Dentist Hires A Sweet Golden Retriever To Calm Nervous Patients

Going to a dentist is something that definitely no one looks forward to, except maybe the ones that love the pain… But the majority of the people tries to delay those visits as long as they can. But, if your dentist works in the Pediatric Dentistry of Northbrook, Illinois, the teeth check up and any eventual procedure is actually a pleasant one. You are probably thinking “That is impossible!” The trick is that this dentist office has hired a very unusual assistant. No, it is not a super hot nurse in a mini skirt and a cleavage down to her belly button, but a 6-year-old Golden Retriever named Jojo.  This kind and gentle Retriever is actually a trained comfort dog, and she is the best when it comes to reducing the stress during the appointments.

Before Jojo started “working” at the clinic, patients needed nitrous oxide or sedatives to numb themselves and not freak out during the procedure. However, now, while they sit in the infamous dentist chair, they can pet Jojo and forget about stress. Thanks to Jojo, the appointments are way less stressful and are done faster, and the dentist can concentrate on his work and not on trying to calm the patient down. An interesting approach, wouldn’t you agree?
