Fun fact: my mom was a dental hygienist so hard candy, sugar-filled gum, and Kool-Aid didn’t exist in our house growing up. At the time, it sucked, but looking back I am so thankful that she enforced the importance of tooth care.
For me, my smile is one of my defining features. I spent about 5 years in braces and a year in headgear at night so I am proud to show them off.
That being said, I didn’t have my first cavity until age 16. Each time I’ve been to the dentist since it seems I’ve had another one. That might be exaggerating slightly, but not by much. Needless to say, the dentist quickly became my least favorite doctor, until my experience at North Meridian Dental Excellence.
Dr. Ben Ahlbrecht and his team at North Meridian Dental Excellence are rockstars. I had an exam and cleaning like I’ve never had before. They constantly told me what they were doing next, why they were doing it, and they explained my x-rays thoroughly. They are truly committed to quality dental care.
I had a full workup for my first time at North Meridian Dental Excellence. My x-rays showed a couple of areas they are watching for cavities, but this time… NO CAVITIES for this girl. Kathleen did an excellent job cleaning my teeth and my gums weren’t sore for three days like the last time I went to the dentist.
Check out this interview I did with Dr. Ahlbrecht. It provides great insight on his North Meridian Dental Excellence practice and goals for his role in dentistry in Indy.
