What makes a patient comfortable in our office? Well, knowing a patient by name when they come in the door. That's very important to patients. That's very important to us to be able to greet them with familiarity right off the bat. When you enter one of our operatories you're going to be offered a pillow and a blankey, that takes the edge off of a lot of anxiety right there to get tucked in. If a patient's having a difficult time getting comfortable, we're going to call in someone else from another part of the office to sit with that patient and just comfort them a little bit. When we finish our appointments, patients are offered a hot moist towel. They'll feel like they're flying first class on the airplanes and they really like that.
Fortunately, Dr. Jennifer Perkins and our seasoned dental team have lots of experience in putting folks at ease. To schedule a stress-free dental appointment, call Jennifer Perkins, DDS at 256-801-0002 to know more how Dr. Jennifer Perkins can help you relieve dental anxiety.
