From the Dentist (Sponsored)?
What’s most important to you when it comes to treating patients? Developing a level of trust by investing the time with each patient to ensure that he or she feels understood, valued and important.
How would you describe your chair-side style? Focused and caring. When I consult with patients, I consider it their time to explain, take in, and process information. It is also my time to gain a thorough understanding of their concerns, needs, and desires. This helps us set a mutually agreed upon expectations before, during and after treatment.
How do you educate patients? I explain their treatment options without excessive medical or dental jargon and I always get their feedback to help assure their understanding. I’ve found that most people enjoy the process of learning through active dialogue.
