Name That Tune
Despite our valiant efforts to make visiting the dental office a fun experience that you look forward to with eager anticipation, it seems that there are still people that dread going to the dentist!
We are up to the challenge, however and are always trying to figure out ways to make your visits here more enjoyable. One of our favorite distractions to offer our valued patients is music. Not just boring dental office music but music genres that you get to select…if you want. With the availability of streaming music platforms, we can create almost any genre or specify almost any artist and the music of choice is played. Our current music streaming program of choice is Pandora. Each operatory ( we must do something about changing the name from operatory to something less clinical…but, I digress) is equipped with a computer that allows each dentist or hygienist to play music that appeals to the patient who is in the chair. It’s fun to find out the musical tastes of our patients….and our staff! It’s a virtual Name That Tune potpourri here on some days.
You can go from one room to another and then back to the front desk and experience country, indie and classic rock all within the space of our office. Patients love being able to select music that helps them to relax or music that helps distract them. Being able to choose the music gives them a little sense of control over the environment…an environment that often feels very much out of their control!
We still get patients that bring their MP3 player with ear buds to listen to their playlist, but as more and more of our patients realize that we offer any kind of music that they like, fewer of them are bringing their tunes with them. They get to be the DJ for their dental appointment.
So, if it’s time for you to make your dental appointment at Family Dental Care Park Ridge, be prepared to be able to select the music genre that works for you! We want you to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible and, we think music can help in that effort!
If you have any questions about our office or any dental questions, just give us a call at 847-692-6800 or email us at info@ParkRidgeDDS.com and we would be happy to help!
And remember, as always…we LOVE making you smile!
