Default serenity dentistry spa

I just visited Serenity Dentistry Spa in Spanish Spring. Really like the high tech office and staffs. Need feedback from other Villagers before I make a schedule.

We have been going to Dr. Loung for some time now and absolutely love her and the beautiful high tech office. Connie takes care of all insurance issues and we feel like we are family. I highly recommend Serenity Dental Spa!!!

When an office buys an expensive piece of equipment they have to be sure they increase their income to cover its costs. Orthopedic offices with MRI's do more MRI's than offices without one would order. Gyn's with bone density machines will tell you than you need a scan more often than those without one. You've got to make money on the investment. I am very cautious about any medical professional who encourages use of their own shiney new machine when last year they didn't tell me to go elsewhere to get the service they were not able to supply in house. When did dentists become spa directors? Is that covered in dental school or marketing school and what does it say about the priority of the people running the office

The term "spa" has many implications, some of which are sorely needed in most dental practices where many of us have been brutalized over the years by dentists that should have been limited to working in a blacksmith shop, shoeing horses.

Spas typically promote whole-body and mind wellness, not pain quadrupled by the stress and insult of being told "you can't be feeling that....the novacaine is working" (never mind the high pitched drill sounds piercing thru every nerve in your body).

Spas promote relaxation, not fear of being worked on by somebody who denies they're causing horrendous pain and apparently cares nothing about that.

Spas would also not have that horrible antiseptic smell smack its patrons in the face as they walk in, reminding them of every horrible dentistry experience they've ever had. Smells can remind us of past experiences just as much as old songs on the radio remind us of all the details of where we were 40 years ago when we heard it first.

I think the dentist mentioned is a caring, compassionate person to set up her practice as she has. If patients thought it were a farce, they wouldn't be going there and recommending it to others as is the case many times here.

And if you think the dentist has bought newer, digital/computerized imaging equipment only to rake in more bucks, maybe when it's time to get a mammogram, you or your wife should look for a provider that uses the mammogram machinery of 20-30 years ago instead of the state-of-the-art digital/computerized ones in use today.

We've been going there about a year now and really like Dr. Luong and her staff!
The "spa" experience is little more than soothing music and a calming video to watch while in the chair plus a warm towel when you are finished! We love it! Her rates are lower than what we were paying in NC two years ago!

Wife and I are both patients. Found Dr Luong first here on TOTV and were also sceptical about the "Spa". Personally think she should ditch that name as it spooks some people (including me) . That being said , we have been patients for 18 months and have both been very pleased with every aspect of the practice .

My husband and I,are patients of dr. luong. We love her. The office staff is very friendly and Connie is wonderful. She checks out everything about your insurance and you know how much you owe. I am deathly afraid of dentists and her practice put me at ease they are the only practice that I found that has gas. When you need a crown she has it ready that day. No having a temp on and waiting a couple of weeks to get the permanent put in. Mine fit the first time. She sent me to Dr Clause for a root canal and she was wonderful too. All I can say is wonderful experience with serenity dental spa. Love them.
