Dental practice used to be about command and control.
People would present with problems. Problems were fixed and patients returned in six months with more problems.
“The greatest advance in dentistry that I have witnessed without doubt, is the development of the relationship between the dentist and the patient.”
My father would see up to thirty patients in a day and there was little opportunity for any relationship to develop, or education to occur.
“We empower our patients by removing the mystery around dental practice, since what they do on a daily basis in care and maintenance is core to their ongoing dental health.”
The practice of dentistry involves both preventative treatment and care advice, as well as the treatment of tooth decay, periodontal diseases and the aesthetics of the face and mouth. I practice dentistry in providing the very best in holistic dental care to all my patients
