The Patient Experience

We understand that your mouth is your personal space, and a dental visit is quite the intrusion.  But we believe it is our responsibility to show patients that they can have a great experience while caring for their oral health.

Do you really want to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel your dental treatment?  The key to a better dental experience is to give your senses something better to do while we work on your teeth.  We have integrated the following protocol to keep your mind off your dental treatment:


Nitrous Oxide Sedation 

Our office provides Nitrous Oxide for your comfort, free of charge.

Within 3 minutes of supplying nitrous, its relaxation and numbing properties develop.  The effects of Nitrous Oxide are completely reversible; we will supply excess Oxygen after your treatment flush the Nitrous Oxide from your respiratory and vascular systems.  Some patients should not use Nitrous Oxide; we will discuss with you during your visit.


Patient-First Office Design

The interior design of our office is thoughtfully planned to diminish the visual cues of traditional dental clinics.  Our environment is recognized as warm and residential.  Our equipment is installed behind closed cabinetry, and we keep hoses and tool trays out of eyesight during your treatment.  Although these seem like subtleties, we deliver dentistry in this way because we find that patients have memorably better dental experiences when performed  with a level of visual discretion.


Streaming Music & Hi-Fi Headphones

At each dental chair, you have access to iPods with streaming  Music, so you can catch up with your favorite artist or stand-up comedian while we work on your teeth.  The headphones are high-fidelity and noise-isolating, to keep out the dental sounds and keep you tuned into the music.
