Comfortable Dentist Chair Minimizes Patient’s Fears (Mar, 1932)
Comfortable Dentist Chair Minimizes Patient’s Fears
NO MATTER how comfortable patients are made to feel, they will always approach a dentist’s office with some trepidation. There is good reason for this, for once in a dentist’s chair, you have to take what comes and you can’t fight back.
Taking account of the patient’s deep-seated fear, dentists are now doing as much as possible to relieve the situation. Their latest efforts have resulted in the creation of a chair which has about every possible comfort for the victims.
This new chair, shown in the accompanying photo, has the last word in upholstery. The leather pillow on which the head rests, permits the patient to sit completely at ease, while, if it happens to be summer time, he is cooled by a breeze from an electric fan with which the machine is equipped.
In the accompanying photo, a demonstration is being given before a group of dentists for their approval.
