I hope to give them the best possible outcome in a relaxed and comfortable manner, and I educate them about their oral and systemic health while allaying their fears and concerns. I want all my patients to keep their healthy teeth, replace the missing ones and change their lives by giving them confidence and pride in their smiles.” -Dr. Satko

Meet Our Therapy Dog Rowdy

Our furriest member of the team is a Bernedoodle therapy dog. The Bernedoodle bread is a cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Poodle. They are very trainable and obedient. Their low to non-shedding coat makes poodles a great choice for those with allergies.

What is a therapy dog?

  • Therapy dogs visit healthcare settings, such as dental practices or nursing homes, to reduce anxiety and stress, along with comfort patients. Therapy dogs are not Service Dogs who are specially trained to perform specific tasks to help a person with a disability.
  • According to a National Institute for Health study by the ADA Center for Professional Success, being in the presence of a companion animal is associated with improvements in mental, social and physiologic health.
