Meet Max and Mandy!
In January of 2016, we welcomed to the office nine week old Max and Mandy. Named after the Maxillary and Mandibular jaw, these therapy dogs were trained for the purpose of providing comfort and kindness to our patients. In accordance with the ADA, these Maltese Shih Tzu companions have been statistically shown to reduce stress and anxiety in patients as well as improving mental and physiological health.
Not only are Max and Mandy hypoallergenic, but these loving lap dogs are part of our ongoing commitment to making your experience with our office the very best.
Alongside roaming the office, Max and Mandy enjoy sitting on the laps of patients and a good belly rub. While both dogs are of the same breed, they have very unique personalities. Max is very active and playful while Mandy is more calm and sweet. Together the siblings work to brighten your day as we brighten your smile. If Max and Mandy are in during your next visit, please feel free to pick them up and hold them at any time.
