What is Patient-Centered Dental Care?

cosmetic dentistry Reno

What is your perception of the patient-dentist relationship? Would you convey it as one-sided? In other words, the dentist examines the patient’s teeth, determines the course of treatment, and performs the procedure-while the patient is an unimportant participant.

It Starts With The Atmosphere

At The Reno Dentist, we don’t do things that way. You will realize the difference when you first walk in our doors. You will discover a pleasant, inviting 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 disembodied mouth full of teeth. When Dr. Sykes 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 Dr. Sykes examines a patient and finds a problem that needs dental treatment, there is rarely only one solution proposed. Dr. Sykes 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, Dr. Sykes can fully assess the many critical factors that influence your present and future oral health.
