I’m going to go out on a limb and say no one gives a better injection than me. I know what you’re thinking, “you’re full of it Brett, every dentist says that”. Yes, they do, and yes, I mostly am, but as much as I like joking about pretty much everything, giving perfect injections is something I take very seriously. I’ve even made a video for the Australian Dental Association on my painless injection technique (based on the patient feedback I get, I don’t think many dentists watched it).
So how good is it? Well, 17 out of 20 patients tell me it’s the best injection they’ve ever had. 2 out of 20 patients ask me why their face is going numb and argue with me that they don’t believe I’ve given them an injection (seriously, that happens). 1 in 20 people I have to give a particular type of injection that I can’t give painlessly (in the roof of the mouth-sorry for the details), but even those people say it’s not that bad.
All my dentist and doctor patients ask me how I do it, and I’m happy to teach them or you the trick (it involves auditory, sensory and motor distraction). Even when I tell people how it works, it still works. Check out my unsolicited reviews. A few people mention it. Or better still, come in and put me to the test 🙂
