Comfort and Amenities
As a modern practice with state-of-the-art equipment, we believe visiting the dentist should be as pleasant an experience as possible. Whether you arrive for a routine cleaning with one of our hygienists or a full smile makeover from our multispecialty dental team, we will strive to make you feel at ease from start to finish. Our friendly and knowledgeable dentists and hygiene team are here to help you, and you should feel comfortable asking questions as they arise. We strongly believe in open communication and education so our patients can be as well informed as possible to make the best decisions regarding their oral health. Should questions ever come up outside the office, our team is just a simple phone call or email away. In a continual effort to make your visits as comfortable as possible, Scripps Center for Dental Care has incorporated a range of patient amenities designed to entertain you and to give you peace of mind while at our office.
“I would recommend Scripps Center for Dental Care to anyone that truly want the best service and medical treatment for them and their families. The entire team here sets the bar for other dental practices. I wish everyone could have as good of an experience as this, then maybe dentistry wouldn’t be as worrisome for many.”
If you have additional questions about how we make your comfort a top priority, or if you would like to schedule a consultation with one of our dental professionals, please contact our office today.
Time seems to pass a little faster when listening to your favorite music or watching an enjoyable film. Therefore, we offer Bose® headphones, HD cable television, HD Music Choice, and other media options in each of our treatment rooms. Relax, play your favorite album, and let our team handle the rest.
Some procedures require a greater time commitment than others. To make longer-lasting appointments more comfortable, we provide dental chairs with soft, soothing memory foam. Feel free to get cozy and even take a nap—they’re designed to be as comfortable as a bed.
Pillows and Blankets
Everyone seems to have an individual temperature preference. If you tend to feel cold after a while, we have warm blankets and cushy pillows that can help you feel toasty and comfortable throughout your treatment.
Many people experience discomfort as a result of holding their mouth in an open position for an extended period of time. To aid relaxation during procedures, we offer bite rests for your jaw. This device can be a welcome relief if you have symptoms of TMJ disorder or lockjaw. If you believe you may have one of these conditions, we may be able to help. Just let us know.
Numbing your mouth for a dental procedure can make the process simple and painless; however, once the treatment is over, a desensitized mouth can be a concern. If you tend to bite your lips, cheeks, or tongue when anesthetized, or if you dislike the sensation, OraVerse® can significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to regain normal feeling.
