Meet Doctor Amiee Rawlings
I do what I do because I love to teach people. I also grew up knowing I wanted to do something in the medical field, and dentistry just fit the bill. I first started out as a dental hygienist. I was a hygienist for 20 years which worked really great with my growing family and taking care of my kids. You know, the most rewarding aspect of dentistry is when I’m able to help someone realize a change in their own life and that they can make a difference. And when I see them come back having made those choices and improving their health for better, and man they feel good and they are so proud of themselves for being able to make that choice. It’s just really rewarding being able to get someone out of pain, and getting people out of that cycle where they just fully expected from where they’re growing up and from their own family that to be able to turn them around and letting them know that, no, you can actually keep your teeth for a lifetime. And then they actually make those choices to change is really great to see. I like to educate what I’m going to be doing and why I’m going to be doing it for them, and that they also have the autonomy to choose their path and which of the choices that I give available to them so that they can take a more active role in preventing things. Definitely coming from a hygiene background, a dental hygienist background first, that set me strongly on the path of preventative dentistry so that we can keep you out of pain. So that we can take care of something when it’s little versus when it’s getting too big, and then where our choices are limited at that point. If you live in the Montrose area or the areas surrounding Montrose, we would love to be able to see you at our office. We offer care for those who have neglected their care. We offer great care for those who are scared to come to the dentist for whatever reason. We definitely would like to work with you. We work for you and help you to get over the anxieties. But most of all, we just care about you as a patient, and what your circumstances are, and how we can help you deal with what you have.
