An awesome dentist is what every family needs. Our dentist is nothing but awesome, so allow me to go on and on about her ’til I encourage you to go and see her (specially if you or your kids are scared of dentists!)
Dr. Rosanna Jover (or Dra. Mayang to many) has been my dentist since I was in 3rd grade. I’m in my 30’s now *gulp* so do the math!
Before a family friend recommended Tita Mayang, I only remember two trips to two different dentists. One in Hong Kong and one in Manila. On both occasions I was put to sleep (oxygen mask and all) in the dental chair then they pulled out several milk teeth — all because I was way too scared! The dentist we went to here in Manila was VERY scary and she seemed not to care that she was freaking me out. So I will forever be thankful that we were introduced to Dra. Mayang. 🙂 I’m still scared of dental procedures that require a needle BUT I always look forward to seeing my dentist.
Throughout the 20 plus years of knowing her, I’ve never seen her in a bad mood. She’s always been super jolly, friendly, sincere and reassuring. She isn’t the type of dentist who wants to do a bunch of procedures so she can bill you big time. She only does what is absolutely necessary.
She acknowledges (til this very day) that I am absolutely terrified of every single dental procedure BUT she has always managed to get me in a relaxed enough state to LET her do what she needs to do. I can’t believe I’m saying this but truth is, I can’t wait ’til I’m done breastfeeding so I can get major teeth work. I think after giving birth via c-section, I am slightly braver!
Last night Kristo, our 7 year old, said ‘guess what tomorrow is, papa? It’s the day I go to our dentist’ 🙂 I kid you not, Kristo was so excited this morning, he was looking forward to the anesthesia! Half an hour after we walked into Dra. Mayang’s clinic, we were done and Kristo was smiling from ear to ear. I don’t think he was even able to finish the show he was watching (while his tooth was being pulled out!)
As a mom, I’m glad Kristo enjoys going to the dentist – Dra. Mayang treats him so well, the same way she’s treated me all these years! Twenty plus years later she still has that magic touch!
