(Newser) – Who said going to the dentist had to be boring and/or terrifying? A dental office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has turned getting your teeth inspected into a luxurious event, complete with champagne, massages, and a personal concierge who will make you limo and dinner reservations, reports the Sun Sentinel. Dr. Patty's Dental Boutique also offers Botox and facials along with your routine cavity check.

The unique dental facility, housed in a former spa, is "an example of piggy-backing emerging upscale customer services with traditional professional services," reports Cindy Kent. Explains the owner, "If a client is already here and is confident about the service they're getting, then they're likely to seek other services from that same source." The office even provides its own app that enables customers to schedule an appointment. (The other side of the coin: Read about a dentist accused of pulling out her ex-boyfriend's teeth.)
