From the Dentist (Sponsored)?
What’s most important to you when it comes to treating patients? The patient’s comfort and care, I focus on providing comprehensive, patient-centric treatment that restores the patient to the best esthetic form and function.
How would you describe your chair-side style? Gentle, compassionate, and supportive. Most patients have an overall fear of surgical treatment, so I listen to them with goal of understanding their needs, fears, and concerns. After interpreting their expectations, I explain treatment options in a manner that comforts and reassures them.
How do you educate patients? I share information in a way that works best for the patient. I review radiographs, provide study models for visual learners, and more detailed explanations for audio learners. I focus on using dialogue rather than monologue to assure patient understanding every step of the way.
