Meet Our Therapy Dog
We are very excited to introduce our new therapy dog, Doc! We know that many patients neglect seeking dental care due to anxiety or fears of discomfort. Therapy dogs have been shown to decrease blood pressure, lower stress and anxiety and release endorphins. Doc will be here to help provide a calming presence and make the entire dental experience a more positive one, especially for our most fearful patients. Doc is a hypoallergenic Mini Golden Doodle and is currently undergoing a 16 week intensive training program so that when he is finished he will be conditioned to be at ease in a dental office environment and will be well prepared to visit and sit with our patients.
We expect to have Doc in our office full-time and available to offer chairside cuddles by December 2020. Come to Long Hollow Dental to meet Doc and get exceptional, quality dental care.
