Dear Dr. Winick,
It surprises me to say that it was a pleasure having my mercury fillings removed and replaced with safer material. Having gone into the process with much anxiety about how difficult the experience would be, I feel relieved and grateful that it was so easy and relaxing. Your “chairside manner” was friendly and calming, and listening to my choice of music added to the relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. The ear stimulation probably helped as well. It’s wonderful to see that drugs are not necessary to make dentistry relaxing and pain-free. You’ve helped me overcome my fears of extensive dental work, and I’m very grateful for that. My thanks to Masha as well for adding to my comfort and care.
