dntl bar: The Cool New Trend for Dental Services Taking Off in NoMad
It’s no secret that the majority of people dread going to the dentist and cringe when they think about fitting an appointment into their schedule.

For a comprehensive description of services being offered, check out the dntl bar website.
The founders of the city’s first dental bar are Dr. Ben El Chami (dentist) and Kwabena Akyirem (hygienist). They believe that people are at the heart of everything — not tech, not process, and not product. They have learned that if they aspire to be a people-first company, everything else gets a bit easier. Dr. Chami told ONE37pm, “At dntl, better matters. Through simplicity, we will deliver an elevated experience that starts and ends with the consumer. We are caring for your oral health care needs in a simple, modern, clean and convenient way.”
Customer care doesn’t start and end with the dentistry either. If you are picturing your typical dentist’s office, think again. Upon walking into the space, patients are greeted with a pleasant smell of custom-scented air to calm the nerves. For optimal comfort, the beautiful, relaxing rooms are equipped with massage exam chairs, flat-screen televisions, and a blanket to drape over you while your teeth get pampered – everything to reduce your stress and make you comfortable.
At the end of a cleaning, patients are given a hot towel and tea tree oil to soothe the gums. The care doesn’t stop there either. As patients leave they are given bamboo toothbrushes with BPA-free bristles, 100% biodegradable and plastic-free floss, all environmentally friendly.
The practice accepts all PPO plans. They have made it easy to check their website to see if your insurance is covered. If not, the services provided are extremely reasonable and affordable; e.g. cleanings range anywhere from $175-$275.
Since dntl bar’s opening in January 2019, walk-in dentistry seems to have become a popular trend in the city. With fancy designs and amenities appealing to millennials, these startups are creating a new generation of dentist offices and changing the dental experience. Other popular dental bars are Dental House, Tend, and Grand Street Dental. Find out what all the hype is about and treat your teeth to a wonderful experience!
