The care Dr. Robinson and her staff provided during all my procedures was superb! I felt absolutely no pain at any time neither during nor after my procedures. The only memory I have of them is being in a very comfortable chair surrounded by pillows! I actually look forward to my appointments at her office."

"I am so pleased to write a testimonial for Dr. Robinson's office! I have just had (4/25/13) the most pleasant dental experience of my life! Since I was a child, I have suffered with difficulty getting numb. In the past, dentists were often angry with me for shaking and jerking from pain. Most of them didn't believe I was in pain and would continue to drill anyway. Needless to say, my dental life until now has been torturous. I am so grateful for Dr. Robinson and her extremely competent team! I will choose conscious sedation from now on. There was a moment during my dental work when I felt some pain. Dr. Robinson immediately knew and promptly stopped and administered more anesthetic. It was such a relief to know that she was taking care of me, that she wasn't going to let me suffer. During the whole experience, I felt calm and safe. She communicated what she was finding in my mouth and the choices she was making regarding my treatment. Her care was simply excellent. I am so happy! Also, I have to give a shout out to Kelleyanne and her stellar insurance navigation skills. She submitted a pre-determination request to my insurance, made sense to me of what it said, and made sure my coverage was optimized as we created a plan for my visit. Not only are these women very competent, but they also seem to really enjoy their work. I am so impressed! It is a blessing in my life that I found this office. I am telling everyone I know. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

“Prior to seeing Dr. Robinson, it had been 22 yrs since my last dental visit. Fear was the main reason I avoided dental care.

Dr. Robinson and her staff showed genuine concern for my health, fears and pain level. I never once felt pain during the procedures I had done. I received phone calls on weekends from Dr. Robinson herself to check on my well-being.

Dr. Robinson and her team were so excited about my new smile...they sent flowers to my home to make me feel beautiful inside and out. What class! They are awesome and I have recommended her to anyone who will listen. Never did I dream that I would smile inside after smiling in the mirror.”

"Just the thought of going to the dentist would put me in a cold sweat. I had a wisdom tooth extracted without being numb by, whom I consider, a Nazi dentist when I was 15 years old. For the next 23 years I avoided the dentist like the plague. Then I met Kelleyanne, Dr. Robinson's hygienist, and she assured me that Dr. Robinson was gentle and talented in her craft. I went under conscious sedation for my extensive treatment plan and it was a wonderful experience. I no longer need sedation for cleanings but I still use the laughing gas. Kelleyanne is now my wife and Theresa Binion is my hygienist. I highly recommend Dr. Robinson and her staff as they are extremely knowledgable, caring, and very good at what they do."

“Prior to seeing Dr. Robinson, it had been 5 yrs since my last dental visit. Fear was the main reason I avoided dental care.

I had an extremely intense fear of the dentist, especially the sound of the drills near my face. This caused me to avoid dental care which led to multiple major dental problems, and a great deal of pain. Dr. Robinson and her team are very sympathetic and caring to their patients and their fears. Their attitude of professionalism and caring combined with the sedation techniques they use, allowed me to handle my dental needs without fear or pain, aside from a little soreness afterwards. I also remember very little of what previously would have been a nightmare… I now have no fear of the dentist because I know I’m in good hands and there will be no pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Robinson and her team to anyone, especially high fear patients.”

“Prior to seeing Dr. Robinson, it had been 7 yrs since my last dental visit. Fear was the main reason I avoided dental care and I had trouble eating. They (Dr. R and team) made me feel comfortable and didn’t criticize me because I had bad teeth and gum disease. The staff was excellent in attending to my every need. I was very nervous my first visit, just walking in (the office) I felt nausea. I will be coming back all the time for my cleanings and other dental work. Dr. Robinson is a God-send to someone like me who was paranoid of a dentist. Oral sedation is the only way to go. I have no memory of the experience at all. God Bless Dr. Robinson and her staff!”

"I am writing to share my excitement about my new smile. Several years ago I came to Dr. Robinson for help with my teeth. I had had braces when I was a young child but my teeth had since shifted. I wanted the bright smile that lights up a room and that is precisely what I got. Dr. Robinson explained to me my options as far as straightening, etc, but I decided I wanted to have veneers put on. This would, in my mind, be the quickest, easiest and best way to get the straight, white teeth I had always wanted. Dr. Robinson was terrific through the process and I couldn't be happier with the results. The first things people tell me now is how much more I smile and how nice my smile is. I can't even describe how this has changed my life, and I would wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone."

