Fort Lauderdale dental spa creates relaxing experience

Patients get treatment, pampering

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Jennifer Rossman is relaxing in a chair, wearing a fluffy robe and soft slippers. 

Slices of soothing cucumber rest on her eyelids while her hands are gently dipped in warm paraffin wax. 

Amid the relaxing sound of music, she hears something else -- the voice of her dentist.

Jennifer is getting her teeth cleaned while enjoying a spa-like experience at Dr. Patty's Dental Boutique.

"I've been treating people for years and thought there has to be a better way to do this," said Dr. April Patterson, owner of the boutique.

Patterson came up with a one-stop shopping dental office where patients can get permanent makeup, facials, massages, eyebrow threading, full body waxing, eye lash extension, and treatments with a variety of cosmetic injections.

"The experience itself is a pleasant experience, so you don't dread coming," said Rossman. "I would definitely get many services done and get my teeth cleaned at the same time."

The cost of the procedures is in line with cosmetic and dental costs in the area.

"I only see a half dozen or so patients a day because I want to give my clients my undivided attention, so we do require that they secure their appointment with a credit card," said Patterson.

"It's just relaxing and it takes the stigma out of going to the dentist," said Rossman.

To reach the dental boutique, call 954-524-2300.
