Dr. Jamie J. Alexander and his care team strive to make every patient feel so comfortable that they feel positive about dental visits. Patients may even look forward to visits. Feeling comfortable, means you feel “at home.” You feel welcome. People are genuinely interested in you for who you are, and they attempt to understand your thoughts and feelings. They care about what you need.
“Feeling you have a dental home can make all the difference when it comes to maintaining regular appointments, trusting recommendations for treatment, and accepting the treatment you need,” says Dr. Jamie J. Alexander, Boynton Beach’s comprehensive general and restorative dentist. “Our mission is to look out for your best interest, providing the best dentistry in a friendly and comfortable environment. We also know that developing trust and a sense of comfort can take more than one interaction, so here are a few tips to ease into knowing which dentist is right for you.”
When selecting a dentist, it’s quite common for people to research multiple dentists and make inquiries over the phone before proceeding to make an appointment. You will develop confidence to make your decision as you check off the following:
• Online patient reviews indicate the dentist, hygienist, dental assistants and administrative team are friendly, kind, listen well, provide exceptional service, and spend time with patients to fully inform them and answer questions.
• When you visit the dental practice’s website and social media, you like the tone and content of what you read. There, you find evidence of advanced postdoctoral education in clinical methods and evidence the care team is focused on the patient’s health and wellbeing.
• When you call the office to talk about whether you will feel at home and you bring up concerns you have about your dental history, the receptionist is understanding and helpful. If you want to schedule a brief meet and greet appointment, the receptionist says, “Yes, we can do that.”
• At the “meet and greet,” additional questions are answered, and you feel you want to schedule a new patient exam.
Feeling “at home” is increased by sharing your concerns and preferences with the care team.
