Q. Do dentists go to the dentist?
Whenever we’re in need of dental work we usually have a colleague or a friend perform the dental treatment.
My friend who is also a dentist checks my mouth out and lets me know any concerns that she sees. It may be a little different for me because I’m probably telling my dentist a lot more than the average patient would. I’m very aware of what’s going on in my own mouth. And I have the knowledge and training to explain things in a different way.
Q. How often do dentists go to the dentist?
Q. Are dentists afraid of the dentist?
I personally don’t have dental anxiety. I’m less nervous about things going on inside my mouth because I understand it very well. And I think that gives me more confidence. I also trust my colleagues because I know how trained and how skilled they are. I know how educated they are. So I don’t have anything to worry about.

Advancements in medical research can help us take better control of our health but only if we have access to the information in an easy-to-follow format. If you would like to learn more, just ask.
