Why You Should Choose Our Practice
Well, there are a lot of good practices around but, ultimately, I think that the individual approach that I give, and my team gives to patients is important. We treat everyone like an individual. We listen to them. It isn’t a one-size fits all type of approach.
We hear often from patients, they come in, they say, “I haven’t been in in a few years,” and they look down at the floor and they expect me to judge them or something because, apparently, that’s happened to them in the past. Ultimately, my response to that is, “I’m just glad you’re here. What can I do to help you? What are your concerns?” And so, ultimately, I think that’s a big thing we do here at the practice. It’s, unfortunately, not done as much as it should be. We should listen to our patients, we find out why they’re here, and we want to address their concerns, their chief complaint. We want to take care of that. It’s common for us to see patients that haven’t been to the dentist for twenty years. I had a patient just this week, it had been thirty years since they had been to the dentist because they’re scared. And that fear is real, and whatever I can do, whatever my team can do, to make them feel more comfortable, so they can get the care they need, that’s amazing, that’s awesome. And we do that on a daily basis.
It’s amazing when people know they’ve been heard, and they know that we’re on the same team. I’m not pushing an agenda. I’m here to take care of whatever it is they are here for, be it complicated, which we can do, or very simple, which we do all the time as well. It’s the nature of it. It’s just in essence trying to find our patients and really build that relationship with them where they trust us. And it’s awesome when we see that, and it happens all the time. So, ultimately, again, this is a very comfortable place for patients. We do incredible dentistry for them. We take care of their needs every day.
It’s a unique place, as I’ve discovered in talking to colleagues, and talking to patients, again, putting patients’ needs first and addressing whatever their concerns are in a way that they feel respected and heard.
