Chai – Therapy Dog
We’re excited to introduce our canine member of the Brentwood Dental Excellence Team-Therapy Dog Chai. Chai is an F1b, hypoallergenic Golden Doodle who has received special training to behave as a therapy dog in our office. We’ve brought Chai onto our team to help make the office more comfortable for patients who experience dental anxiety. Therapy dogs have been shown to reduce blood pressure, lower stress and anxiety levels, and stimulate the release of endorphins. We know that there is a large percentage of the population that avoids the dentist due to fear. At Brentwood Dental Excellence, we offer a variety of methods to help calm the anxious patient including sedation dentistry and nitrous. A therapy dog is just one more way we hope to bridge the gap for a very brave patient who is looking to rebuild the relationship with dentistry. Chai is available to sit with patients during their appointments. Please let us know if you’d like to schedule a future appointment…with Chai.
