The Swish Dental experience reimagines routine dental care by combining quality care with unparalleled patient comfort and experience, creating an immersive experience coined as a “dental retreat.” Swish Dental Founder Dr. Viraj Desai entered the dental care world with two goals in mind: to provide a superior level of dental care to patients and to empower women in the field of dental health. Dr. Desai strove to open an office that cut through the corporate reins of of dental industry and develop an approach that prioritizes the comfort of the patient.
“Swish was created to provide an elevated comfort centric dental experience unlike no other,” said Swish Dental Founder Dr. Viraj Desai. “We focus on the patient experience and comfort while in our offices. If there is something that is already not on our comfort menu, we ask that you let us know, and we’ll get it added! Swish also has a strong platform for women in dentistry – we are woman-founded and owned and believe in bridging the gap with more female dentist owners.”

Swish Dental patients are treated to unique amenities to maximize their comfort, so that a routine six-month cleaning is more like a dental day spa. On their “comfort menu,” they offer luxuries such as plush blankets and warming eye masks to keep patients relaxed in what is usually expected to be a cold, uncomfortable environment. Patients can even borrow a complementary pair of Beats by Dre headphones and watch Netflix while getting a quality teeth cleaning. Bathrooms in the office are also stocked with pre-pasted toothbrushes and an assortment of complementary mouthwashes for last minute touch ups before or after a cleaning.
Swish Dental also utilizes state-of-the-art technology that enhances the patient experience. Low radiation, 360 degree x-rays ensure superior treatment and comprehensive imagery at quicker speeds, without the discomfort of multiple x-rays. The dentistry offers digital itero scanning to visualize a patient’s whole mouth and track changes year over year. They also use this technology to straighten teeth with Invisalign, a service not provided by many dentists in town. With this technology, Swish Dental team members also prioritize the human element, going over every image with the patient. This humanizing moment with the doctor means that patients walk out of their exam with a broad understanding of their current dental work up and any actions necessary for superior health.
“At Swish, we believe in the newest technology and the most comfort for our patients,” said Dr. Desai. “We use low radiation x-rays that are fast and comfortable for our patients. We also use itero digital scanning on every patient to track changes in their smile year over year. With digital scanning, we are able to eliminate all of the goop and mess that comes with going to the dentist. Everyday, we are changing the way dentistry is done and improving upon our patient experience.”
Swish Dental also takes time to give back to the community. The team is set to launch the “Smiles of Swish” campaign later this year providing dental services for those in need. Swish Dental is also starting a campaign, entitled “If you don’t have a smile, I’ll give you one of mine.” In this campaign, for every person that takes a picture at the green wall in a Swish Dental office, Swish will donate $1 to a charity. This can go towards pro bono dental work or not. Dr. Lawson and Dr. Brooks also spend numerous hours outside of work offering free dental services to the community.
The Swish Dental difference can even be seen from the lobby, as offices are made to feel more like an art gallery than a traditional dental office. Swish Dental commissions and showcases local art in each lobby to making bold statements in bright vibrant colors. Art pieces are even rotated regularly so patients will get to experience new local art with every teeth cleaning.
“Swish is local Austin born and created with love,” said Desai. “We thoroughly enjoy every community we take part in and are excited for our two upcoming projects in the Mueller area. Mueller was really a family oriented community that we had wanted to be a part of since the creation of Swish and are really looking forward to our first Swish family office!”
