Before I became a cosmetic and restorative dentist, I walked in your shoes. No matter how much I knew I needed to get my teeth cleaned and examined as a teenager and young adult, I still had a slight unsettling feeling about the experience. This is pretty common for most people when they think about dental care. It can be a frightening and uneasy visit; especially if you find out that you need additional dental work.

That’s why I want to do everything in my power to make patient visits the most enjoyable and relaxing as they can possibly be; trying my best to eliminate the fears and anxiety. Those who know me and my everyday personality know that I am soft-spoken individual and not the least bit intimidating. And, while I am very gentle, sometimes the extra – what we call amenities – benefits really help my patients calm down and relax.

We gave it a lot of thought and invested in the full patient experience. Here are some of our most popular amenities:

  • Hand warmers. Mimicking a spa-like approach, we want you to remove physical stress and tension. Heat is a great way to sooth the body.
  • Moisturizing lotions. The perfect compliment to the hand warmers!
  • Neck pillows and blackets. Because why wouldn’t you want to close your eyes and relax on a soft pillow and snuggle up under a warm blanket?
  • Personal movies. As other dental offices now offer, we like to make ours even more personal by offering our patients earphones a large video collection to choose from.

If I find that my patient is still unable to rest, I do offer oral sedation – often called sleep dentistry. This is often used for complex restorative or cosmetic procedures.

I hope these delicacies help improve your office visit. If not, Pam and I are sure to make you laugh with our fun, giggling personalities. 🙂

Hope to see you soon!
