No two people are the same and everyone knows that through out life we go through many stages. Yet, we are the masters of our own destiny. You have the power to choose many things in like. In regards to oral health, your first choice in this regard is how you would like to begin with dental care. There are five levels on which people may choose to be seen in our practice. Please consider the level of care you feel is most appropriate for you at this time. Then ask yourself if that is where you’d like to remain.
People in crisis or with an emergency problem such as pain, swelling or bleeding that need our immediate help are at this level. We see urgencies immediately, whenever possible.
People who choose this level of care desire treatment only when something breaks or becomes uncomfortable. Generally people at this level expect a limited type of examination, focusing on obvious problems. They usually want to correct immediate problems with as little effort and cost as possible.
Patients who choose this level of care want a thorough examination and take an active part in the treatment and prevention of present and future disease problems. However; they usually choose to repair solutions that are short range in nature.
People at this level are similar to people described in level 3. They choose to have a thorough examination. However; they decide on a MASTER PLAN to formulate a long-term treatment plan for health and repair. These patients are very concerned about treating the causes of dental disease, not simply the effects. These patients want all dental treatment provided to be completed in the most lasting fashion as possible.
People in this group are in level 4 as far as dental health is concerned, but also want to look their best at all times. They know that their smile is the first thing others notice about them and want to put their best foot forward.
I hope these levels make sense to you. It is not uncommon for people to begin at one level and progress to another over time. We are here to help you discover and decide at what level you are most comfortable. So please contact us with any questions. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and provide you with the best dentistry appropriate for you. I hope if you are unsatisfied with your current level, that you will make changes and know that we are here to support you.
