|What if you actually looked forward to a visit to the dentist's office? What if a trip to the dentist was just as relaxing as a trip to a posh spa?These fantasies are now a reality with the advent of dental spas. Aromatherapy and massage are just a few of the indulgent amenities offered by dental spas.Many patients find their dental spa experience so pleasant, they never want to leave!|
Imagine reclining in a plush chair, covered with a warmed blanket and indulging in a foot massage while enjoying aromatherapy and listening to soothing music…all while having your teeth cleaned! This is no longer a fantasy scenario, as hundreds of modern dental practices are now offering spa-like amenities with the advent of the "dental spa".
Recent years have seen the addition of such comfort-enhancing details as personal satellite televisions, DVD players, and personal headsets to general, cosmetic, and restorative dental practices, but the dental spa takes this idea miles further. Practices are now offering personal beverage and snack service (one dental spa even boasts wine!), roaming masseurs, aromatherapy designed to soothe nervous patients, water fountains in treatment rooms, and even the occasional manicure, pedicure, or BOTOX® treatment.
So why do dentists invest in spa amenities for their practices? Experience shows that patient numbers grow dramatically when patients actually want to visit the dentist. We all know that it is recommended that we visit the dentist twice yearly, but many of us forgo these visits for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is a fear of discomfort that is only enhanced by the sights, sounds, and smells associated with the dentist's office. Whether you suffer from dental anxiety or you just can't seem to make the time to see your dentist, emerging dental spa amenities may make that bi-annual visit something to look forward to, rather than to postpone.
