The dentist LaMonne recommended was very good. I was in a lot of pain, and LaMonne was very patient and kind while he helped me. Anyway, I got an appointment for the same afternoon, and had my tooth extracted. The dentist was gentle and very nice, and the extraction was painless except for the needle sticks to give me the anesthetic (I suppose that small amount of pain can't be completely eliminated). The procedure was quick, and the things I needed to do afterwards were explained to me very well. As a result, I've had a minimum of pain after the procedure, as well. I'm back at work today, jwhich should demonstrate that the pain is well under control. Thanks, 1-800-DENTIST! I'm very happy with your help!
