Meeting the Restorative Dentistry Needs of Dental Patients
We need to stop, listen, see exactly what they want. Do they want to be able to eat better? Do they want to make an appearance better? They want to be able to talk better. They want to be free of pain. We go from those points of view first. Then, what we need to do is reassure them that this doesn’t have to be a quick fix. If it’s a purpose of function, let’s get them functioning well. If it’s a purpose of appearance, let’s concentrate on that. Whatever we do it’s like a major blueprint. It’s like building a house. The foundation has to be secure first, so we start out with a good solid foundation. Different situations offer different foundations, but they’ve all got to be solid to build the top of the house on.
