I was a bit stunned to find that this office didn’t yet have a Yelp profile, as the services of Dr. Jonathan Clemetson were so professional, I decided to come out of a posting hiatus in order to rate the practice. I’m one of those notoriously touchy patients, having had a few less-than-ideal experiences in the chair. In need of a serious cleaning, x-rays, a few fillings and an implant, I finally visited his office at the strong suggestion of a dear friend. I’m so glad I did. Firstly, Dr. Clemetson’s staff is caring, well-humored and deeply professional. No waiting around for my appointment, no fuss. My x-Rays were taken with great care to avoid discomfort, and clear photographs to assist in the following discussion, in layperson terms, with the doctor regarding the condition and needs of my teeth. That talk was clear and open, with a great deal of emphasis placed on preventive, rather than reparative, care. As Dr. Clemetson said, “I want you to spend more time in my hygienist’s chair, than in my chair.” Advice was provided about better methods for cleaning/brushing at home, including how to determine what floss is best for me. Thorough, to say the least! A very good point to mention is that this practice believes in comfort being just as important as effective procedure. All methods of sedation are available, from nitrous oxide (that’s for my level of wimpishness) to full anesthesia (for those on the serious end of the spectrum). It’s getting difficult enough to find dentists who still offer NO, so this, combined with the overall office philosophy, was a huge positive sign for me. I’m scheduled for my cleaning next week, and those pesky fillings are soon to follow. And frankly, it feels great to look ahead to both with no sense of dread- I sense that I’m in very good hands. Hell, even that long-delayed implant doesn’t scare me, any more. I’m just so grateful to have found, at last, a dentist and staff that I’m entirely comfortable with. Here’s to happy teeth, and their happy owner!
