Are you on an Out-of-State Dentist Search?
If you travel and are on a dentist search for dental needs out of state, or if you are moving cross country, one of best people to ask for advice and a referral is your own dentist, Dr. Jamie Alexander. Dr. Alexander is part of The Pankey Institute learning community of more than 25,000 dentists in all 50 states and 43 countries. He has been part of this learning community for 20 years.
A referral from Dr. Alexander will mean that you can reach out to one of his Pankey colleagues nearly wherever you go. Not only will this colleague be similar in approach to Dr. Alexander and practice according to many of the same principles as Dr. Alexander. This colleague and Dr. Alexander will go out of their way to communicate and share your dental records so your care is optimal. Dr. Alexander will even make the initial phone call for you and make a personal introduction.
What is so special about dentists who are part of the Pankey learning community?
The Pankey Institute, in Key Biscayne, FL, attracts dentists like Dr. Alexander, who aspire to provide individualized, comprehensive dentistry and endeavor to develop their effectiveness in leading patients to optimal oral health, as well as to develop advanced clinical expertise. They focus on patient-centered care, which includes carefully listening to the concerns and goals of patients, fully informing patients, diagnosing and planning treatment for patients according to the “golden rule” of what is in the patient’s best interest, explaining comprehensive care options, taking the time to answer all questions, and with genuine understanding, allow patients to take the time they need to responsibly make their own choices. Dentists who have pursued a postdoctoral education at The Pankey Institute also have developed expertise in the occlusal considerations of treatment so that the dentistry they achieve is functionally comfortable and long lasting.
You may not think this intentional type of care is a rarity today, but it is. That’s why other Pankey dentists have referred their patients to Dr. Alexander and closely communicated with him as he assumes care for their patients who have arrived in the Boynton Beach area.
Concluding your Dentist Search
If you have been fortunate to have been under the care of Dr. Alexander and want the services of a like-minded dentist–whether the help you desire is for an emergency while traveling, continuing care while seasonally living elsewhere, or a move to a new community, ask Dr. Alexander if one of his Pankey colleagues is close by. And, if you know someone visiting from out of town, who needs a dentist, or someone who is new to our community, Dr. Alexander and his team will be delighted to give them the same exceptional care they give you.
