The Chill Hack | Dente Complete Dentistry

The Chill Hack

One of my patients is a definite Pro at seeing the dentist. She has definitely logged in hundreds of hours in a dental chair. But when I see her in the chair, I might as well have Buddha in the chair. Cool as a cucumber. Chill. Chill. Chill.

I noticed the relaxed state that she was in and asked her, “Do you get anxious here at the dentist?”

She replied, “I don’t allow myself to get anxious. I put the most pleasant picture in my head and focus on that picture.”So, if your most pleasant visual, is sitting in Hawaii, at the beach, drinking a Margarita, then that’s what you focus on.

Many of our patients use little hacks to stay calm during their appointment. Some people will bring their phone and listen to music, a book or a podcast.

The key is to find something that relaxes you and takes you to another place.

With the ridiculous amount of capabilities our phones have today, this is totally doable. Figure out your calming hack and bring it with you to your next appointment.

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
