GET TO KNOW - DR. JACQUELYN GOMEZ-BARTEK
What is the best compliment you have received as a dentist?
The best compliment is when a patient tells me, "I trust you." When I hear this I know that these people have a good understanding of who I am. I prefer to treat patients who place their trust in me because we generally share the same goals. I am a dentist who values honesty, patience, hard work, loyalty, compassion, and kindness.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not practicing dentistry?
I enjoy being with my family and close friends, spending time outdoors, especially basking in the sun or being physically active. I enjoy walking, running, biking, skiing, tennis, watching (and sometimes sleeping during) Notre Dame college football games with my husband, and vacationing.
What is the biggest challenge people face when seeking dental treatment?
I think it's ultimately fear. Whether we are age 3, 33, 63, or 93, we all have fears of the unknown. I love Eleanor Roosevelt's quote, "You must do the thing you fear most.” Whether it be the fear of pain associated with past dental experiences, fear of the cost associated with dental treatment, or simply a fear of making an appointment to see a dentist or hygienist that you have never seen before. Rest assured we know people are afraid of the dental office and everyone in my office is here to help you along the way and make your experience as enjoyable as possible.
