Quality is Something to Care About

Sometimes it can be hard to tell the quality of something until it’s too late. When it comes to your health, making a mistake can cause years of problems and a huge financial burden. So, how do you know if the dentist you are considering offers truly quality care?
One size fits all approach
If it seems like patients ride a conveyor belt through the office this should bring up a red flag. Developing a relationship with your dental professional is important in ensuring that you’re receiving quality, individualized care. Something simple said in conversation could cue them in on an issue you didn’t realize you had. Treatment plans should be based on all aspects of the patient’s health, concerns and philosophies and without this relationship, a lot could be missed.
Education and Training
Learning something new every day is vital to our personal growth. The medical world is constantly evolving and new technology and techniques are developed every day. A dentist training shouldn’t end with their degree. Dentists who focus on quality care regularly attend training courses and conventions to stay up to date on the most recent trends and to further develop their skills.
Staying in the loop with the latest technology allows a dentist to offer alternative and often more effective treatments. For instance, Dr. Abelar can treat gum disease with laser treatments that eliminate the need for incisions and sutures and actually helps grow new tissues. Dentists who don’t stay current in these areas can’t provide the best care possible for their patients.
It’s just as important for a dentist to be informed about new materials as it is for them to adapt to new technologies. Without this knowledge, many dentists still recommend silver fillings that contain mercury and could be detrimental to your health.
At Dr. Abelar’s office, quality comes first in every aspect of patient care. To schedule an appointment or consultation call the office at 858-866-9692.
