The number one reason most people avoid their visit to dentist is for fear of pain. At least I do! But these days the whole idea of ‘A visit to a Dentist’ is revolutionized. I came across this concept of a dental spa that renders cooling eye masks and back massages by an on-staff massage therapist. Not to forget the soothing classical music. Spa dentistry is a growing niche carved out by tooth doctors trying to take the bite out of going to the dentist. American Dental Association data suggest that about one-fourth of U.S. adults avoid dental visits because of fear of pain or a previous bad experience. To make the experience more comfortable, dentists have started offering things like television and headphones since some time now. Spa services are an extension of that trend. Tingly peppermint foot scrubs, herbal teas and lavender aromatherapy candles are just a few of the pampering options offered by the dentists to lighten the environment.
These days some dentists have taken the spa concept a step further by opening their offices to skin specialists offering Botox and other cosmetic procedures too.
