What is Patient-Centered Dental Care?

If you’ve ever had a negative experience at the dentist’s office then you may already understand how important it is for care providers to make their offices more patient-friendly. If a dentist is only concerned with providing what he or she thinks is best, without considering the perspective and wishes of the patient—that’s not going to work for everyone. Negative experiences or feelings of belittlement can discourage a patient from seeking help. We do our best to make sure every patient has a positive experience. A patient-centered practice understands that every patient and family has differing dynamics and circumstances, and the best solution for one patient may be inappropriate for another.

We take the time to get to know our patients and develop a trusting relationship with each person we treat. This helps us better understand your oral health needs, and gives us a greater range of tools to aid your continued good health. When we understand your preferences, we can provide you with the most appropriate care and ensure you keep coming back to see us.

At Inspire Smiles, we like to think of ourselves as partners in your health. We trust our patients to come to us for preventive and restorative dental needs and you trust us to be honest and upfront about services and treatments. We are grateful for every patient who chooses our practice over another, and will try our best to make sure you have a positive experience with us.
