Parents usually have trouble getting their children into the dentist chair without trouble, but one doctor has created an environment that kids can’t resist.

Going beyond kid-friendly murals, Dr. Louis Cooper’s office in Rye Brook features movie screens on the ceiling and plenty of gaming options in the waiting room, creating a stress-free environment for families.

Dr. Cooper moved his city practice to Westchester with a vision to reinvent the experience of going to the dentist.

“The reduction of stress is key, you can't get to the mouth without getting to the mind,” he says.

Whether treating young or adult patients, he says he uses the same philosophy.
