Concierge dentistry is about providing you the dental care you need in a manner that is expedient and convenient. That means that those who specialize in concierge dentistry must have a deep understanding of both general dentistry and cosmetic practices.
More Attentive Care
When it comes to your time, concierge dental groups understand how important it is. Since these services take on fewer clients, they are able to give you a greater level of care, meaning that they can accomplish more in one appointment than many dental offices can in three.
High powered jobs are highly visible jobs. That means that you are constantly needing to look your best. Stains on your teeth or a gap can do a great deal to undermine your sense of confidence.
From seeing the spooky forceps and needles to even smelling dental compounds, 5-8% of patients refuse to seek dental care all together and 20% of patients will only go to the dentist when necessary.
I think I have odontophobia. What can I do to prevent panic during visits?
Easier said than done - practice positive self-talk! Tell yourself “YOU CAN DO IT!”
Make sure to remind yourself “everything WILL be okay.” Your dentist is a professional and is someone you can trust.
Don’t be nervous - speak up to your dentist. Let him/her know when you’re having a rough time. Listening to your concerns face-to-face helps both sides - you and your dentist. Your dentist can help make an ideal and reasonable commitment that makes you feel comfortable because dental health is SO important! Knowledge is power!
Download your favorite podcast, album, or playlist before heading to the office. Distract your thoughts and link the experience to something you ENJOY.
Don’t forget headphones! Your dentist will not be upset if you put your headphones in to distract your thoughts.
