What the Pro's are saying
If you thought getting a tooth crowned was just about as boring and painful as watching the Vikings lose, you’ve got something to learn. I broke a tooth while driving and eating beef jerky. (I don’t think this is against the law yet.) My regular dentist was three hours away and I needed this taken care of this now! I did a google search on “Nisswa Dentist“ and Nisswa Smiles, Dr. Luke Waln, DDS showed up. I made an appointment.
This place is located right in the middle of downtown Nisswa, in case you like to shop or get a cup of coffee. From the minute I walked in, I knew this is not your typical dental office. The place looks like a log cabin on Gull Lake, complete with fire place and leather sofa. The kids’ corner was even equipped with an Apple Wii. I wanted to try it out but felt a little too big and old to sit in those small chairs.
Once in the procedure chair I felt like I was in a rocket ship, completely equipped with a HD TV - and they gave me the remote. My wife doesn’t do that! I flipped though the weather channel, CNN and Fox News. I felt productive even if I wasn’t. Dr. Waln, proceeded to take pictures of my broken tooth and showed me the problem and his recommendation on the HD TV. Not a pretty picture but very effective.
The neatest part was when Dr Waln designed my crown on his computer right in front of me. He made a perfect tooth, much better than the way we used to get crowns. You know, take an impression and come back a week or two later to get it installed.
I walked in with a broken tooth and when I walked out, I was all fixed up. Job complete, one happy camper! This took weeks in the past, Dr Waln does it in a couple hours. Not bad for a first time experience. They even called the next day to see how I was doing.
If you need dental work in the Brainerd Lakes Area you need to check this out. I give it Five Stars. Free coffee and cookies to boot!
Getting your tooth crowned is not the way your parents did it
