No Strain, No Pain
- Posted on: Feb 26 2009
Sitting here in Chicago at the world famous Chicago Midwinter Meeting, helping plan the future of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. I feel very inspired that when we plan new vistas of learning and helping our members serve their patients even better.
Just read an interesting article on pain management that explains why a relaxing environment can make dental visits more pleasant.
Thank heaven for satellite radio!
It sure makes everyone happier when we give our Flax Dental patients their Bose surround sound noise elimination headphones and let them chill. Even better, when you know you have science recommending that we allow people to choose their own personalized music channel. We usually try to note which one(s) they pick–saves time in letting people relax. Some people are “surfers” ( like me) but most settle into their comfort zone.
Of course I miss the days when we were playing endless streams of comedy like Seinfeld. But when I know that we are giving our patients a more valuable ( and perhaps more entertaining ) dental visit, we are helping in ways that dentistry never dreamed possible.
It’s truly a blessing that I get to help dreams come true on a daily basis–as well as in the future.
Until next time, keep smiling right,
