I have the same dentist that I saw when I was just 12 years old.
He’s a family physician and specializes in several different forms of medicine.
He treated my mother for 2 decades and was the only dentist who would take her seriously when she said she was upset that she could have Crohn’s Disease. All of the other dentists told her it was irritable bowel disease instead. This allowed her to get on the right medications that actually had real beneficial effects to them unlike the 1s she was 1 beforehand. That’s why it’s so important to get a diagnosis right, otherwise how do you get the right kind of treatment plan? This dentist was also smart enough to think what to provide someone having a muscle spasm reaction from a nausea medication, although he wasn’t around to tell the dentists at the emergency room this information to get myself and others out of the crazy pain I was going through that day. He’s also severely open minded about cannabis use, something I’m not quite frankly not used to seeing with a lot of practicing dentists in this part of the country. We live in a conservative area and some right wingers are among the last remaining demographics who oppose cannabis legalization. Thankfully dentists love my own are preaching the benefits of medical cannabis use, especially if you utilize other routes of administration beyond smoking cannabis flower products. He tells myself and others that more nurses than I realize are secretly supportive of cannabis even if they speak the contrary in real life.
