What is Patient-Centered Dental Care?

cosmetic dentistry White Plains

A question from the team at The Dental Design Center in White Plains: What is your perception of the patient-dentist relationship?

Would you characterize it as one-sided? In other words, the dentist examines the patient’s teeth, chooses the course of treatment, and performs the procedure-while the patient is just a participant?

It Starts With The Atmosphere

We don’t do things that way. You will learn the difference when you first walk in our doors. You will discover a friendly atmosphere. We don’t push patients through as if they were on an assembly line.

We see you as a whole person, not just an disembodied mouth full of teeth. We want to create a long-term relationship with you—it benefits you and helps us do our jobs well.

We Listen

When we examine a patient and finds a problem that needs treatment, there is rarely only one solution proposed. We take as much time as necessary explain the options and answer your questions.

By listening carefully, communicating clearly, and asking the right questions, we can fully assess the many important factors that influence your present and future oral health.

If this sounds good to you, give us a call at The Dental Design Center in White Plains. We offer complete general dentistry services. Patients from Scarsdale, Westchester County, and New Castle also come to us for dental implants, and much more. Schedule your next cleaning and checkup today!
