Yes, I am a dentist. But just like everyone else, my teeth and gums need regular care to preserve them and to make them as healthy and attractive as possible. So, just like everyone else, I go to the dentist to receive many of the procedures I deliver to my own patients. In fact, Dr Robnett is my dentist.
When I sat down to write the mission statement for Brickyard Dental Group, it occurred to me that the kind of dentistry I want to provide for my patients was exactly the kind of dentistry I wanted to receive. Nothing less. And I can assure you that I would hold my dentist to some pretty high standards.
If I was looking for a dentist, I would want someone who sees me as an individual – to understand that I am unique and different from other patients. I want a dentist to get to know me personally and not merely treat me as a chart number or “the next patient.”
I would want my dentist to foster this trusted relationship by knowing what is important to me and respecting me as a person and an individual. And I wouldn’t want to be taken for granted, even years into the relationship.
Although I am probably as tough as the next person, I would naturally prefer not to experience discomfort during my dental visits. I would want my dentist to have genuine concern for my comfort before, during, and after my treatment. I would want my dentist to have thoroughly mastered pain-minimizing dental techniques, and if needed offer additional ways of ensuring I stay relaxed and comfortable.
I am probably spoiled, but I get annoyed and frustrated if I have to do too much waiting. I would much prefer it if my dentist and staff were ready for me when I arrived, and would really like it if they could give me their full attention while I am under their care.
I’m particular about quality. I am even willing to pay a little more if I am receiving top-of-the-line quality treatment. My teeth are the only ones I will ever have. I wouldn’t choose my dentist because their fees were the lowest. I would choose a dentist who could provide me with the highest level of care, which is what me and my family are worthy of. I would appreciate a team who are painstakingly thorough and accurate in all the details of my dental care. So what I want as a dental patient is what I hope you want, because the result of this kind of treatment is my true goal: optimal oral health and appearance. If you want this kind of care, we would be honored and humbled to be your dental office.
