What is Your Favourite Music?

This may seem a strange question for your dentist to ask but it’s not as strange as you may think!

Improving the dental experience for all patients is key to the gentle dental ethos at macquarieDentists.

choosing your own music is just one of the ways we provide a pleasant, gentle dental experience.

From treating many patients over the years, we have found that music can play a big role in helping make dental treatment pleasant.

It is a form of diversion therapy and it works. If you are listening to music that you love, then often you are able to focus on the music and not think about what treatment you may be having.

Many patients leave our appointments commenting on how much they enjoyed the music they heard, with no care at all about what the actual treatment was. Really, it becomes quite a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

We use noise cancelling headphones for those who wish to have them, or we just have music in the background. We always try to choose music that we feel our patients will relate to, but until we get to know you, that can be hard for us to guess.

So we have created the form below for you to fill in before your appointment with us, so that we can tailor our music to your taste, whatever that may be. Alternatively, bring along your phone or device with your music on it, and we can use that to play your music.

we think of other little touches too, to help give our patients a relaxing time

  • A rug if you like
  • Lip balm to stop getting dry and sore lips
  • Regular breaks for a rinse or breather
  • Dark glasses to shield the light in your eyes and protect them
  • Time to chat and help you relax
  • No rushed treatment
  • TLC calls the day after treatment to see how you are getting on
  • Laughing gas or sedation for those who would like to feel a little more removed from what’s going on

We’d like to think of all our patients as VIP’s (very important patients) and make you feel like you’re in first class and have control over what is going on
