Betsy works for a litigation firm in Columbus, Ohio and was referred to Stoner Periodontic Specialists by her general dentist because she was suffering from gum disease and pressure in her sinuses. Like many, Betsy’s past dental experiences had not been very pleasant. She grew up with an “old school” dentist when she was younger and had a very bad experience with a periodontist who performed a gum tissue graft. Understandably, it took Betsy’s general dentist a very long time to convince her to come see Dr. Stoner!
Luckily, Betsy finally did call us to schedule a consultation. Betsy admits that she came in with a negative attitude and expected any procedure to be painful. Dr. Stoner determined that Betsy needed laser periodontal therapy to remove the bacteria and diseased tissue causing her gum disease. “I never imagined it could be as easy as it was! Dr Stoner proved me wrong. When I left that day I didn’t have any swelling or bruises. I virtually had no pain. I took pain pills for one day and that was it. This procedure has changed my life. I have not had any pressure in my sinus cavities.”
Betsy describes Dr. Stoner as exuding “warmth, education and professionalism. You feel at home and very secure with him. You can’t leave this office with a bad attitude. This is the peppiest, friendliest, most genuine group of people I’ve ever dealt with.”
Betsy’s advice to others suffering from gum disease – “Don’t put it off. Get it done and find someone who does it right like Dr. Stoner.”
