Seeking expert testimony is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
I believe that I can help.
It is evident that you missed several good opportunities to possibly initiate a relationship with this woman who is so appealing to you.
She wanted you to ask her and even warned you about moving to a new office but you never took the initiative because you are probably a bit shy and not very forward.
Now you are in a situation where you would like to re-establish contact with her but you are still being too timid.
You need to do two things, and probably work on both at once.
The first is to locate this woman and make contact with her and ask her out for coffee or dinner or whatever she would enjoy and feel comfortable with.
The second is to work on your shyness and gain more self confidence.
How can you find her? By going to her town and hoping to get lucky is probably not the best approach. It is too random. Here are the things I would do:
-find her on the internet if you don't have her number
-call the office where you worked (your dentist) and ask for her or how you can reach her
-if that doesn't work call every dentist in the area and ask for her by name until you find her.
I also urge you to order the following workbooks and work on building your self confidence:
Don't let these two opporunities pass you by: the opportunity to win this woman over to you, and the opportunity for personal growth in self-esteem.
I wish you great success and shall keep you in my prayers.
