What can anyone tell me about Dr. Fabio? Skill, how gentle, understanding? That kind of thing. Use of anesthetics.
Also Dr. Richard Fraebel.

And, above and beyond that, anyone have a recommendation for a dentist? Looking for someone who understands that some people have a phobia about dentists. No sudden moves, if you get me.

I prefer Dr Van Heckman. Hes in the Beaston Hill Medical Center. Hes the only dentist that will get you in for an emergency visit right away. Not an emergency dental cleaning but if you're in pain they get emergencies in between 7am and 8am. The staff is like any other medical staff here, some of them are wonderful some of them need a little sunshine in their life. The dentist himself is very kind and patient.

I haven't heard much of anything about Dr. Fabio (even though I live right across the street), but I tried to get into see Dr. Fraebel a couple of years ago, and he wasn't taking new patients. I tried Dr. VanHeckman. I waited way too long in his office and finally said forget it when they came out and told me it would be another half hour "or so", after already waiting over an hour. I tried Dr. Kenses, and he wasn't taking new patients for about 6 months out, so.....I went to the dentist in Oregon during a visit and finally Dr. Kenses took on a partner, Dr. Buska, who was taking new patients. I've been to him a few times now, and I really like him. He explains what he is doing and seems very gentle with shots, and drills, etc. I' ve never been one to be particularly scared of dentists, though. His number is 773-2024. It's already getting tough to get an appointment with him.
