As a child, our family dentist was brutal and even my brothers will attest to that. But, being kids, our parents just thought we were exaggerating and going to the dentist was an unpleasant necessity. I can remember hiding in a tree, at the age of 6, to avoid going to see mean old Dr. ******. Through the years I did go to the dentist but slacked off when I was in my forties. Fast forward to age 52. The amalgam fillings were cracking my molars. Time to see a dentist. I picked Bethesda Sedation Dentistry and I am very happy I did. The team is up-to-date on the latest dental technology and, more importantly, they are compassionate and care about me. I have moved from Maryland to Colorado and still come back to Bethesda Sedation Dentistry twice a year.
