Providing patients with excellent care at our dentist Richmond
When it comes to your and your family’s health, we feel you have the right to expect nothing but the very best care that any medical professional can provide; after all, this is what we are told we can expect and demand from our health care throughout life.
One area of health that we should all demand a standard that is not less than excellent is the area of dentistry, as we are all told about the importance of having high standards of oral health and hygiene every day. This is why many of us adopt a twice-daily oral cleaning routine using toothbrushes and toothpaste, as we all know this is our first line of defence against common dental health issues.
Of course, while we all may have the best intentions when it comes to doing the right things to take care of our oral health, there may still be times when we need a little extra something to keep our teeth and gums healthy. Brushing alone is no guarantee that you will not develop a common dental issue such as gum disease, plaque build-up, or tooth decay; this is why having regular contact with a dental professional is highly recommended.
At Sheen Dental, a dentist Richmond, we want to encourage every one of our patients to maintain regular contact with our practice so that they can have regular oral health checks and receive any treatment our professional staff may recommend.
Your oral health checks are important
You must undergo your oral health check-ups as recommended by our dentist Richmond; for most patients, this should be every six months. Your oral health check plays a crucial role in preventing your oral health and hygiene from deteriorating. During these appointments, dental issues can be spotted in their early stages, and treatment can be recommended to prevent any issues you have from becoming problematic.
During these appointments, your teeth, gums and mouth can be fully examined, and the findings can be noted in your case file and acted upon if required. The examination results may lead to the application of treatment or referral to another professional, such as a hygienist. All of the decisions about your treatment will be fully discussed with you before a treatment plan is drawn up to meet your individual needs.
Please feel you can use this time to start a conversation with the professionals involved in your dental care, as the best results of any treatment often come with the cooperation of the patient. You should feel you can ask any questions and raise any concerns you may have. You can also expect to have these fully addressed openly and honestly by any dental professional providing oral care and treatment for you.
Agree to engage
If you wish to have the best possible oral health and hygiene standards, then we feel that you should make an agreement with yourself that you will engage with our dentist Richmond; this will always prove to be the best way to take care of your teeth and gums.
May we extend to you a very warm welcome to our practice in Richmond. We take great pride in the quality of our dentistry and want to make your visits a pleasant experience.
