[quote=“Tigerman”]I’ve looked at all of this thread… but am asking to see whether anyone has any more recent suggestions.
I need to see a dentist. I HATE dentists.
I’ve had major surgeries several times in my life and generally deal very well with pain. But, I fear and LOATHE pain associated with dental work.
I may need a root canal. Can anyone recommend a good dentist in the Da’an area who is not afraid to do pain-free work?
Thanks in advance.[/quote]
Not in the Da-an area, but the dentist I use is a nice guy. ABC or close to that, went to Yale, UPenn, speaks English and all that. The clinic has a variety of state-of-the-art facilities including waterlase, full-mouth x-rays with the rotating machine, screens at the chair to show you the x-rays. Dr. Huang is easy to talk to and patient, even when I’ve been extremely squeamish (I HATE dentists too, and let several of my previous fillings just fall out…) He’s uh, a very accommodating and non-threatening dentist. Which is exactly what I want. You could probably get local anesthetic each time if you don’t want to feel it at all, I guess. But that will be necessary for a root canal anyhow if it needs to be done.
Got a crown + 3 or 4 cavities re-filled here in the past 3 months, and none of the experiences were too bad (even for a whiny crybaby like me).
Now my teeth are as good as new(ish) and I’m ready for some braces! Yum.
Doctor’s name is 黃柏翰 醫師 Huang Bo-han
