Stark dental rooms tend to be uninviting and intimidating, even for a standard checkup. A Sky Factory Luminous SkyCeiling can address these problems by transforming the interior environment into a space that is welcoming and relaxing for both patients and staff, according to a company press release.

The process of making people more comfortable in healthcare settings is challenging. Pictures of nature have been considered a solution and have been shown to have some benefit. To effectively bring nature inside, what is needed is a way to provide what the eye and mind expect to see when exposed to nature. The Sky Factory uses illusion to accomplish this. The goal is to build a perfect sky image ceiling -- an illusion that triggers the same psychological and physiological relaxation response that occurs when one lies looking up into a beautiful sky.

"Dental offices are sometimes high-pressure. People get anxious, and it can be transmitted to the staff," noted Cheryl Kantor-Goldenberg, D.D.S., a Sky Factory customer. "But I have been so calm since installing SkyCeilings in our office. Whatever happens, it's OK; we'll get through it. I've got daylight coming down on me. Now we refer to the old office as 'the dungeon,' and not affectionately either."
