Dental anxiety may be another silent factor in the study showing that a quarter of children in California have never visited a dentist. One of my greatest fears as a child was going to the dentist. I remember sitting in the waiting room hearing the screaming kids, the sound of the screeching dental drill and feeling tense. When my name was called, tears welled in my little eyes. By the time the dentist entered the exam room, I cried in terror until my embarrassed mother carried me out.
At that point, she could have easily nixed professional dental care. Some parents might have but instead she found a highly recommended dentist with video games and toys in the waiting room, Disney movies playing in the treatment rooms and Sony Walkman headphones on the dentist chairs. Needless to say, we carry those dental anxieties into our adulthood. Anytime, I see a new dentist that anxiety rushes back and my past pain experiences do too. I’ve walked out of many dentist offices, but there is hope.
Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, the best dentist in Beverly Hills, has a magical way of making those anxieties disappear the moment you enter what I like to call his Dental Spa. The place feels like the inside of a Day Spa. In the waiting room, you can sit for a relaxing cup of tea, listen to calming Zen-like music and browse the peaceful space that resembles an art gallery.
Patients say they feel pampered when they sit down in the treatment room with Dr. Maddahi. You can receive a massage to calm your nerves. That screeching drill that scared me in the past, no longer exists in Dr. Maddahi’s dental spa because he uses a quiet laser drill that does not require anesthesia. It takes 10 minutes to have a cavity filled, and you don’t go home feeling like you have a fat lip. Dr. Maddahi, a leading cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills, uses the latest technology to take care of your teeth and mouth in a gentle manner. His entire philosophy and dental practice is focused on not only transforming your past experiences with bad dentists but also transforming the care you receive to give you limitless possibilities to achieve the smile you have always dreamed of. Dr. Maddahi has found that with his philosophy of gentle care utilizing the latest technology in cosmetic dentistry, his patients heal quicker and happier.
