It’s All About Trust!
So, how can you develop a great dentist-patient relationship? First, you must find the right dentist for your specific wants and needs, one with whom you can build trust. The best and fastest way to build trust is through constant communication. That means asking questions of your dentist and being open and honest about what’s going on with you.
Your dentist is sure to have lots of questions for you when you visit. They may include whether you’re experiencing any specific oral health problems, if there are any changes in your medical history and so on.
You can keep the conversation going by asking your dentist questions such as:
- Can you give me a play-by-play during my exam?
- What treatment options are there with respect to my specific needs?
- Which one of these options would yield the best outcomes for me?
- What should be treated now and what can be treated later?
