How to talk to your dentist
- Posted on: Aug 21 2011
Most of us have been trained to show up at the dentist office, sit through the teeth cleaning and checkup, and wait to be told what’s wrong. We are used to being educated and told what to do. Maybe you’ve never had a real conversation with your dentist about what you want. You may even feel like you don’t have a say in your own treatment.
If you’re ready to be involved in your own dental care, try talking to your dentist. Dr. Nemec and his staff make it a point to ask questions – lots of questions. What do you like about your smile? What would you like to change? What goals do you have for your smile, down the road? How do you see us helping you?
What you’ll find is that when you talk about what’s important to you, and what isn’t, you’ll get better dental care. You’ll get the care you want!
