PRLog - May 31, 2012 - MIAMI -- Imagine if the sights, sounds and smells of the dentist office closely resembled those of a world-class spa. Relaxation dentistry is an emerging trend which aims to remove the fear and anxiety associated with dental visits by creating a welcoming and relaxing environment for the client.
Dr. April Patterson (Dr. Patty) is launching a new dental boutique day spa off North Federal Highway in East Fort Lauderdale that promises to pamper clients with state-of-the-
Each client is personally greeted upon arrival and treated to the complimentary champagne, wine and Nespresso coffee bar. As an iDental office, clipboards have been replaced with Apple iPads which allow the doctor to electronically capture client information. A locker room stocked with complimentary robes and slippers and a private shower area is available before and after treatments.
Dr. Patty employs a “Director of Client Happiness” on staff to act as a concierge for clients, tending to their every need from limo transportation to and from appointment to making lunch or dinner reservations.
Client perks in the exam room include: a refreshing lemon-scented warm towel service; silky paraffin wax treatment for hands; temple massage therapy, cucumber eye press and personalized movie and music selections.
The jarring sounds of buzzing drills have been replaced with nearly noiseless, electronic tools and further silenced by relaxing music available in surround sound and via complimentary ear buds. The malodorous scent of chemicals has been replaced by aromatherapy diffused through the office ventilation system and the use of odor-free, eco-friendly products.
Dr. Patty’s extensive menu of dental services includes Six Month Smiles, cosmetic braces that straighten teeth in a quarter of the time of ordinary orthodontics;
In addition, Dr. Patty administers Facial Rejuvenation treatments including Restylane and Botox. Her aesthetician is available for facials, body treatments, permanent eye/lip make-up, and complimentary brow waxing. She also employs a full-time eyelash extension specialist.

Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique features the latest dental technology on the market. Dental procedures are televised; digital photography and intra-oral cameras are used to give clients an up-close look into their mouths for the early detection of cavities; the Digital Smile Makeover allows clients to leave with a real photo of what their new smile would look like after a cosmetic treatment; computerized shade matching, state-of-the-
