always come home happy, even after fillings and emergency visits (their dad was responsible for taking them because I was a chicken). From the outside, the building looks like an old, small, brick, one story building that you would normally overlook. Don’t let that deter you! Once inside, the office environment is clean, airy, and inviting , while the patient rooms contain comfortable dental chairs that was easy to relax in. I cannot express enough how friendly everyone is, and how quickly I felt at ease with them. You can tell right away that the staff is happy, from the front desk personnel to the hygienists. The care I received was thorough; the team scheduled me extra time because of how long it’s been since my last cleaning, and my dental hygienist Micah explained everything, leading to no surprises for me. Also, Micah handled my initial anxiety perfectly, and after a bit, my heart stopped pounding and I relaxed even with him scraping that gunk off of my teeth lol. After the cleaning, I couldn’t believe the improvement! I had a couple of stains that are completely gone, along with the calculus. Nobody tried to sell me cosmetic whitening services, or other unnecessary products like veneers, etc. Dr Laubmeier came in and was just as easy to talk to as everyone else, and I’m happy to report that I still have a cavity free, healthy mouth. However, I will not go without my regular check ups and cleaning ever again! Dr Laubmeier and his staff have been wonderful dental practicioners for my children, always providing reasonable sound advice, and education. Now I’m happy to say I have found a dental practice where even I feel comfortable and will continue to visit. I highly recommend this practice!
