In Harrisburg, North Carolina, the Smile Cabarrus dental office goes out of their way to help patients relax -- and have even brought in a “dental dog” named Atkins to put patients at ease.
Atkins is a trained service dog who makes a big impact on patients by distracting and comforting them. Even people who are afraid of the simplest dental procedures are able to calm down when Atkins is there.
Atkins is so well trained that she’s able to give demonstrations and even lets the hygienists check her teeth, which leads to smiles all around. (WCNC)
