Exceptional dental care includes making the patient as comfortable as possible. There really is no need for it to be unpleasant. In fact, we here at Apple Dental Group prefer it when our patients feel as happy, relaxed and comfortable as possible. Here are 5 ways we make dentistry comfortable for you.
1. The Arrival
When you arrive at Apple Dental Group, you will be greeted with a smile. We understand that dental procedures tend to make people nervous and uncomfortable. Patients are often on edge and/or in pain when they arrive. Our friendly receptionist will check you in and get you seated in the waiting area as quickly as possible.
Don’t wait until you are experiencing pain to make an appointment. The Canadian Dental Assoc. points out that, “The dental exam is critical to your ongoing oral health …”
2. The Wait
We do everything we can to allow an appropriate amount of time for each appointment and keep things moving along so you won’t have to wait. We understand that you have a schedule to keep, too. You may be on your way to work, another appointment or in a hurry to get home. We will do everything in our power to make sure you get in and out as quickly as possible.
3. The Chair
The dental chairs and equipment at Apple Dental Group are designed with the patient’s comfort in mind. It is all state-of-the-art, clean and adjustable so that you will be comfortable from start to finish.
4. The Pain
We here at Apple Dental Group do everything we can to make your visit painless. All of our dental professionals are experienced in the latest techniques and medications used to prevent pain. If you begin to feel pain at any time during your procedure, let the dental professional know immediately. He or she will stop and do what needs to be done to make the procedure as painless as possible for you.
5. The Professionals
Our team of dental professionals love what they do and want their patients to enjoy their experience. They are welcoming and compassionate yet quick and thorough. The whole team is a collective wealth of knowledge that they are more than happy to share with you.
If you have had a bad experience in the past that has made you especially nervous about dental visits, let them know so they are aware and can ease your mind.
If you need to take a break during a long procedure, just let the dental professional know. All it takes is a raised finger to let him or her know you, or your jaw, need a rest.
We are all here to give you exceptional treatment and make sure you are comfortable.
