Durbin Dental is one such practice that currently offers the services of a dental therapy dog. Bella, is a 1-year-old miniature Labradoodle, she has served as our resident dental therapy dog since July of last year.
Therapy dogs are being featured at an increasing number of dental practices across the country, providing a sense of ease and comfort to the anxious dental patient, children and adults alike.
Dental phobia is an intense fear that causes individuals to avoid the dentist. Several adult patients that would be classified as having “dental phobia” now come to our office because of Bella and the animal-assisted intervention she provides. The quality of life of these patients has improved because they have received much needed dental care.
