Good oral health can promote an overall sense of well-being. The latest trend among dentists is to offer a variety of treatments in a relaxing spa environment.

"I think this is a definite trend," said Dr. Jeff Roy, who launched 21st Century Dental Spa in Irving, among the first of its kind in the nation.

"Nobody likes to go to the dentist, so we’ve created a lot of comfortable distractions so you’re not so focused on the traditional, negative aspects of dentistry,” Dr. Roy said.

Because the total environment smells, looks, and feels very different than a traditional dental office, it might be the perfect choice for someone who is afraid to go to the dentist.
