A visit to the dentist in the 21st century bears no resemblance to the traditional and tired stereotype of white-coated practitioners who inflict pain on frightened patients in sterile-looking rooms filled with dangerous-looking equipment.
The modern dental practice is patient-focused. That means it offers a welcoming, relaxing environment that puts its patients – at ease. It means the dental team is professional and is trained to the highest standards. It means that practitioners – dentists, hygienists, nurses etc – listen to the needs and desires of their patients and offer a range of solutions to meet them. It means that patients have positive perceptions of oral hygiene and can maintain exceptional and attractive smiles.
The contemporary dental practice – your dental practice – is where you go to seek advice and receive treatment to maintain the oral health and attractive smiles.
