Lakeway, TX (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
In addition to offering IV sedation dentistry and a relaxing office atmosphere, the Lakeway Center for Family and Cosmetic Dentistry now has a certified massage therapist who can soothe away patients’ anxiety.
It’s estimated that 75 percent of adults in the United States experience a form of dental phobia. Because of this, the Austin dental veneers provider is constantly on the lookout for new ways to help patients relax during their dental visit.
The practice’s certified massage therapist, Kellie, worked as a dental assistant for years prior to becoming a massage therapist. Her passions have been united as she works in the business of creating beautiful smiles while soothing away the anxieties of each patient through massage therapy.
Now, Kellie offers patients a hand and neck massage before Dr. D’Alfonso starts performing any dental procedures to help patients relax before they speak to the dentist.
“A massage helps people relax and feel a lot more comfortable during their procedures,” Kellie said. “I’ve had many interactions with patients who were very concerned about their upcoming dental appointments that felt much more at ease after a hand and neck massage. We do everything we can to make sure that our patients have the most positive experience possible.”
Massage therapy in dental offices is becoming a growing trend, providing patients with a positive experience and a better memory than the sound of drilling. Dr. D’Alfonso has created a uniquely warm and pleasant environment where patients’ discomfort fades away and tension gives way to relaxation.
