Lakeway, TX (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
In addition to offering IV sedation dentistry and a relaxing office atmosphere, Austin Dental Implants now has a certified massage therapist on staff to put patients at ease before dental implant procedures.
While it’s estimated that 75 percent of adults in the United States suffer from a form of dentist phobia, Dr. Rudy Izzard, the provider of dental implants in Austin, finds innovative ways to help make his patients more comfortable while they’re in his office.
The practice’s certified massage therapist, Kellie, also works as a dental assistant for Dr. Izzard. In addition to helping create beautiful smiles for Dr. Izzard’s patients, Kellie offers hand and neck massages before the implant procedure.
“Patients are definitely more relaxed and feel a lot more comfortable after receiving a massage,” Kellie said. “Many patients come into the office tense and worried about their procedure, but they feel much more at ease after a hand and neck massage. It’s important to us that our patients have the most positive experience possible.”
Dr. Izzard said the dental practice plans to implement more tension-relieving changes as Austin Dental Implants continues to grow.
