Hey, Dr. Mounts here. And it’s that time of year again, when we’ve opened all of our Christmas presents and we’re taking down the Christmas decorations, and we’re trying to figure out what our New Year’s Resolutions are gonna be. I know almost everybody makes them. Did you know I found out today that about 80% of the New Year’s Resolutions that get made fail by the first of February? So that’s a pretty sad statistic. But anyway, they don’t always make it too far into the year. I think there’s a few reasons for that, and I think one is that people just generally don’t like change and so trying to change things is hard. Also, too, when you’ve got a pretty big change that you’re needing to make, it seems like people get really overwhelmed with that, and so they just have a hard time getting started.
I think that’s also the case with people who haven’t been to the dentist in a long time. I think there are things that keep them from coming in, just from picking up the phone and making that first call. I think trying to make that change is difficult. I think the feeling of being overwhelmed because they know there are a lot of problems in there that need to be dealt with. Also, too, there’s the worry that they’re gonna come in and the dentist is gonna yell at them because they haven’t been in for a long time and now there’s just a big mess to fix.
Well I’ll have you know that I’ve been doing this for 15 years, and I have yet to run across a patient that I had to yell at. So that’s not gonna happen if you come here. And really, I’ll tell you that’s what we’re good at here, is trying to help people figure out how to take care of their mouth and how to take care of big problems. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had people come in overwhelmed and say, “There’s not anything you’re gonna be able to do with this, it’s just time to go to dentures.” And we seem to always be able to find a way to help them get their teeth fixed, find a way to help them be able to afford it, and give them a good idea of what things are gonna be like when they’re done. So we try to look for goals to reach. We try to find good ways to obtain those goals, and try to help patients get to what it is they want their mouth to be like when it’s all said and done.
So if it’s been a while since you’ve been to the dentist, and you’ve been putting it off, and you’re thinking, “What kind of New Year’s Resolution am I gonna do this year?” Don’t worry about losing weight, let’s just fix your teeth, all right? Let’s come in, let’s try to get things healthy there, so that you can have something that you can smile about, something that you’re proud about, and give us a chance to help you walk through that, and I think you’ll be presently surprised that we can come up with some good ways to get things fixed for you. So give us a call, just pick up the phone. It’s 501-753-0166.
