Grand River Dental, Lacrosse

When I was born, I didn’t have any lateral incisors on the left or the right. It is for this reason that my canines were closer to the center than they are for most people. This abnormality was something which I could really do anything about since I was born with it. But it did make me look a lot like a vampire. This is the reason why I have hated my smile all through my life. Everyone told me to visit a dentist La Crosse Wi and get this problem fixed but I was too scared. I keep telling myself that there is nothing to fear and that everything will be alright. Unfortunately, I was still too worried even thinking of another person putting sharp instruments into my mouth. What made matters even worse was the fact that people kept telling me about how they felt dentists were dangerous and how I would need to suffer a lot if I were to fix this problem.

I took his advice and decided to call them up for an appointment. It was from this moment on that I knew I had made the right choice. They were just so professional in every aspect. If all dentists are like this, it’s hard for me to believe why anyone wouldn’t want to visit them.

Don’t think of this as a professional GRD Lacrosse review. That’s not what it is. This is just my honest opinion of their service and facilities.

What impressed me the most was the fact that the staff were extremely courteous. They weren’t in a hurry to move from one patient to the next and were quite pleasant. This is not what I was expecting. When I met the dentist who was going to look at my teeth as well, he spoke to me very nicely and took no time in making me feel comfortable around him. He assured me he could fix my teeth and explained the entire process to me in detail as well. And if that wasn’t enough, he answered every single question I had as well. What more could you want?

My permanent veneers were fitted into my mouth just 7 days later. When I smiled for the first time after the operation, I was so overcome with joy that words weren’t escaping my mouth. I thanked the dentist for their work and was more confident than ever. I am now going to spend my entire life telling people what a great job the GRD Lacrosse team did on my teeth.

Just visit the place and you will agree with everything I have said from the moment you enter the doors. You will see how the dentists there are all perfectionist. What are you waiting for? Don’t let dental problems hold you back any more. Just pick up the phone and set up an appointment with them today.

However, there are different methods of burning to go for. In a case where a dental office was found burning used dentist equipment in an outdoor wood stove, there were a couple of risks that came along with the method. But however, just like in any other method, there are pros and cons that come hand in hand.

  • Burning the used equipment eliminates cases of them being recycled as they cannot be retrieved after disposal. This prevents transmission of diseases from one patient to another
  • To an extent, using an outdoor wood stove cuts down the cost of disposing used dentist equipment. This is due to the fact that the cost of wood is quite minimal as compared to other fuels or methods of disposing the used equipment.

Despite the above stated pros, the following cons would have been experienced:

  • Environment pollution. Due to smoke emission, this will affect the environment. The level of hazard can be determined by the product being burned in the unit. In the case of used dental equipment, they should be safely disposed as they can cause health effects.
  • The fact that the equipment was used, the emissions could affect, not only to the people around the area where the unit is located, but the operator of the unit too.
  • Since the unit does not contain a thermostat, it simply meant that the heat could not have been regulated or kept at constant levels.
  • After burning, ash has to be disposed and if poorly done, it can pollute the environment.
