If you are looking for a dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Millen at Newbury Dental (a Branch of Gentle Dental). He is an outstanding dentist.
When I first starting going to see Dr. Millen about four years ago I was extremely scared of getting dental work done, and I had a mouth full of problems that needed to be addressed.
During my first appointment Dr. Millen took a thorough look at my mouth and explained each dental issue to me in detail. Knowing I had to take funds into consideration, he prioritized the issues based on their importance to the general health of my mouth. It could have been overwhelming, but he made the process less scary by explaining the need to address one issue at a time. He got his point across about the importance of getting my mouth healthy without freaking me out.
I remember feeling pretty nervous about my first several appointments because of my fear of the pain of dental work, but his gental technique and concern for my comfort level put me at ease and I was able to let go of my fear relatively quickly. Because he is good at what he does, the pain factor has always been minimal.
A lot of the work I had involved procedures that resulted in crowns. Dr. Millen makes excellent temporary crowns. He has an artistic ability to make a temporary crown look and feel real. I??ve never had a dentist make such great temporary crowns before.
Over the years he has continued to narrow down my list of dental issues. I think I only have one minor issue left. I have been very happy with the way he has addressed each issue individually and has taken the time to make sure each problem has been taken care of completely before going on to the next. He has completely reversed my fear of dentists and dental work, and he has helped me understand the importance of keeping my mouth healthy. I appreciate it.
Dr. Millen??s assistant Sonia and the people who run the office are talented as well. They are friendly and happy to answer questions or explain details.
If you are looking for a good dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Millen and Newbury Dental (a branch of Gentle Dental) on Newbury Street in Boston.
