Finding new “people” when you move to a new city is tough. You have to replace the hair stylist, the doctor, the dry cleaner, and of course, the dentist. As most people are a little nervous about visiting the dentist to begin with, you definitely do your research before jumping right in. But, if you are in the Rittenhouse Square area, consider your research done!
To find my new dentist, I started on my insurance company’s website and searched by location. Enter, Rittenhouse Dentists (1801 Pine Street). I loved that they were open after work two nights a week, so I made an appointment for a Tuesday evening teeth cleaning.
From the start of my visit, I enjoyed my experience thoroughly. The friendly receptionist sent me away with a cool iPad in hand to fill out all of my medical info, which I loved. The waiting room had a Keurig machine and big, comfy chairs to relax in.
I was taken back to be seen as soon as I was finished my paperwork. The dental hygienist had a Pandora station crooning John Mayer & Ray LaMontagne so I was instantly relaxed. I was offered a pillow for my head and a Paraffin Wax treatment on my hands while I got my teeth cleaned – which was, well, amazing. Two of my major complaints about the dentist are normally the bright overhead light and dry lips. The hygienist solved both of those problems with she gave me safety sunglasses to protect my eyes AND coated my lips with chapstick not once, but twice, during my cleaning. (Am I at a spa, or the dentist?) They were definitely taking every step to make my experience as painless as possible!
When the doctor came in, she was friendly and to the point, which I appreciated. When I got home, my boyfriend definitely was confused with how relaxed I was coming from a dental appointment! 🙂 Overall, my experience was great and highly recommend Rittenhouse Dentists if you’re looking for a new dentist in the Rittenhouse area.
