Put The GD Phone Away

We all know someone with a dental phobia or someone who puts off seeing the dentist for years. But dentists all over are in luck, Time Magazine recently conducted a survey. The results of the survey determined that 59% of people would rather have a dental appointment, than sit next to someone who’s talking on their cell phone. (I don’t blame them!) Seriously how annoying is it when you’re in a waiting room of a doctor’s office, minding your own business and the lady beside you is asking to speak with a manager on her phone call beside you? What really grinds my gears is people who have their phone on speaker phone in a public place… How rude..

Now this blog post isn’t very dental related but it’s good to spice things up a bit. I will mention a few things regarding the fear of the dental office though, whether you’ve had a bad experience with a dentist or just hate the noises; Galt Dental Care has a solution for you! Watch a movie while having your treatment completed, listen to some music on your headphones, we even offer sedation now… You can really do anything to distract yourself, just don’t talk on the phone in our waiting room or in our ops.
