Sarasota Smile Design
Guests arriving at Sarasota Smile Design might forget that they are there for porcelain veneers, an implant, or a root canal. As clients walk into the lobby, a dental concierge brings them gourmet coffee or hot tea and homemade cookies or muffins. Even the heavy wooden coffee table and Baroque-style chairs create an ambiance that more closely resembles an Italian palazzo than a dental office.
Before any appointment with Dr. Jenifer Back—a dentist who divides her time between restoring smiles, publishing journal articles, and teaching functional cosmetic dentistry—patients can access the Internet in a private lounge or watch programming on the plasma-screen TV. To help ease patients' pretreatment jitters or shake loose spare change from their pockets, they can also sit in a soothing massage chair while music emanates from a surround-sound theater.
