Maybe you've seen their billboards on I-15 in Utah County, probably the only place for 100 miles where there are other equally strange billboards on either side. I don't typically pull over on freeways to take photos, so I'll describe them.
Billboard #1 depicts a gaping toothy mouth, into which a dentist's mirror is beginning to enter. Instead of the typical reflection of molar #2's backside, we see palm trees on a white sand beach with a cloudless sky over emerald-clear water. The headline reads: "Sedation...It's a Dream!"
Billboard #2, while not explicitly promoting nitrous oxide as a recreational drug, has subtler connotations. A Utah license plate reads "SED8ME". Maybe I'm alone here, but the first drug that makes me think of is Flunitrazepam. (That's a "roofie" for those of you without Wikipedia.)
Their website might further appeal to your hedonistic tendencies. Just look at this list of perks which, grammatical errors aside, sounds more like my sixth birthday party than an unpleasant medical exam:
The dental office can be scary, but at Stonehaven we know you will have a great visit, just look at all the cool stuff you get:
- Fresh baked cookies
- Personal Advocate
- Guided Tour
- Free Exam and X-rays
- Laughing Gas
- Free Gift
- Toothbrush bag (with cleaning)
