Haledon, NJ (PRWEB) November 14, 2012
According to WebMD, over 20% of Americans avoid dental offices and procedures purely out of preconceived fears and anxiety. There is no doubt that dental neglect can lead to many health problems, and that is why Dr. Lembo of Belmont Dental (http://www.belmontassociatesnj.com) has decided to utilize therapy dogs in hopes of alleviating common fears associated with dentists. Although they have been used at hospitals and schools for years, this is the very first dental practice in the tri-state area to introduce this groundbreaking method of dog therapy to reduce stress and anxiety during dental procedures. Upon request, patients can call ahead to have a therapy dog present during any one of their visits including a Judith Felton Memorial Award winner, Blaze.
The Judith Felton Award is given to only a single Doberman each year, but Blaze was able to overcome his humble beginnings as a rescue dog to become one of the most faithful and therapeutic companions Belmont Dental and their patients have ever seen. In only a few weeks, Blaze and his team of comforting canines have been able to produce surprising results. Dr. Lembo of Belmont Dental states: “We want our patients to feel calm and comfortable at any cost. The therapy dogs and their soothing presence have helped many of our patients to set aside their anxiety and get their heads exactly where they need to be before they even sit down in the chair. This has encouraged many of our more reluctant patients to return for routine visits and checkups, which will greatly increase their overall quality of dental health.”
The word is quickly spreading throughout the client base. Route 72’s research and development team have no doubt that Belmont Dental’s new stress reducing method will give them the edge they need to make a splash throughout the online marketplace as well. Jim Alamia, CEO and Founder of Route 72 Systems states: “Using licensed therapy dogs for a NJ Dentistry during a dental procedure is unheard of, which gives Belmont Dental the niche they need to make a strong presence in their field. The facts are that this method is new, works, and unique. This will no doubt make this New Jersey Dentist and the practice stand out in a big way throughout the tri-state area as well as the Internet marketplace.”
