What is Patient-Centered Dental Care?

cosmetic dentistry Murray

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, decides on the course of treatment, and performs the procedure while the patient is an insignificant participant.

It Starts With The Atmosphere

At Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS, we don’t do things that way. You will recognize 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 a disembodied mouth full of teeth. When Dr. Blackwood meets with you, you will be able to talk about more than just your oral health. You will discuss your lifestyle, your past dental experiences, your goals, and your concerns. We want to create a long-term relationship with you—it benefits you and helps us do our jobs well.

We Listen

When Dr. Blackwood examines a patient and finds a problem that needs treatment, there is rarely only one solution proposed. Dr. Blackwood will take as much time as necessary to explain the options and answer your questions.

By listening carefully, communicating clearly, and asking the right questions, Dr. Blackwood can fully assess the many vital factors that impact your present and future oral health.
