I have been a patient at Blackburn since 1995. I have always been very nervous in a dentist’s chair. You know, sweaty palms and eyes squeezed shut hoping they find nothing wrong. Well Dr. Malette changed all that for me. She and her assistant Angie are very caring and a calming influence. During a freezing, she will tell you to go to that favourite place. If you have any pain, she stops right away and gives you time to breathe and explain what you are feeling. Even when she uses the drill, which I really hate, she tells how many more seconds till she is done. I am so grateful to have her as my dentist.
