In his nearly 30 years of practicing dentistry, there is one thing that Dr. Christopher Go has found to be true of people. People hate the dentist.
There are so many reasons for this, and we’re sure if you are reading this that you have some of your own reasons. Some people have had a horrific dental experience, while others just don’t like feeling numb. Other people feel that they’ve had unnecessary work done in the past and, therefore, mistrust the dentist altogether. Some individuals are embarrassed that they haven’t been to the dentist in years or are just flat out terrified of needles and drills.
Ah yes, there is also the ever-present financial issue – “I just don’t have enough money to pay for this.”
Dr. Go has heard all these concerns and, trust us, he gets it. He has been blessed with success in the field of dentistry because of his ability to listen to the concerns of each of his patients and move forward in the way that is comfortable for them. While his ultimate goal is providing the highest quality dentistry for each and every one of his patients, Dr. Go understands that there are different ways in which a person may achieve a smile that they are comfortable. For some, they may have the desire and means to get all their work done in a single appointment. For others, their dental needs may have to be addressed over a longer time span.
An unknown yet fascinating fact is that most people usually don’t need much dental work at all.
Dr. Go’s goal, as your Valencia dentist, is to enable you to set aside any fear or mistrust you may have with the dentist. He knows that we can’t be everything to everyone, but that’s not going to stop his practice or him from trying. Once you come into Go Dental, you will see that you’re the most important person to Dr. Go and all the amazing people with whom he surrounds himself. He recognizes how lucky he is to have you as his patient, and he will dedicate himself to your smile and satisfaction.
