The dentist made me feel comfortable before the procedure and explained all the steps that were going to be done. He did a pretty good job.

I was unhappy with how I was treated during this appointment. First, the doctor walked in a fist bumped me, which is very unprofessional. I am not a child, and I do not want to be treated as one. The assistant did not ask me how I was feeling (physical feeling of tooth pain), she assumed I was feeling a sort of way, did not listen to anything I had to say, she just kept on her speech. Neither the assistant nor the doctor listened to my pain/discomfort, told me how I was feeling instead of asking me, and I had to reiterate 3 times that I wanted to be put under anesthesia and that I wanted all the wisdom teeth out in one surgery; the doctor and assistant kept beating around the bush and had no empathy when I said I was experiencing a lot of discomfort, and that Id have to wait until late January to have this taken care of. The doctor then chose to fist bump again on his way out, which again, was not professional. I wont be doing my surgery with this doctor.
