In addition to being an outstanding dentist in every respect, Dr. Ingber completely cured me of my phobia about having my teeth worked on.
This was not a little phobia. One day my mouth was all full of hardware and a dental dam or two. Ken had been completely gentle, calm, and reassuring, but the leftover phobia from my pre-Dr. Ingber days got the better of me. I claimed I had to go to the bathroom and was halfway down the block--with my mouth full of all this stuff!--before my husband caught up with me and brought me back. This is a true story. Ask Ken.
Then Ken got the idea to use hypnosis on me. I was game, and from the first time Ken hypnotized me, it revolutionized my time in his office. Now I feel perfectly calm, happy, and relaxed. There is absolutely no pain. In fact, we no longer have to use Novocain. I think Ken has done some pretty deep drilling while I was hypnotized, but to tell you the honest truth, all I feel is a little vibration, if anything. Hypnosis has worked far better on me than the Novocain ever did. It's really quite amazing.
The fear completely vanished the very first time we used hypnosis. Now I simply look forward to going in for appointments and seeing my friends, and I always have an extremely positive and pleasant experience. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Ingber and his wonderful staff.
