It’s Not Just a Visit, It’s an Experience!


Imagine if you didn’t have to fear about going to your dentist. In fact, imagine, after a long and stressful day from which you want to unwind and relax, that your first instinct is to call your dentist and schedule a regular hygiene appointment! Zentistry creates this kind of positive environment that will have you looking forward to every dental visit, because a Zentistry practice is a new patient experience that transcends everything you have previously encountered when visiting your dentist.

Zentistry is a collection of scientific-based principles that are focused on reducing fear and anxiety during a routine dental appointment. These methods have been long used and proven to address and reduce stress and fear from patients. A registered Zentistry practitioner, Dr. Bikoi and her team have adopted Zentistry founder’s method of “Sensory Remodeling Technique,” which guarantees patients a relaxing and calming experience when visiting their dentist’s office.

Frequently Asked Questions About Zentistry


What is Zentistry?


Imagine being unafraid of going to your dentist. Instead, imagine wanting to see your dentist after a long, stressful day.  Dr. Bikoi’s Zentistry practice is a new patient experience that transcends everything you have previously encountered when visiting your dentist.

Zentistry is a collection of scientific-based principles that are focused on reducing fear and anxiety during a routine dental appointment.

Zentistry embraces five principles in conjunction with the five senses.  

  • Sight: The design and aesthetic environment of Artistic Family Dentistry are relaxing, welcoming, and spa-like.
  • Sound: Patients will relax to the sounds of classical, symphonic music playing in our practice. On Fridays, a live pianist performs at Artistic Family Dentistry.
  • Smell: Instead of a sterile dental practice that smells of antiseptic, you’ll be treated to soft, relaxing scents, which may include lavender, eucalyptus, or citrus.
  • Touch: Zentistry uses relaxing somatosensory treatments.  Warm towels will be used to apply pressure to distinct trigger points to reduce anxiety and stress. 
  • Patient Care: Zentistry adheres to a gentle, patient-first service plan. Rather than feeling like you’re being shuffled in or out of your appointment, each patient receives soft, gentle, unrushed, and compassionate care.
