Dr Della Summers Dental Solutions is conveniently located in central downtown. It borders the beginning of residential areas, and is in a high traffic building housing the Life Labs clinic, plus many Doctors’ offices.
Our clinic is instantly different from other clinics anywhere. The reception area is designed like a residential living room, complete with wainscoting and fireplace. There is a separate children’s area, with books, a wall mounted maze, and an Xbox with dual controls. We have a Wifi Lounge for those that wish to use it, with a secure password that is given to the patients themselves.
I believe that the kindest thing we can do for our patients is to make them as comfortable as possible while in our care. I’m all about informing patients each step of the way, and try to never leave them alone, wondering “what’s next?”
The best compliment I can receive from a patient is when they say, “I feel like I was visiting my friends, rather than a dentist!” We work very hard to make that happen, as most people are fairly stressed when they come to the dental office.
