Many people have anxiety about going to the dentist. According to dentalfearcentral.org, 75 percent of Americans fear a visit to the dentist.
That isn’t the case for patients of Dr. Harold Welch in Seffner, he has been putting smiles on their faces for 26 years. He was the first dentist office to open in the Seffner area. He has a staff of 12 workers and several of them have been with working for him for more than 20 years.
“Like a physician, I can relieve people’s pain and improve their health,” Welch said.
His office is one of a kind for the fact that it has an in-house denture, crown and bridge lab. Welch said this is extremely important because it’s hard to explain the shades and contours of a tooth to a lab across town or across the country.
It is much easier to have a lab tech in his office to see the patient’s teeth to get the color and shape correct.
“As a dentist, I have a lot of responsibility that I take seriously,” Welch said, “If someone calls with a tooth ache after hours or on the weekend, sometimes I see them right away.”
His office is open later some nights during the week and he also offers certain weekend hours, but only for emergencies.
“I am not an emergency dentist, I am a family dentist that doesn’t want to see anyone suffer in pain,” Welch said, “So, I will see patients after-hours and on the weekends to help them.”
Welch is also very active in his community. He has coached for the North Brandon Little League and at the Valrico Soccer Club. Welch’s office is located at 807 W. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., in Seffner
