When someone is considering cosmetic dentistry, they are typically most concerned with aesthetic or health considerations. Perhaps their teeth aren’t straight, or they’ve yellowed, or they have a poor bite that’s causing joint or muscle pain. Cosmetic dentistry can address those and more issues, so that patients can enjoy a beautiful and healthy smile for years to come.
However, a great cosmetic dentist isn’t just concerned about the physical process of treatment. Dentistry is an area of medicine that causes anxiety for many people. Some studies indicate that as many as 75 percent of adults in the U.S. experience some form of dental fear; as many as 10 percent of adults experience dental phobia, which may cause them to avoid dental care completely.
At Koval & Koval, we want our patients to feel comfortable every step of the way. From the complimentary consultation, through treatment, through the final follow-up visit, we understand that a comfortable, happy patient will enjoy a more successful course of treatment than one who is fearful and stressed.
What makes Dr. Koval truly stand out in her field isn’t just her years of experience and commitment to continuing education – it’s her concern for the physical and emotional well-being of her patients. Dr. Koval listens to her patients, takes the time to help them understand every step of their treatment, and has a caring and compassionate nature that puts patients at ease.
Creating a visually appealing and soothing atmosphere also help Dr. Koval’s patients to relax. The entry to her office features a gorgeous tropical fish tank. Visitors can enjoy coffee, tea or spring water from the refreshment center. There are fleece blankets, warm neck pillows and back massaging dental chairs. After treatment, there are moist, scented towels for freshening up.
Most importantly, Dr. Koval’s nurturing personality creates a supportive environment for her patients. She understand that many people are nervous about dental procedures and takes great pride not only in her ability to create great smiles, but also in her efforts to nurture happy, worry-free patients. She loves to see her patients smile on the way in AND on the way out of her office.
