She is one of the few dentists in the area, that has the latest technol- ogy to measure a patient’s airway and determine if an oral appliance is the best treatment for them. As Painless as Possible Dr. Romack has created an atmo- sphere that ensures that her patients are happy when they at her office and after they’ve left so “We’ve combined the latest tech- nologies and proven techniques with a gentle, caring touch to create a truly unique kind of dental experi- ence,” she said. “We offer a variety of soothing comforts including a Keurig coffee maker, blankets, special neck pillows, and warm towels at the end of each procedure.