"My main problem with dentistry is claustrophobia. I have always been slightly claustrophobic, but as I have gotten older it has greatly intensified. I have suffered through bi-yearly cleanings but when I began experiencing sensitivity in a tooth that was more filling than tooth, I was advised a root canal was the only alternative if I wanted to keep the tooth. After talking with friends about the root canal procedure, I knew I would not be able to go through it without medication of some sort. A friend at work found Dr. Robinson’s website and I called and was immediately assured that they could help me. During my initial consultation, I jokingly asked if we could just "fix" all of my teeth at once. Dr. Robinson assured me that this was indeed possible. We proceeded from there and scheduled an appointment that would include at least one root canal, 5 crowns and 7 replacement fillings.

Since my appointment was several weeks away, I had plenty of time to get cold feet. I was worried that sedation would not work on me or that it would wear off before the work was completed. I called the office on more than one occasion and was always reassured that everything would be completely under control. After each telephone conversation, I remembered why I had agreed to have this work done. Every staff member was so in tune with my anxiety that I never felt like I was a wimp and they were extremely confident that dental work would never again be a problem for me.

I must say that they were right! The sedation worked like a charm. I remember very little and can honestly say that when I returned for the permanent crowns, I actually looked forward to going. I highly recommend sedation dentistry!!"

"I put off having my wisdom teeth removed for 10 years. After a routine dental cleaning, I had the chance to meet Dr Robinson & discuss my concerns about the extractions. She was informative & engendered trust with her competence & assurance that current pain management would allow me to return to life & work quickly. Following the procedure, I was very pleased with minimal level of discomfort and my ability to resume normal life. Dr. Robinson also provided excellent follow up with post-operative communication & re-examination."

"Praise to Dr. Robinson and her professional staff. Avoiding the dentist for 25 yrs. due to fear had brought such depression not being able to smile without people looking and saying to themselves uhhh! Dr. Robinson’s sedation was my only hope. Being nervous before her beautiful result of my smile occurred, I was expecting discomfort but as Dr. Robinson completed her work I was shocked to find out how easy the whole reconstruction for my smile was. It must have been harder for Dr. Robinson and her wonderful staff than it was for me. I can’t stop looking in the mirror and saying "I can’t believe what I’m seeing, my smile is beautiful. Thanks so so much!"

"Dr. Robinson and her team make every effort to provide the highest level of dental care with little to no discomfort to the patient. I have been very pleased with the level of service received and cannot recommend sedation dentistry highly enough. Had I not discovered this form of dentistry, I honestly do not know what I would have done about my dental health. Sedation dentistry is the only way to go if you, like me, fear the usual pain associated with visits to the dentist."

"The medication that is given to you before the surgery begins is a big help. I hardly remember what was done to me during the surgery it went that well."

"It was the best dental experience I have ever had. It was virtually pain free, and everyone is very caring and considerate even to the point of straightening out my insurance. Thank You!"

"I found Dr. Robinson when I had a crown that needed to be replaced due to poor fit and pain. I had heard about sedation dentistry and wanted to try it since I have high dental anxiety and a low pain threshold. The medications provided for my sedation allowed me to doze through most of my procedures (I ended up requiring two root canals as well as the replacement crown.) Knowing that the sedation option is available makes dental work a much less scary and ominous thought. I would not get any major dental work done without it now! Thank you again…"

"I received exceptional care from Dr. Robinson and her team. All of the procedures were explained to me in detail, as were the charges. I was told exactly what to expect from the sedation process, particularly its after-effects (which were minor) and the duration.

My experience with sedation was a positive one. I was somewhat aware of what was happening, but not of the passage of time. After the procedure, I slept most of the day, was able to eat a meal without discomfort that evening, then slept the night through. I awoke the next day with only a little soreness.

After anticipating a painful procedure and its associated stress, I was pleasantly surprised to have had such a positive experience. If in the future it is necessary to have similar dental work performed, I will definitely opt for the sedation."
