How can you spot a great dental appointment?

dental-appointment-3.jpgWhile driving through the city, or thumbing through a phone book, you will find that there are a lot of dental offices.  How do you know if you have found a good dental office?  As soon as you walk through the doors of Dr. Thomas L. Anderson and Associates, you will have your answer. 

We offer an experience that feels more like going to visit a friend’s home rather than going to some impersonal clinic for your dental appointment.  Our friendly, knowledgeable staff’s number one concern is the patient and more specifically the comfort and ease that should come with dental care.  Even a patient with the most severe dental anxiety can feel right at home after we have dipped their hands in paraffin hand wax, placed them on some relaxing nitrous oxide, and put on one of their favorite movies.  We realize that our patients can go visit a number of other dental offices, but our kindness and customer service shows them that we are not just a good dental office, but the best.

Once you have arrived for your dental appointment, we take you directly to our paraffin hand waxing station.  Paraffin wax is often used in salons to remove dead skin and moisturize your hands.  Once removed, your hands are left feeling soft and smooth, and with a pleasant scent!  There is no better feeling for your dry skin through the winter months, but this hand wax experience makes you feel pampered year round.  You will begin to wonder if you are at your dental appointment, or an enchanting spa! 

Once seated in our extremely soft cushioned chairs, we offer complimentary nitrous oxide, or nicknamed, “laughing gas”.  We use a mixture of nitrous and oxygen so it is safe to use, and within two to five minutes its pain killing and relaxing effects wash over you.  This gas has been found to relieve pain, anxiety, and even one’s gag reflex.  Nitrous oxide also leaves your body within three to five minutes, as opposed to some oral medications which stay in your system for long periods of time.  In a matter of minutes you can leave the office clear headed and drive yourself home without any lingering groggy effects.  Most dental offices charge a pretty penny to use nitrous oxide making patients opt to not use it.  A good dental office realizes if your dental appointment is going easier for the patient, then it’s a lot easier for us too!  This is why you will never be charged for Nitrous at our office.

After being seated and relaxed you can start watching any number of movies.  Simply lay back and watch one of your favorite movies during your treatment.  Each room is equipped with flat screen monitors on our ceiling so you don’t have to struggle to see or hear.  We always keep an assortment of new releases, classics, and music concert videos from your favorite artists.  Getting lost in a great story with unique characters can make your dental appointment time fly by!  Now that’s what I call a good dental office!
