Due to excess wear and tear on my 6 upper front teeth, it became necessary to crown said teeth. Vi, Dr. Hoop’s asst., had been monitoring this situation and it became apparent that we could no longer wait. I was very apprehensive sue to too many factors i.e. pain, cost, time element and cosmetics.
I was fortunate, however, that I found Dr. Hoop and his staff. Since time was of the essence, Dr. Hoop immediately set me up with the initial dental physical. When that was completed, we were ready to move, rather quickly, into the first step of the procedure. We had a lengthy discussion of exactly what I was looking to accomplish. Dr. Hoop encouraged me to ask any questions, no matter how inane and answered them fully. He always gave me the best and worst case scenario so that my expectations were feasible.
I picked out the shape, color and size of my crowns with the help of Dr. Hoop, making sure my age, facial structure, etc. were the best fit for me. Because I had time issues, Dr. Hoop and his staff jumbled around appointments and were able to arrange the initial appt. within days. Kim, the receptionist, worked tirelessly with my insurance company to get the optimal coverage.
I was very nervous about the procedure itself, but with Dr. Hoop’s gentle chair side manner, and his assistant, Joanie’s cheerful nurturing nature, made a long procedure almost pleasant. The pain I was anticipating never happened. I left that afternoon with all of my temporary crowns, which were beautiful. I never expected the temporaries to look so natural.
Within weeks, my permanent crowns were cemented and I now have the smile I had in my youth, only better!
This entire experience exceeded my expectation in every way. I’m still in awe over how easy and painless the whole procedure was.
I cannot thank Dr. Hoop and his lovely staff enough for making my smile beautiful again.
