When you’re running a dental practice, it’s important to consider how you can make your patients feel a little bit more comfortable while they’re in your space. It’s not uncommon for patients to be nervous about dental procedures, which means it’s your job to improve their experience in whatever ways you can.
While it’s not advisable to advertise pain-free or paintless dentistry, it is possible to give clients options for pain relief when they arrive. Whether you’re filling a cavity or performing a root canal, making sure that your patients understand all of the pain relief options available to them can help make them feel more at ease.
From there, they can make the choice of whether they need additional help to feel comfortable or not.
It’s also a good idea to reconsider your technique. Injections, for example, are one of the most anxiety-inducing parts of any dental procedure. Examining your technique and making small adjustments can make all the difference in the world for your patients and their comfort levels. Practicing good bedside manner can also make a big difference in how your patients perceive their dental experience.
