Our dental office, serving the greater Charleston area, has been designed to make you feel at home.View transcript
DR. JOHN F. RINK: As a new patient, when you come to our practice you will drive up to our office and you will find that it is in a very natural setting with trees. Our offices blend in with the environment and it is a very soothing and relaxing place to come. We tried to create an environment that would make you feel like you where in your den at your home because we want our patients to feel at home here and feel comfortable. And as you come in you will meet one of our front office staff, usually either Jenny or Natasha, and they will great you with a warm smile and as you come back into our office you will see different things, you will see some artwork that we really like, and you will see my accreditation documentations, and also you will see some pictures of teeth on the walls, some before and afters that we are real proud of so that you can get a feel for our work and what we do here. For cleaning appointments you are going to meet a dental hygiene staff that is excellent and while you are here we will try to do everything we can to help you to relax. We have massage pads in our chairs; we give hand massages with those little warm mitts. Many of our patients feel like this is one of the few times in their day they really get a chance to really wind down. And if you have the opportunity to see me for some of the services I provide, we are going to do things to really try to make you comfortable for that experience as well. We have DVD glasses; virtual reality glasses so that you can watch movies as you are having your dental procedures performed. Some of our patients we use nitric oxide gas to help them relax and we also have oral sedation, which are pills or tablets that you can take prior to an appointment to help make the procedure more comfortable and relaxing for you.
