US dentists are finding that email and the smell of fresh cookies are helping to take away the pain of the drill.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper, the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry has found that sending and receiving emails and surfing the web makes the visit much easier for patients.
"People are relaxed and it makes operations easier," said a spokesperson.
The fragrance of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies wafts through the surgery, while patients listen to music through headphones, access their email and surf the internet while getting crowns or porcelain veneers.
They can also watch a movie through 'virtual reality' glasses, and control specially designed relaxation chairs.
Although the treatment is expensive, the Atlanta Center said that it is experiencing no shortage of customers.
