Soothing Environment

Rye Smiles for Life offers a warm and modern dental office to provide all of our patients with a relaxing and comfortable visit. Our warm and caring team will make you feel special from the moment you walk through the door. From your first call to our office, you will experience our commitment to listening to our patients. At your first visit, you will have the opportunity to complete a comfort menu. Above all else, we want our patients to feel in control. We make sure you are completely numb before we start any work. We ask for your feedback to ensure painfree anesthesia, and we listen and make any necessary adjustments.

When you first arrive at our office, you will find yourself wondering if you are really visiting your dentist. Our reception area resembles a living room, where you can relax in comfort in front of a custom fireplace.

Watch TV or a Movie During Your Visit.

Our office is one of the first in the country to use the Technology Lighting Center (TLC) system. TLC is a combination operating light and viewing monitor that provides the utmost in patient comfort and flexibility. Whether in the upright or reclined position, you can relax watching DVD movies, cable television, or patient education materials, as well as digital x-rays or digital photos of their teeth on the flat panel LCD monitor. The monitor, which is mounted on a track attached to the ceiling, rotates to a vertical or horizontal position so that you always have a good view of the screen, but it remains out of Dr. Rye’s way. The glare-free operating light is directed on your mouth, not on the eyes, so that you have an unobstructed view of the monitor. You will become so relaxed while watching the monitor during your cosmetic and laser dentistry procedures that you almost forget that you are in the dentist’s office.
