We all have important reasons for caring for our teeth. Displaying confidence at work, sharing a laugh with friends, enjoying a delicious meal, or the simple act of speaking are enhanced by a healthy mouth. As there are many reasons for taking care of our teeth, there are also many barriers to getting the care we want. Fear, time, cost, confusion around making your best choice, and lack of trust are some of the most common causes that we hear. At Braeside Dental Centre, we are committed to helping you remove the barriers between you and the healthy smile you desire.
We can help you come up with a plan to have the treatment you want done and only the treatment you want done. We try to use easy to understand language and to let you know what to expect if you choose to do treatment or, alternatively, to do nothing. That way, you can be confident that you are making the right choice for you. We respect that you need to know how much treatment is going to cost. We understand that these goals may change over time and “not now” doesn’t always mean not ever. We will work with you to keep your options open, rather than limiting them wherever possible. Our team wants you to know how your dental insurance can help you. We also know that the insurance purchased for you by your employer, may not always match your unique needs. We can help you with that.
We have found that one of the best ways to alleviate fear is by building trust. Trust is about care and commitment over time; Building relationships take time. By listening to you and understanding the experiences behind fear, we learn how best to support you -this may be bringing a friend in the room, watching T.V., listening to music, or using one of our many sedation options. Tell us what you need in order to feel safe and secure, as all experiences are valid and held with respect.
