When my teens were toddlers, I remember doctors’ offices looking a bit drab, with worn wooden toys strewn across the floor and tired board books stuffed next to dog-eared parenting pamphlets.
Times have changed.
Today’s practitioners realize you really can judge a practice by its cover. So, what will make young patients feel the most at home? And, perhaps most important, what will calm parents while comforting a sick child?
Making new parents, or keeping current ones, relaxed involves entertaining and distracting the youngest visitors:
- Deploy a bright color palette
- Play lively music or videos
- Offer safe, engaging toys
And remember animals in some format (a toy tiger on a stethoscope worked wonders for my tearful youngster)
My children’s dentist office welcomes us with bold colors, a tropical fish tank, and video games. Their doctor’s office keeps the educational toys up-to-date and plays Disney and Nickelodeon cartoons in the waiting room, while the patient rooms preoccupy nervous patients with entertaining wall murals.
Your professional care is paramount. But keeping the patient calm is one way to keep Mom and Dad happy. And keep them coming back
