Patient Comfort

Philadelphia Dentist

Two words describe our approach to your comfort: we listen. We want you to always feel in control when you are in our office. You will be completely numb before we start any work! We ask for your feedback to ensure pain-free anesthesia, and we will make any necessary adjustments.

When you first come into our office, you will have the opportunity to fill out a comfort menu to let us know which of our options you would like. We also provide a Please Handle Me with Care form that will let us know what makes you feel uneasy about your dental care. Dr. Tau and our team are dedicated to ensuring your safety and comfort.

In our waiting room, you will find yourself wondering if you are visiting your dentist or still in your living room, as you relax in comfortable chairs and watch television on a flat-screen TV.

Our refreshment center provides cool or hot beverages and snacks to enjoy before or after your visit. To help you ignore any sounds that may make you feel uncomfortable, we offer iPods with personalized playlists that you can use to listen to some of your favorite music.

You can relax and feel pampered with the soothing massage features of our treatment chairs.

You can watch a show or one of the many movies in our DVD library on the TV monitor during your visit. Many of our patients have said that this makes their visit fly by! In addition, some parents have told us that this is the only quiet time they get to sit down and watch something relatively uninterrupted!

The newest addition to our comfort menu is the ability to have Dr. Tau use OraVerse. OraVerse is the first and only product of its kind to rapidly reverse the effects of your local anesthetic so you can feel, speak, smile and drink normally in approximately half the time. It has been proven to accelerate the return of normal sensation and function following routine dental treatment.

If you need additional help to overcome dental anxiety, Dr. Tau can prescribe oral medication or use nitrous oxide (laughing gas) during your visit. When you are finished, we will provide you with hot, moist towels to clean up.
