Katharine Jones DDS of Fabulous Smiles Dental Center, formally Ralston Dental Care, has reshaped her practice and specializes as a solo Concierge Dentist. "After more than 20 years of practicing general and cosmetic dentistry I have seen an increase in corporate dental care and high volume dental clinics with multiple dentists creating a lower standard of personalized and time-sensitive services. I have devoted my practice to patients looking for a more enjoyable dental experience.” Dr. Jones takes time to understand her patient’s needs, treat their concerns, and gives each patient a detailed personal treatment plan.
Dentistry is changing. There is a rapid influx of both insurance and corporate dentistry in the dental profession that is changing the professional model we all knew in years past. Today, with insurance and corporate dentistry the bottom line is more important than patient care. How many patients can we see in a day? How fast can procedures be done? How can we use less costly supplies and equipment? The real question is what do you need from your dental professional?
"As a concierge dentist, I am completely committed and devoted to my patients, focused on what is in their best interest and deliver a high level quality of care, without the distractions of high patient volume. I can perform Quadrant Dentistry or treat regions of the mouth in a single visit with convenient appointment scheduling. I create award winning smiles for those in high visibility positions using digital imaging and quality dental materials".
In an industry growing each year, the increase of dental clinics and multiple dentists in each office is creating a lower standard of personalized and time-sensitive services. At Fabulous Smiles Dental Center, Dr. Jones maintains a one-on-one relationship and treatment history, with ongoing communication that is so critical to successful dental care.
