Comfort Dentistry, Worry Free Dentistry

The no-stress option for your dental exams!

If the trip to the dentist gets your heart rate up, Southridge Dental offers a new option: a relaxing and peaceful environment available for all appointments!

Rather than sleepless nights, fear, and paralyzing anxiety just thinking about your upcoming dental appointment, think about a pain-free, anxiety-free, and comfortable, relaxing experience. We understand a “fear of dentists,” and we also understand that even under the best of circumstances, nobody gets excited about going to the dentist.

We know a dental visit probably isn’t the top item on your bucket list, but we also understand how important your dental health is to your overall health. This is why we are launching a Comfort Dentistry program in Kennewick, Richland, and the surrounding Tri-Cities area.

The Experience

When you first walk into our office for your appointment, you’ll be welcomed to by our friendly and compassionate employees. (They didn’t always love going to the dentist either — and that’s why we all vow to make the experience at Southridge as comfortable for you as we can!)

The first part to relaxing is having some yummy treats; that’s why we offer a treats bar! It’s a great place to start your dental visit. Our treats include:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Water
  • Apple Juice
  • Cranberry Juice
  • Assorted Cookies
  • Other Assorted Treats

Then, the comfort zone: you are shown to the exam room, and as you sit down and sink back into the dental chair, we will be right there with you, offering you the best in comfort dentistry:

  • Warm blankets (dental offices are always cold, aren’t they?)
  • Warm neck rolls
  • Warm facial towel
  • Paraffin hand wax treatment
  • Soothing lip balm
  • Pandora music
  • Netflix

It’s just like being curled up on the couch at home! Slowly drift away and relax before your treatment even begins.

Our staff goes out of their way to ensure that every patient is treated with respect, given the best dental care available, and that each patient understands their dental diagnosis and possible solutions to their issue, as well as the costs. There is no single “right” solution for every dental situation: each patient has their own unique dental needs and concerns, and we strive to address those with professionalism and compassion.

It is estimated that over 30% of the population does not go to the dentist because of dental fear. If you have a fear of the dentist, you’re not alone! As your trusted dental care partner, we are well aware of how frightening the thought of the dentist’s chair can be. With that in mind, we’ve created a physically and mentally comfortable environment at Southridge Dental. We are changing how people think about a visit to the dental office with our modern and effective comfort solutions that allow everyone to receive modern (and fear-free!) dental treatment.

We offer a number of sedation options to calm and relax you before and during each appointment. Our staff and providers always use a gentle touch and refined dentistry techniques, because we know that offering a wide range of sedation services increases the treatment benefits and your comfort.
