Glasgow Dentist West End,
Why it is important to find the right Glasgow dentist
By Hannah Kemp 06th Jun 2022
At Buttercup 7 Day Dental, we care just as much about providing excellent dental care as we do about ensuring patients receive a positive dental experience when visiting our Glasgow dentist West End. This is because the patient experience is fundamental to the behaviour and attitude a patient has towards their oral health going forward.
It is not uncommon for patients who have had less-than pleasing experiences to harbour a negative attitude towards visiting a dental practice the next time they require professional dental attention. After all, unpleasant experiences in the dental chair are a top cause for the prevalence of dental phobias among patients.
We believe that choosing the right Glasgow dentist West End who offers a top-quality experience will more than likely see the patient returning again and again for dental treatments and services. While maintaining good dental health is vital for overall health and good quality of life, a proactive stance towards dental health can only be helped when a patient enjoys coming to our Glasgow dentist West End.
In this post, we outline some of the rewards patients enjoy when they align with the right dentist suitable for their needs.
Why having the right dentist matters
The right dentist can make a patient feel comfortable. Comfort in the dental chair is as much as it is about minimising pain and discomfort as it is about being treated as a valued patient. A patient who feels valued is more likely to be open and truthful about their medical conditions, their behaviour at home regarding their dental health and their real needs and fears regarding treatment.
There is a greater likelihood of the patient building a long-term relationship with a dentist that takes care to be honest and caring towards those they serve. Regular dental care guarantees that a patient stands a greater chance of enjoying healthy strong natural teeth and gums for life. With a reduced risk of dental pain and dental disease, patients can continue to experience a good quality of life.
What distinguishes a great dentist?
Professional knowledge and real-world experience count for much in one’s chosen dentist. A wealth of dental knowledge is required in order to identify early warning signs and diagnose problems accurately.
Excellent communication skills are another highly sought-after quality in a dental practitioner. Part of a good dental experience is being educated about the dental problem, the various treatment solutions available; their risks and benefits, and how to avoid problems in the future. In order to provide a patient with useful information they can understand, the dentist’s communication skills are all-important.
It is a sad state of affairs that not every dental practitioner displays the quality of trustworthiness; yet trustworthiness is imperative in the dental setting. Firstly, due to the nature of dental treatments which require a dentist to work in close proximity to the patient and in sensitive areas like the mouth, the patient looks to trusting the dentist to take all steps necessary to minimise discomfort. Secondly, a patient needs to trust the dentist’s recommendations about treatment options suitable to rehabilitate mouth health.
