Kelley – Patient Testimonial for Dr. David Smith at Really Smile – Dentistry in Indianapolis, IN


Well, we moved to Fishers. I needed to find a new dentist and that was a referral from neighbors to go to Dr. Smith. Dr. Smith is very friendly, kind, and caring. And that’s important to me because I have a real issue with dentists and I always have. So it was important for me to be with somebody who was caring. Dr. Smith — he goes over what he’s going to do in detail and he takes great lengths to — they take your blood pressure, they check and make sure that everything is where it should be, and they explain everything before they do it. And they give you, also, choices. I don’t have to do something if I don’t want to do it. I’m the one who’s in control and I enjoy that. I like that. Well, I have trouble breathing through my nose and I have a gag reflex, so I am not an easy patient when it comes to dentistry. I joke around and say I’d rather have a baby than go to a dentist. He takes care of me four times a year to prevent that, so I do not have to have anything major done. I have a couple of teeth that are very sensitive and they know exactly what teeth they are and they make sure that they use special tools on them so that they don’t cause me any pain. They really take extra steps to make sure that I’m not going to feel any pain while I’m here. The NuCalm is — I’m not technical, but you just receive a little pill before you go in there that you put under your tongue and you let it dissolve and then they put probes or something behind your ears and then headphones. And then you’re listening to a certain kind of music that helps you relax. It opens up your brain to relax and then time just goes and you don’t realize it’s going and I almost fell asleep, which, that’s just amazing for me to fall asleep at a dentist. The whole office is very calming and soothing and relaxing. And once, I did sit in their chair — they have a massage chair. That was — they just take the extra steps to make sure that you’re gonna actually enjoy the experience, which is shocking to even say that you could enjoy a trip to the dentist but you can now. You can. Dr. Smith means a lot to me, as well. But Beth — I think you’re closer to your dental hygienist than you are to your dentist because she is well, she’s right in your face for hours and she spends a lot more time. And she is just — oh my goodness — so soothing and caring. She understands my special needs and if I’m having trouble breathing or I feel like I’m going to gag, she just really backs off and relaxes me and calms down. It really has — she’s a God-send because she just I haven’t ever had a dental hygienist ever that’s been willing to use special tools to make sure that she doesn’t hit those sensitive spots. She just really takes good care of me. She’s incredible. I don’t think my insurance covers Dr. Smith anymore and I don’t care. That’s how important it is to me. It doesn’t matter to me that insurance doesn’t cover it. I would never, ever switch because that’s how much they’ve made my life easier. I can’t imagine having to go through another dentist and have them get to know me, learn all my issues. The whole experience is just wonderful. Wonderful. And I’ve never — I’m no longer afraid to go to the dentist anymore. It’s huge. It’s huge. I mean, that is the biggest fear in my life is going to the dentist and he’s taken that away.
