I have searched for a dentist for awhile lately, doing research in the local dentist. unfortunately my last dentist moved. He was sensitive to my anxiety I had at the dentist, pain tolerance and TMJ . My first appointment I was very expressive on my sensitivity and especially the difficulty I have with tmj. The hygienist, Adamere , was sensitive to this and checked in throughout my treatment to make sure I was ok or needed a break. When I returned and was scheduled with Dr. Golasko for cavity fillings she was not sensative to my situation. After arriving anxiously on time for my appointment the receptionist informed us that the doctors were running late. I waited 30 mins , while the receptionist called the Catonsville office several times wondering where the doctors were . In my profession , customer service is key. I would have expected a phone call that she was going to be late. While in treatment , it seemed that when I asked for more novacain it was an unbelievable request. Like in my chart and what I expressed to the doctor , I am anxious at the dentist and I usually take more novacain to numb my mouth. She also left me with a bracket separating my teeth (which was digging into my gum and painful) along with my mouth forced open while she did a consult in between filling my cavities. This was unnecessary discomfort and pain. Not once did she make me feel at ease or explain what she was doing throughout he procedure. Nevertheless, after spending a lot of cash at this dentist , it was not worth the pain and discomfort.
This dentist does not recognize your long questionnaire thy have you fill out on your first visit about your problems and experience, and certainly does not have the angel touch. I hope that this will be reviewed and other patients will experience the personal dental care that fits their needs and comfort.
