RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Some fans in Raleigh enjoyed watching the action Thursday from an unusual point of view.

Crabtree Valley Dental had screens positioned directly above their patients’ chairs so they could watch the games.

Crabtree Valley Dental launched the idea this year and encouraged people to schedule their appointments during the tournament.

One patient said it made his experience a lot less stressful.

“I like it because you don’t sit there concentrating on ‘is this going to hurt?’” he said. “You get busy watching that and pretty soon they’re like, ‘Oh, we’re done. Thank you.’”

The office also gave away gift baskets as raffle prizes.

Crabtree Valley Dental plans to do it again next year.
