I am a dentist, but like everyone else, my teeth need regular care to preserve them and to make them as attractive as possible. So, just like everyone else, I go the dentist to receive many of the procedures I deliver to my own patients.
When I sat down to write goals for my practice, it occurred to me that the kind of dentistry I want to give to my patients was exactly the kind of dentistry I wanted to receive. And I can assure you, that I would hold my dentist to some pretty high standards.
I would want my dentist to see me as an individual, to know me personally and not merely treat me as a chart number or just the next patient. I would want my dentist to foster this relationship by knowing what is important to me and respecting me as a person. And, I wouldn’t want to be taken for granted, even years into our relationship.
Although, I am probably as brave as the next person, I’d prefer, naturally, not to experience discomfort during my dental visit. I would want my dentist to have genuine concern for my comfort before, during, and after my treatment. I would want my dentist to have a thoroughly mattered pain free dental techniques and the ability to provide sedation when I ask.
Maybe I am spoiled, but I get annoyed if I have to do too much waiting. I d much prefer if my dentist and staff were ready for when I arrived and would really like it if I were the only patient, so the doctor and staff could give me their full attention.
I’m a stickler for quality, and these teeth are the only ones I’ll ever have. I would choose a dentist who could provide me with the highest level of care, which is what I feel I deserve. I would appreciate someone who is painstakingly accurate in all the details of my treatment. So, what I want as a dental patient is what I hope you want, because the result of this kind of treatment is my true goal: optimal dental health and appearance. If you would like this kind of care, I would be happy to be your dentist.
