What is Patient-Centered Dental Care?

cosmetic dentistry Mechanicsville

What is your perception of the patient-dentist relationship? Would you call it one-sided, with the dentist choosing any treatment, while the patient is mostly a bystander?At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville MD, we don’t do things that way.

You will notice the difference when you first walk in our doors. You will discover a friendly atmosphere. We don’t push patients through as if they were on an assembly line.

We see you as a whole person, not just a set of teeth. When our dentist meets with you, you will be able to talk about more than just your oral health. You will discuss your lifestyle, your past dental experiences, your goals, and your concerns. We want to create a long-term relationship with you—it benefits you and helps us do our jobs well.

We Listen

When we examine a patient and find a problem that needs treatment, there is rarely only one solution proposed. The dentist will take as much time as necessary to explain the options and answer your questions.

By listening carefully, communicating clearly, and asking the right questions, we can fully assess the many important factors that impact your present and future oral health.

At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville MD, your dental health always comes first. We offer general and family dentistry, as well as a wide range of cosmetic dentistry procedures to brighten your smile. Schedule an appointment with us today.
