Longmont Dental Loft’s Office Therapy Dog is a Hit!

Does going to the dentist make you anxious? Longmont Dental Loft’s CCP (Chief Calming Pawfficer) Bentley to the rescue!
This Australian Labradoodle plays an important role as the office therapy dog at Dr. Adrienne Hedrick’s dental office in Longmont: Bentley interacts with patients who enjoy being around dogs by snuggling up to them and providing a comfortable presence to make them feel at ease.
Bentley’s calming presence is par for the course at this down-to-earth Longmont dentist office that prioritizes having a warm and comforting atmosphere that also exudes an electric vibe with positive energy. And you’ll see people smiling. At the dentist!
Longmont Dental Loft also prides itself on having state-of-the-art technology including a CEREC for same-day crowns, a Cone Beam CT machine that takes 3D images unlike a traditional X-Ray machine, and everything is digital so patients don’t have to take those weird “gummy” impressions. Instead, they get scanned by a computer.
Having tooth pain? Dr. Hedrick provides every patient with her personal cell phone number because she truly loves interacting with them. This Mile High Mama of two boys loves outdoor activities such as yoga and cycling. Staying active is an important part of her family’s life and Bentley loves to tag along for outdoor and office adventures. “Just yesterday we had a new patient who put out a message on Next Door asking for dentist recommendations and someone said, ‘Dr. Hedrick is great and has an adorable dog.’”
Bentley has returned to the office with several COVID precautionary measures in place. This hypoallergenic cutie hangs out in the back office so he’s not around patients until he is requested (which happens a lot). He puts people so at ease that the Longmont dental office even gets a lot of teens asking for Bentley to sit on their laps during procedures.
Dr. Hedrick says “In the past year we’ve had three patients adopt Australian Labradoodles as a result of meeting Bentley.”
Healthy teeth and a cute dog? Longmont Dental Loft has got dentist visits all figured out!
