I am a nurse and I chose this profession because of my passion to provide optimum patient care. So needless to say, when the table is turned and I became the patient, I am the worst critic because I expect nothing but excellent care from my clinician. Dr. Wei has shown me that and much more.
First, I have suffered from periodontal disease for the last 15 years and have made numerous visits to the dentists for a rather uncomfortable procedure called deep scaling and root planing (also known as deep cleaning). This process takes about 45 minutes and requires getting numbed up, something I absolutely dislike. I pride myself in having a high pain threshold but the injectable anesthetic is just unbearable at times, even with the topical anesthetic. Dr. Wei is by far the only dentist who has made this process comfortable for me. I don’t know how but he gives the most gentle injections. It is over before I even know it!
Second, not only am I a nurse, but I am an oncology nurse who works with head and neck cancer patients so I see a lot of patients with mouth cancer. According to CDC, more than 30,000 new cases of mouth and pharynx cancer are diagnosed each year in the US. The ADA is trying to boost public awareness of oral cancer and screening is now a routine part of a dental examination. Dr. Wei is the only dentist who ever performed a comprehensive oral examination on my first visit and every visit after. Unfortunately, I can’t say that about my previous dentists.
And last, being in the healthcare field, I am always surrounded by healthcare professionals so I know a great provider when I see one. And Dr. Wei is indeed the best! He is passionate about dentistry and genuinely cares about his patients. Dr. Wei is an honest and true professional – at no time was I ever pushed into having any unnecessary procedures. He explains to me all my options in a clear, concise manner and then allows me to make my own decisions. It is simply refreshing to find a dental clinic with such high standards of work but also offers a very personal and caring environment. I have complete confidence in everything Dr. Wei does and have always been satisfied with my experience.
