I used to drink 12 cans of soda while working night shift. I didn't know it would damage my teeth. Last week I broke my tooth on a chicken drumstick and it hurt all night til Dr. Rethmeyer and Amanda the assistant fixed it. They told me it was the soda that ate my teeth. I never knew drinking soda was like drinking battery acid. She is fixing them now and I have quit soda so I won't have any more tooth problems.

I am such a chicken that I put this off until the pain was unbearable. I didn't know which tooth was hurting me and Dr. R was able to find the right tooth. My tooth was so bad that it needed to be removed. She took it out with out any pain and it was so quick that I didn't realize it was already out. She gave me instruction for the meds so I never hurt.

A few years back I was a patient at Dr. R's office and I decided to switch to another dentist because of insurance reasons. After one cheap crown at the other office I was crawling back to doctor R's office asking for help. The crown just didn't fit right, it hurt to bite, it didn't look pretty, it just wasn't the same as my other crowns that Dr. R did. The crowns that Dr. R did just fit so well and looked so natural. I will never change dentist again.
I was amazed by what dr karen can do. (she is a dentist with an engineering background). since i grind my teeth, my old dentist made me a bite guard...but it made my jaws hurt and my joints started popping. i knew i was getting worse instead of better. when i went to dr karen, she was able to work with my jaw's natural bite and transform the bite guard into a perfect bite-pain is gone, popping is almost gone. now i can rest without hurting myself!
