As a health professional, I am very observant about the small details that make a patient's dental or medical experience safe, comfortable and efficient. I am also aware that medical and dental visits can be "triggering" for people who suffer from PTSD, or for those may have not been diagnosed with this condition, but may come with a significant history of trauma or abuse or anxiety. Dr. Travelle and his team provide service that is in synch with Trauma Informed Care. They are all very kind, compassionate , friendly, warm and welcoming. They offer choices that help patients feel a modicum of control. They explain every procedure with clarity and as much detail as you want. They assure that any pain will be attended to and managed.
Dr.Travelle is the only dentist I have seen who actually collaborates with the patient, shares and discusses the treatment plan and breaks down the cost of care. He truly practices patient centered care. I am also impressed by the cheerfulness of the staff, from Mignon at the front desk to each of the dental assistants/hygienists. Dr. Travelle treats everyone on the team in a kind and respectful manner, and they treat each other the same way.
I have had several crowns place or replaced, and the quality of the work has been excellent. My daughter had to undergo what is typically painful scaling of plaque and calculus. She endured the treatment nearly pain-free, with no lingering pain post treatment.
I enthusiastically recommend this remarkable team of professionals to anyone seeking top-notch, compassionate dental care.
"My experience is great even through the transition from one dentist to Dr. Travelle. He has kept most of the same staff which makes the transition so much better."
"The Staff was very pleasant and Dr. Travelle was great when it came to answering of my questions. I like the fact that you get a break down of the cost of the dental work. I have just found the Dentist I would like to stay with. "
I have seen lots of commercials for toothpaste and I have been given Crest by past dentists.
Any toothpaste you like the flavor of. I hope this helps.
