Mike suffered from a severe overbite and underwent a full-mouth reconstruction to restore the health, function, and appearance of his smile. As Mike suffers from dental anxiety, Dr. Mortensen utilized oral conscious sedation to calm his nerves prior to treatment.
I am Mike Dickson [SP], and I came to Dr. Mortensen for a full mouth
reconstruction because of an overbite issue I had. It became so severe that
any temperature variation really created an issue with me being able to eat
So, the prior dentist I had was a little unsympathetic with my fear of
dentistry and other issues that I had. I figured I would come by and talk
to him and see what he had to say, what he could do for me.
My first impressions were of how nice the whole staff was and how relaxed
the general atmosphere here was compared to what I was dealing with.
Relaxed me right off the bat with my apprehensions I had on dentistry. My
anxiety on dentistry in general was so severe that I would lose sleep days
prior to just a simple cleaning and a checkup. That was not a comfortable
situation for me at all.
I knew there was something better out there as opposed to where I was, so
that was the initial factors that brought me to Dr. Mortenson. What I liked
about Dr. Mortensen was his professionalism, and he told me everything he
could do for me, what he couldn't do for me, and just totally professional.
His sedation process consists of a couple of pills that you are requested
to take an hour and a half or so, before you get here on your first
procedures. And to me that was great, I literally could not remember
anything. I woke up in the afternoon from a semi-conscious state, and I
never remembered anything.
My wife said I did good. She said everybody at the staff here did
wonderful. She stayed with me the whole time and it was just a totally
different experience than anything I had ever had in the past.
My satisfaction of the job done, the procedures that had taken place, I am
so totally satisfied, being able to eat regular. I have had no issues what
so ever. I can eat whatever I want to eat and no problems what so ever.
Anytime that I've ever had an opportunity to recommend, "Here's his number
give him a call. You won't be unhappy at all."
