What are the Benefits of a Therapy Dog?
Dr. Marty Williams understands that the human-animal bond can be a therapeutic source of treatment for his patients. Research has shown that the use of an assisted animal for therapy has been known to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, relieve anxiety, and improve mood. The use of animal assisted therapy has been widely used in the medical field for many years. At Sierra Dental, our use of Charlie as a therapy dog is cutting edge in the dental industry.
Charlie’s presence allows Dr. Marty Williams and his staff provide an option to our patients to relieve their stress, fear, and anxiety without the use of medications. Our patients who have benefited from Charlie’s presence feel calmer and relaxed during their dental exams and cleanings. This has improved their experience and given them an overall better dental visit.
