Dr. McCarthy and her East Amherst, NY team work hard to ensure our patients are comfortable from the moment they enter our office. We all take the time to answer questions and treat people with the honesty and respect they deserve. Another way we help patients relax is by offering an alternative anti-anxiety solution – Luc! He’s our office dog, and Luc is trained to help anxious patients feel better. This means if you or a loved one suffer from dental phobia or anxiety, ask about how Luc can help. Luc is a poodle, and poodles are coated with hair! This means he has no shedding and is hypoallergenic. Even people with allergies can feel at ease around Luc. He is happy to accept his payment in the form of hugs! He loves helping patients get the dental care they need without any unnecessary fear or stress.
