What is Patient-Centered Dental Care?

cosmetic dentistry Alexandria

This blog post from the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria poses a question: what is your perception of the patient-dentist relationship? Would you describe 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 a minor participant.

It Starts With The Atmosphere

At Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry, 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 an disembodied mouth full of teeth. When we meet 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 we examine a patient and finds a problem that needs treatment, there is rarely only one solution proposed. We will 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 critical factors that affect your present and future oral health.

Does This Sound Good to You?

Does patient-focused dental care make sense to you? If so, we invite you to become one of our valued patients at the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria. Our services include family dentistry, and clear braces from Invisalign. Schedule an appointment with us today.
