What is Patient-Centered Dental Care?

Categories: General Dentistry

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

It Starts With The Atmosphere

At Marcos Ortega DDS, we don’t do things that way. You will learn the difference when you first walk in our doors. You will discover a warm, pleasing atmosphere. We don’t push patients through as if they were on an assembly line.

We see you as a whole person, not just an disembodied mouth full of teeth. When Dr. Ortega 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. Ortega examines a patient and finds a problem that needs treatment, there is rarely only one solution proposed. Dr. Ortega will take as much time as necessary explain the options and answer your questions.

By listening carefully, communicating clearly, and asking the right questions, Dr. Ortega can fully assess the many critical factors that influence your present and future oral health.
