Baltimore Dentist Has A Comfort Animal

My dentist has a comfort animal and does not even know it.

In Dr. Murphy's office there is a beautiful chocolate lab puppy, just a few months old, that gets lots of attention from the staff and the patients.

 

 

 Tucker HomeRome

 

You don't have to ask twice to have Tucker brought out from his crate and enjoy the affection and pleasure this beautiful animal brings to everyone.

 

While in the chair and chatting with one of the staff, I was told about a very anxious, nervous  patient...not at all comfortable being in the dentist's office.

 

Upon request Tucker was brought out and instinctively knew what was needed.

He stayed calm and quiet with the patient during the waiting period and the entire procedure.

Anyone who knows dogs, knows that a puppy is quite frisky and ready to play.  But Tucker sensed the angst and was able to put this patient at ease. 

 

 

How wonderful that Dr. Murphy  has a comfort animal to give even better care to his many dental patients. 

 

Does your dentist have a comfort animal.

I’m glad everybody stayed calm relatively. I’ve seen much worse to have at a dentist office. well, maybe not, but I can think of much worse about going to the dentist

I have never seen a puppy in a dentist office or any other medical office.  I bet Tucker is a wonderful addition and helps many patients.  Even the ones that don't need help would enjoy Tucker!

Good morning Margaret. Such a great story. The puppy helps patients and is getting socialized too.

An Idabel OK Broker ~ Judi K Barrett It is a happy office to go in. He is out of sight unless a request is made to bring Tucker out.

Sheila Anderson It is a brilliant way to socialize Tucker...lots of attention, good company and there is a dog walker who comes in twice a day.

I thought of you when writing about Tucker.

My dentist does not have a comfort animal. I've never really thought about it, but what a wonderful concept. I'm not nervous in a dentist's office, but I'd enjoy communing with any dog that was there.

I'm thinking the perfect comfort animal for a dentist's office would be a cat which would sit in your lap while you're being drilled.  But, that pooch is a good start!

Margaret,

I love, love love the concept.  This is definitely a forward thinking dentist, there is a lot of angst at the dentist...A

I have heard of comfort animals at the dentist, but mine doesn't have one.  Tucker looks adorable.

Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland I think that's wonderful.   I wish Dr. Murphy was a little closer so I could be a patient too.

Myrl Jeffcoat I love my cat but not in a dental office. It would be tough to keep the feline off of the instruments, equipment etc.
