This is a question that I am frequently asked in one form or another by my patients, since it is my habit to listen to music while treating patients. I find that the music relaxes both the patient, my assistant and myself. It also seems to make the appointments go by more quickly. I use different sources, but usually I am not listening to a traditional radio station. Instead I listen to Pandora or a custom playlist from my iPhone. I try and find music that both I and the patient will enjoy and usually my patients seem to accept my choice of music. If a patient brings their ipod or iphone, we can plug that into our radio and enjoy their play list.
