Patient Story: Beth Wood

Let's face it - for some, trips to the dental clinic can be anxiety-inducing. Beth Wood, a retired personal assistant and sales manager, would often get nervous about her dental appointments, until she met Dr. White.

Beth Wood has been a long-time patient of Midlothian Dental Center. As an active and adventurous person, Beth enjoys golfing, skiing, and scuba diving. In fact, she and her husband take a scuba diving trip to the Cayman Islands every year!

Beth recently faced a dental issue. Ten years ago, Beth had undergone a round of Invisalign to straighten her teeth. But more recently, Beth noticed that her teeth had begun to shift back to their original position. That's when she decided to turn to Midlothian Dental Center for help.

Many people turn to orthodontic methods to achieve a more attractive smile, but for Beth, it was all about the functionality - she had found it difficult to perform regular maintenance, such as flossing, due to the shifting of her teeth. 

“It wasn’t about the aesthetics for me,” Beth said. “My teeth were bothering me. I could tell there was something odd about them.” Together, Beth and Dr. White created a plan to address Beth’s misaligned teeth, and she was soon started on a new round of Invisalign

Beth is, admittedly, a nervous dentist-goer. She has always disliked people poking around in her mouth. However, Dr. White was able to soothe her nerves. 

“She has an incredible bedside manner,” Beth stated. “She makes sure her patients are comfortable by checking in with them frequently, and is very gentle when she works. She is the best dentist I could have ever asked for.”

Beth's positive experience with Midlothian Dental Center has led her to refer all her neighbors to the practice. In fact, herself, her husband, and her mother are all loyal patients of Midlothian! 

Now, with her new Invisalign treatment, Beth has never been more comfortable with her smile - and these days, she has lots to smile about! She enjoys spending time with her family and exploring the great outdoors - and she has particularly enjoyed this mild winter, allowing her to play golf all year long!
