VR Eases Patient Anxiety in Dentist’s Office

Virtual reality technology is elevating the traditional dentist experience. Located in Newport Beach, clients of Dr. Mark Olson will have the opportunity to enjoy tranquility on a simulated beach.

Whether its a check-up, a cleaning, to fill a cavity or another procedure, Dr. Mark Olson’s practice employs the Samsung Gear VR, powered by Oculus, to alleviate the stress and anxiety many feel prior to a visit to the dentist.

The immersive tool also comes as a milder alternative to sedatives as nausea is a common side effect. Through the employment of virtual reality, the dentist experience is truly transformed.

The product is flexible as it boasts a headset and a slot, through which a Samsung smartphone can be inserted for the visuals.
