When I was a little girl, I was taken to a dentist who I am certain purchased his instruments from a medieval yard sale. He was just the first in a series of nightmare dentists, one of them being eerily similar to Dr. Orin Scrivello, without the benefit of humor or a musical score. I was terrified to the point of having to request gas for simple cleanings. I eventually wound up going to a perfectly nice but completely ineffectual dentist. He didn't hurt me, but on the other hand he didn't do much of anything at all. It came to pass that I had a chipped tooth that was aching, and I knew it was time for a cleaning. I also figured that it was time to put on my big-girl pants and find a real dentist. I read in NJ Monthly about Dr. Adams being one of the Top Dentists in New Jersey and her office is conveniently located in my town, so I made an appointment. I am so very glad I did. First, the staff at Adams Dental is amazing, particularly AndrÃ©a. They emailed me all the forms so I could fill them in at my leisure before my first visit. They confirmed my appointment. They greeted me warmly when I entered the door at the crack of dawn. And then I met Dr. Adams, one of the nicest, most energetic people I've ever met, who proceeded to give me the most thorough dental exam I've ever had in my life, reassuring me and explaining everything she was doing as she was doing it. I needed a scaling and a tiny cavity filled. Terror. They made two appointments for me and told me to bring my iPod, which was brilliant. Music sounds much better than the sonic cleaning thing. By the end of the first appointment I was fairly certain I didn't need the gas that I had asked for (though I'm still not quite brave enough to go without). She was as gentle as could be, and distracted me with a combination of facts and humor. Her amazing staff followed-up with me after the appointments to make sure I was doing OK. I have to go back for a crown. Though I'm not overjoyed, I know I am finally in good hands, that there's not going to be any unneccessary pain, and that they're on top of things. The work so far has been outstanding, and I'm looking forward to a lifetime of healthy teeth. It is impossible to be this good at something without loving what you do - and clearly Dr. Adams takes pride in her profession. I adore this practice so much that I have taken up flossing (somewhat) regularly. If you need a dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Adams and her fabulous team.-Tae E., IT
