    I'm a dentist and I'm thinking about putting one of my pinball machines (on free play) in my patient waiting room. Maybe like an EM because its simple and has the ding and dong and all that. My staff isn't too thrilled. What do you think, is it a dumb idea?

    I'll see if I can try to dampen the sounds with felt or something.

    Multicade is a good idea, but I really need to get some pins out of my house and I don't want to sell anything!

    The age demographic is a mix of young and old but I would say more older patients.

    The wait times are pretty short usually.

    Quoted from zacaj:

    I put an EM in my office and had to disconnect the chimes

    that's a good idea

    Quoted from TRAMD:

    I'm a physician and have considered putting a pin or an arcade game in my waiting room but one of my partners said no. He doesn't like any ideas he doesn't come up with.

    no partners here, thank god

    Quoted from Oneangrymo:

    Hmm. my wifes a dentist too, good idea. Which one are you going to get? Fun house ?

    I was thinking Grand Prix EM. It's pretty straight and narrow and shouldn't be offensive to anyone.

    Quoted from Oneangrymo:

    ARe you a general dentist ? Or peds ? Maybe some sort of hunting pinball machine since lots of dentists like to go hunting, like big buck hunter?

    general dentist. yeah, lots of dentists like hunting but its not for me. Never been hunting.

    As a fellow Fairview Park resident, are you accepting new patients?

    Quoted from TractorDoc:

    I thought about putting a pinball machine in the lobby at my veterinary office.
    I did not for several reasons. . . the mostly so as not to scare the dogs and cats waiting out there. Its not fun to try and examine a cat that is freaked out, let me tell you.
    The other significant reason is the lack of control some parents have over their children. Between the kids stomping on the animal scale, scattering fliers across the lobby, and running around while screaming (all without much concern from the parents) I thought a pin might not fare very well.
    I still brought one into work. . . I just put in in MY office though!

    This is great! I may do this!

    Quoted from PinballManiac40:

    Do it!!
    An Orthodontist here has a MB he bought from Slash, a multicade, and his rock n roll memorabilia, most of it in the waiting room. He plans to add a rock pin soon. I recently serviced the MB.

    Wow, that’s crazy!

    Ok, so I posted this same question on a Facebook dentist group and most responders are all for it, except the noise. I’ll see if I can dampen the chimes a bit.

    So i’m leaning to just having one in my personal office, not the waiting room. Surprisingly, I asked the same question on a dentist Facebook group and the overwhelming majority said YES.
