When I was a kid, I hated going to the dentist. Despised it, and after having a root canal done on my two front teeth (after an accident which caused some dental damage), the experience was enough to give me fears and shivers just thinking about going to one.
The dentist our family went to was not exactly a very empathetic person, either. His “dental chair side” manner was not one that would encourage children that were petrified to be any less so. At least I don’t remember him being that way.
So it is with a lot of confidence after taking my son to a dentist, that I can highly recommend Dr. Gewarges – and if you have children and live close enough to the Shelburne, ON area to use his services, you might want to consider his clinic.
David was originally very nervous about going to the dentist, but Dr. Gewarges and his staff had David at ease almost immediately. For children (and adults), being at ease is probably the most important thing to ensuring an experience that will ensure good dental practices later in life, including regular checkups. Dr. G, as his patients often call him, had funny jokes, a smile, and a demeanor that just couldn’t but make David smile and realize that he could relax and my son went away with no more fears of going to the dentist.
It was with a bit of sadness to learn that Dr. Gewarges had decided to sell his clinic in Orangeville and retire, a few years back. But recently, we learned that he just could not keep away from practicing the profession he loved and has since opened a new clinic in Shelburne. And seriously, if you are looking for a family dentist, and live in the area, I would suggest that giving Dr. G a try will probably be something you won’t regret.
