RIVERTON, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -

A new dentist office with a spa element is having its grand opening today, and the goal is to make people feel comfortable at their appointments.

Many people are afraid of going to the dentist. This office has taken steps to make sure its patients feel safe, secure, and even a little pampered during their visit.

Dr. Crane of Rendezvous Dental noted, “Ultimately I decided that I wanted to try to create something that would make a different dental experience than what people are used to.”

Rendezvous Dental of Riverton added spa services for their patients within the clinic. They offer complimentary warm blankets and paraffin hand wax treatments to moisturize and relax sore muscles and tendons. You can also schedule a manicure, pedicure, massage, or facial to have before or after your dental visit.

“I hired a consultant who told me that it’s not being done anywhere in Wyoming, a spa dental clinic, if you will, though I know it happens in other bigger cities in Denver or Salt Lake City,” mentioned Dr. Crane.

A main piece of decor to the modern, aesthetically pleasing new office is a Disney puzzle that Dr. Crane and his son started together. It is 22.5 feet long, and took them and many others who helped, four months to complete. At the time of purchase it was the largest commercially available puzzle in the world.

“Mary Poppins said a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down in a most delightful way. I think that’s kind of what we’re shooting for. No matter what, when you go to the dentist, there are things that are medicine. They’re not necessarily going to be pleasant, but trying to create an atmosphere and environment as well as different experiences to make that a little more palatable is kind of the spoonful of sugar,” stated Dr. Crane.

The grand opening is today from 2-7 p.m. at Rendezvous Dental located at 831 W. Sunset Drive. The Roasted Bean and Cuisine is catering the open house with hors d’oeuvres. There are five giveaways to enter, including a float trip in the Grand Tetons.
