"Dr. Lee & Staff Knew How To Care For My Son's Unique Dental Needs "
With his teeth, the way they were before we started this process, he was getting to a point to where even though we would order pizza, he wouldn’t eat a bunch. So we kind of know, you are going to have new teeth, and a doctor we’ve had for like 25 years, let us know that it was going to have to be the actual implants because he will not be able to take regular dentures. And I’m the type that when I meet somebody, I could pretty much tell whether I want to deal with them or not. And from the moment we walked in the door, we’re comfortable. The girls at the desk made us feel comfortable. When we met Chris, he made us feel comfortable. When we met Dr. Lee, he made us feel comfortable and he made us feel that, you know, they cared about taking care of what Anthony needed. A lot of people, when they start dealing with folks with disabilities, not so much.
There are individual boxes. There is a thing here that is going to mill the teeth out of this, and then you have a teeth like that. Okay? And there’s a mill and it’s going to go and mill the teeth so you got the teeth. That’s cool, right?
All Right, I’ll see you later okay?
High five. Snap it. There ya go.
We never have felt the pressure. Okay, this is what we have to have. Dr. Lee uses [inaudible] This is what Anthony needs and explained that. I was like, okay and this is where he listened to us about Anthony. And a lot of people with Down’s Syndrome, small teeth is kind of normal and he listened to us about what we knew Anthony had in the past and probably needed and this is you know, we came up with finally, what you got now which Anthony really likes because he is speaking well and we can understand what he is saying, with then big teeth we didn’t understand. But since he’s got the implants, oh yeah, he’s back to two, three, four pieces. [inaudible] It’s not the biting but the chewing. He chews now.
Hey Anthony, you want to come and take a look? Right over here. Look at how the teeth are. This is what we’ve been doing. This is how your teeth used to look like. Alright? It start…
Yeah, exactly. So it comes out blank and then we start to paint it with our own brush and then we make it look pretty. And then we start to paint them to get it nice and pretty, you know?
One of the things that do we do is we do at Special Olympics Washington. So we have taken the magazine, passed it to the doctor, passed it on to friends through special olympics cause it’s kind of a community even though we will face each other at different sporting events, the bottom line is, we work together. Both boys, their primary doctor is kind of specialized in folks with Down. Thus, she has recommended some of her patients.
So you’ve seen the smile on this guy. That’s his smile. You hear the way he talks, that’s the way he talks. Everybody’s an individual. Dr. Lee treated him as an individual and worked with him in that way.
