I came to Dr. Turner my first visit after about 10 years of not seeing a dentist at all, from the time I was in my childhood to now. While I was here on the first visit, we were doing something very plain and ordinary taking X-rays. Due to the anxiety that I had, as well as all of the things that led up to me from my childhood years and having fillings done without any shots, I passed out for about 5 seconds and gave everybody a good scare. After that visit, they continued on to show me how well they take care of people, and how much I can trust them. It wasn't about how many people could get through the chair, it was about was I comfortable, was I doing okay, and was my health being cared for, and did I understand what was going on. One of the things that he had available was Invisalign and it really worked well for me and my lifestyle and what I do, so the option for Invisalign was perfect for me. We put a plan together, and he helped me, guided me through what needed to be done, and where to go from there, and how long that was going to take, and what the whole process was going to be before we really even got started. I've now been back here for 18 years. They've always been very patient, kind, caring, and anything that they do if it's I'm uncomfortable, they're concerned about, and that to me is invaluable.
