Communication challenges in dentistry

Convincing patients
of treatment

Sharing up-to-date knowledge about prevention and individual cases

As a dentist, it’s your responsibility to educate your patients  and provide all the facts.9 When dentists take the time to do so, it results in greater trust between the patient and doctor. Transparency produces trust and confidence.9 Pictures […] can also be helpful when patients go home and are questioned by their  family members about the need for care.9 Focusing on patient education can increase patient retention and case acceptance, two primary goals for dental offices and may be one of the most rewarding parts of being a healthcare provider.9

We show [the images] to the patient and he can check his own situation. This is very important for us, because you want him to be aware of what is happening in his mouth. If you see your problem big, you think it is big.
