The dentist? Come on, none of us like it. I’m not saying we all hate it, but it’s something we could all do without. This doesn’t necessarily come from a place of fear for everyone – although it’s surely pretty high up there as a reason not to go for kids!
For a lot of us though, me included, it’s about the inconvenience. Even if your face is numb enough that you could be happy-slapped and not feel it, ensuring you feel no pain as the dentist goes to work, it can still be a boring experience. We sit and wait in that drab waiting area reading magazines from when we still had milk teeth, thinking of a million better things we could be doing with our time, before reluctantly taking that seat and opening wide.
Sitting in the waiting area at Bayan Dental, admiring the view over the Gulf, you could forget why you are here. The floor-to-ceiling windows that afford that stunning view also flood the place with so much light that even if you are a little nervous, at least you won’t be miserable, too.
Funky purple sofas and modern design do the job of livening up the waiting area at Bayan Dental, but that’s not all. On the wall behind the reception and behind the sofas, you’ll find pop-art prints by Hamad Al Saab. One of them, Ugly Betty inspired, is a brave choice to put in the waiting room of a dental clinic as it shows a girl in full orthodontic head gear. But at Bayan Dental, it just works.
At Bayan Dental they have raised the bar in the way patients are treated, both medically and hospitably. They take great pride in their highly trained dental team and state-of-the-art dental clinics. Bayan Dental was established in 2005 and boasts a loyal and growing patient base of thirty-three thousand. They have three clinics in Kuwait – Salmiya, Sharq, Egaila – and are looking to expand further locally as well as throughout the GCC. They were the first medical company in Kuwait and the Middle East to be ‘green business certified’ and were also awarded ‘Superbrand’ status in 2010. The doctors at Bayan Dental are all U.S. certified specialists and they offer a comprehensive list of products and services using the latest technologies and techniques. Whatever your teeth need, they have it covered.
When you’re in the chair, the modern approach to dentistry continues. Not just in the medical sense, mind you. iPod docks play soothing music, helping you to forget where you are and keeping you relaxed. If you’re in for a treatment that takes a little longer, then sit back, relax and watch a movie on one of the overhead screens!
Suddenly a trip to the dentist seems less like an inconvenience and more like a little break from your work day!
