Maybe going to the dentist won’t be so nerve-wracking in a Hello Kitty and Friends themed dental office.
Sanrio partnered with Parklane Dental in Temple City to become the first dental office in the country to feature Sanrio characters, bringing more bright smiles to patients of all ages.
The dental office is decorated with images of Hello Kitty, Gudetama, My Melody, Badtz Maru, Little Twin Stars, Keroppi, Pochacco and Pompompurin as dentists and hygienists with toothbrushes, floss and other props.
Patients will have the option of choosing a Hello Kitty or Gudetama-themed treatment room on a first-come, first-serve basis. The rooms are based on scheduling availability of the day, according to a news release. Appointments must be made in advance by phone and walk-ins are not accepted.
Patients can learn how to brush with My Melody, floss with Little Twin Stars and rinse with Keroppi during the "educational and memorable" dental visit.
Patients will receive Sanrio's "small gift, big smile" at the end of their visit. And the best part? There's no extra charge for the Hello Kitty and Friends experience.
Visit Parklane Dental for more information or to book an appointment.
