A good dentist wants to help patients, but the best dentists hone their listening skills just as much as they hone their physical technique. A great doctor takes the time to listen to patients' concerns, and never rushes to levy a treatment with which someone may secretly feel uncomfortable.
Educates the Patient
Because you didn't go to dental school, you naturally rely on your dentist to educate you on oral health, medical issues, good habits, and treatment options you aren't aware of. The dentist who is perfect for you is happy to take the time to explain your options and work with you to enhance your confidence – and your smile.
Respects Patient Time and Resources
Constantly left in the waiting room or paying for pricey treatments you can't afford? These are both red flags your dental practice doesn't respect the time or budget of their clientele. Good dentists are as punctual as you are, and take your bottom line into consideration when suggesting treatment.
Gets to Know You
Feeling like just another file on the shelf doesn't just give you an impersonal experience; it can actually affect the level and quality of care you receive. When your dentist takes the time to get to know you, he or she can provide better care options that work according to your medical history.
Wants a Long-Term Relationship
The best dentist is invested in making you a long-term patient, which means following up when it's time for an appointment, scheduling regular screenings or X-rays and making you and your family feel recognized when you're in the office. If your dentist treats your appointment like a one-time job, it might be time to look for someone else.
Values You as a Patient
You don't want to feel like just another item on your dentist's to-do list. The best dentists have a way of letting their patients know they care about them personally. They're interested in their patients' lives, concerns, and families, and are eager to become a part of their general care team.
