We’ve had TV’s in the operatories of my office for years. Like almost a decade. Until 2011 the TV’s were limited to the reception area and my two operatories. If you wanted to watch TV, you had to be seeing me, not having your teeth cleaned. Last year, that changed.
I got my teeth cleaned about a month ago while watching TV. I switched from “The Talk” to CNN. I pretty much watched presidential politics for the better part of an hour while Kelly cleaned my teeth. Although watching presidential politics is pretty painful, the cleaning was not. And the experience was pretty dang cool. I was distracted from what Kelly was doing in a really nice way. Except for having to watch Newt Gingrich.
In case you’re wondering, we have other channels besides CNN, Fox News or MSNBC. You can watch soaps, ESPN or Spongebob. Whatever you like. The point is to distract you from having your teeth worked on. Not that we plan on it being uncomfortable. In fact, we’re pretty proud of how comfortable treatment is at our office. But if you can watch your favorite TV show while someone lovingly crafts an exquisite, custom made dental restoration or carefully and painlessly cleans ever nook and cranny of your teeth and gums, why wouldn’t you?
