Dr. Norman knew early on that she wanted to be a dentist. In fact, she remembers knowing as early as the fourth grade that dentistry was her calling. As soon as she was old enough for a job, at 16, she began working in dentistry. She got into dental school without even needing her undergraduate degree because she already knew so much about dentistry.
For many Americans, both young and old, a trip to the dentist is something to dread. The reasons behind dental anxiety range from bad past experiences to cinematic misrepresentation of the profession to even inexplicable, irrational phobia. In a quest to better patient relations, dentists across the country have worked to find new ways to help patients relax at the dentist.
A trip to the dentist doesn’t have to be something to dread. Here at Dr. Norman’s office we are transforming the experience one patient at a time. At the core of our efforts is a custom comfort plan tailored to each patient’s needs. A few of the highlights include:
Music from the patient's favorite Pandora station
Room preset to the patient's preferred temperature
Heated blanket, if desired
Complimentary nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for those with dental anxieties
