Meet Rocco & Lucky, Our Therapy Dogs!

Rocco & Lucky are Rebecca Testa Pediatric Dentistry’s Official Therapy Dogs. If your child suffers from anxiety when visiting the dentist, Rocco and Lucky may be able to help! Both dogs love to be with kids and are two of the sweetest dogs you’ll ever meet. If your child has anxiety when going to the dentist, a therapy dog can help turn a scary visit into a comfortable experience.

Therapy animals have been shown to reduce nervousness, lower blood pressure, and increase endorphin levels – the natural substance produced by the body, which works by reducing feelings of pain or stress.

Of course, we only introduce Rocco and Lucky to our patients who are comfortable with dogs, and every care is taken to ensure a positive experience for everyone. Our therapy dogs are everyone’s favorite team members, they have very calm and friendly bedside manners, and they can’t wait to meet you (and have you scratch behind their ears…they love that!)
