Reducing Dental Anxiety


Comfortable Environment

At Floss & Fido Dentistry we understand that for many, dental appointments can be a source of significant stress, often due to traumatic past experiences.


That’s why we've reimagined the dental visit, creating a welcoming haven that prioritizes the happiness and comfort of our patients over everything else. Here's a look at how we're changing the narrative around dental care through innovative anxiety management techniques.​

  • Warm and Comforting Atmosphere: They provide a welcoming environment that contrasts with traditional clinical settings.

  • Music as a Calming Agent: Soft melodies are played to help patients relax and find peace during their appointments.

  • Art and Puzzles for Distraction: Engaging artwork and puzzles are available to divert attention from dental procedures and reduce anxiety.

  • Pet-Friendly Environment: The presence of pets in the office serves as a comforting distraction.

  • Biophilic Design: Incorporation of natural elements in the clinic’s design brings the calming essence of the outdoors inside.

  • Color and Light: The use of tranquil colors and natural light creates a serene atmosphere that eases patient anxiety.

  • Soft Textures: Gentle textures are used throughout the clinic to enhance physical comfort.

  • ‘Unofficial Visits’: The clinic encourages non-treatment visits to build familiarity and trust without the pressure of an appointment.
