We’re well aware of the fact that going to the dentist isn’t really most people’s favorite activity… it probably doesn’t even rank in the top 10.
It’s common to have negative feelings associated with sitting in the dentist’s chair, some of which can even be traced back decades to one single memory from childhood. Whatever the reason is, we get it and we respect it.
So, instead of trying to explain why you shouldn’t be anxious about coming to see us or downplaying your feelings in some way, we do everything we can to make your visit as easy and stress-free as possible. We know that words won’t change your perception of the dentist, but having new, positive experiences just might.
From the feedback we hear from patients and read in their reviews, we know that we’ve been successful in improving many people’s feelings about going to the dentist and here’s why…
1. Our Gentle Approach
Here at One Mag Smile, one of our biggest priorities is treating each person with patient, gentle care. We’re never in too big of a rush to answer your questions, clearly explain what we’re doing or ensure your comfort. Our job is not only to deliver dental treatments, but to do whatever is necessary to put you at ease while you receive those treatments.
2. The View
It might not be as important as a gentle approach to dentistry, but one of our patients’ favorite things about One Mag Smile is our awesome view of Lake Michigan the Chicago skyline.
It’s not just impressive when you walk in the door though – a lot of people find it relaxing to have such a beautiful vista to focus on while they’re receiving treatments. Of course we also have a TV mounted over the dental chair if you’d prefer a different sort of distraction.
3. The Bonus Massage
In our opinion, the dental office should feel more like a tranquil spa than a clinical doctor’s office, and you can feel that as soon as you enter. From the modern, inviting decor to the sleek fixtures, you’ll probably notice that this doesn’t look like the other dentist’s offices you’ve been to before.
Then you’ll sit in the chair and really wonder where you are. Yes, the rumors are true – our dental chairs are massage chairs. We figured if you’re going to sit here for a little while, why not make that time super relaxing? Heck, it might be the only time you have to sit back and do nothing all week.
4. The Personal Attention
One thing you should know about One Mag Smile is that it’s a “boutique” dental practice. What does that mean exactly? Well, it’s really just a fancy way of saying that we’re a small practice that values personal attention and really knowing our patients. You’re definitely not just a number or a name in the appointment book to us – we know each and every one of our patients by name and go the extra mile to show you that we care about your well-being.
We’re not really ones to toot our own horns, but we thought you might want to know why our wonderful patients continue to come back to One Mag Smile year after year.
