For as long as there have been dentists, patients have dreaded dental appointments. For many, visiting the dentist involves a long wait in a poorly decorated dental office with uncomfortable chairs and five year-old magazines. Well, not anymore! There is a new trend emerging that is making many patients actually look forward to visiting the dentist.
Visiting the dentist is a fact of life. Most of us will visit our dental office a minimum of two times per year, and that is if our teeth are healthy. So why shouldn’t visiting the dentist be a pleasant experience we look forward to instead of one that we dread?
Many forward-thinking dentists are making patients look forward to dental appointments by making their visits as pleasant as possible. Some dental offices now feature amenities such as WIFI access, flat screen televisions and noise cancelling headphones to make the wait much more tolerable and even enjoyable for patients. Special features such as valet parking and digital X-rays can make it easier for you to get into your dentist’s office and faster to get out. Some dentists are even taking it further by offering luxury features such as a beverage bar and hot scented towels and blankets. Why wouldn’t you want to visit an office like this!
Many dental offices also offer sedation dentistry and utilize Oral Conscious Sedation to keep patients relaxed, comfortable and free of pain during dental procedures. Oral Conscious Sedation involves the use of oral sedatives that can be administered in the safe and controlled environment of a dental office.
There is no reason for you to continue to dread visiting the dentist. If your current dentist is not offering the amenities and services you want, find a qualified dentist in your local area who does. Enjoy!
