Patient Comfort

Your Comfort is Our priority

At Black Hills Area Dental, our top priority is your comfort. We offer modern, soft and very comfortable dental chairs in each of our treatment rooms. During your appointment, feel free to user our complimentary headphones to listen to music from our library. If you’d like to watch a movie instead, we offer that option as well. Each of our treatment rooms has its own TV that you can watch what you want. We also make available blankets, pillows and even protective sunglasses – all to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible during your dental visit.

Afraid of going to the dentist?

Some patients experience dental fear – but at our office, you don’t have to worry about that. If you’d like our great dental assistants will even hold your hand during your procedure if you want them to! One thing you’ll notice about our doctor is the human touch – we genuinely care about you and dental health.

Once your appointment is complete, we’ll give the opportunity to use our minted mouth rinse, and take some complimentary over-the-counter Tylenol or Ibuprofen. We take patient comfort very seriously at Black Hills Area Dental. At our office, it’s all about you, the patient, and your comfort. Let us exceed your expectations!

What to expect

If, during your dental appointment, you need injections, don’t worry. We strive to provide virtually pain-free injections. The way this is done is by the application of a topical anesthetic gel to the gums, giving time for the area to become numb before a shot is given. This will help to remove discomfort during the injection. Most patients say that receiving an injection this way feels like a tiny pinch. We want you to experience as little discomfort as possible – we will make sure that work doesn’t start until area to be worked on is numb. Gone are the days of “white knuckling” through dental procedures – which, unfortunately, some patients have had to endure in the past.

At Black Hills Area Dental, you can rest assured that you’ll be listened to and heard, and never rushed through your visit. When your appointment is done, you might leave with a numb lip or cheek, but we also look forward to you leaving with a smile knowing that you got great service, and that your appointment was done with as little discomfort as possible.
