Our Dental Care Team in Omaha, NE
Greetings from (perhaps) the happiest dental care office on earth! (We’re not positive about the “earth” part, but we certainly are happy!) This may sound strange, but our team’s primary goal is to have fun. We always strive to provide a cheerful environment, while offering the best dental care possible. To achieve these objectives, our dental care patients must be relaxed, comfortable and happy, too. Even one unhappy patient means an unhappy office, and we can’t abide by that. Our office’s motto is; “Dentistry shouldn’t be scary. Be nice, don’t hurt anyone, don’t make anyone uncomfortable and the patients will appreciate our service.” We understand that receiving dental care is difficult for the great majority of patients because of fear, or the idea of a painful experience.
So, how do we turn the fearful into the cheerful, and thus achieve our goals? By carefully listening to your fears and desires. By applying a cherry-flavored gel to numb your gums, so injections, given slowly and gently, don’t hurt. By offering conscious sedation (where Halcion, AKA Triazolam is used to make you relaxed and create amnesia so you probably won’t remember), should you desire. By promising to instantly stop care when you tell us. In short, by each of us focusing all of our attention and effort on our patients’ well being and happiness. Our mission, in all, is to keep our patients smiling a happy, healthy smile.
