“First time I came into his office, I was in such a bad shape. It was after I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and discovered that I was chronically mercury poisoned. I was in a lot of pain in my throat, neck, shoulders, fingers, knees, ankles and feet. I had no idea what it would be like to go through replacement of all the “silver” (mercury) fillings in my mouth. I was desperate, horrified and in pain.
When I walked into the office of Dr. Grablin, Gail and he introduced themselves to me in such a welcoming and positive manner. They were concerned, caring, respectful and confident. At the initial consultation, Dr. Grablin intently listened to the problems I had and solution that I was seeking and put it his highest priority to get rid of all mercury fillings in my mouth. We started the work a few days later.
When we began working on the procedures, Dr. Grablin was extremely careful in not exposing me to any mercury during or after each procedure. He used the rubber dam, high-speed vacuum and lots of water to prevent it. And I experienced no acute mercury poisoning symptoms after each procedure.
Every time I sat in his dental chair, he offered these thoughtful items that made his patients most comfortable they could ever be in a dental chair. I could not have felt nearly as comfortable or relaxed without them; an airplane pillow, tinted goggles, a knee support cushion, blanket and lip gloss. His very thoughtful and caring personality also extended to the communication with his patients. He asked me how I was doing several times during the procedure and made funny jokes to make me laugh and relax. Trust me. It works…
There were a few times I actually fell asleep while he was drilling into my tooth. I had developed that kind of trust and secure feelings about his work. I had never in my life trusted a health care practitioner before I met Dr. G. None of the doctors or dentists that had worked on me had true interest in the long-term health of my body as a whole. But this one, Dr. Grablin, will be even more eager and committed than you are for you to achieve the best dental health of a lifetime. He is the very, very best dentist I have ever known and the only one I can trust. For the first time in my life, I could just sit back and relax….”
