My Practice Philosophy
Selecting the right doctor for ALL ON 4 treatment protocol can be a quite overwhelming and time consuming process for most of the patients. My practice philosophy has always been a “patient centered approach” where after the initial consultation, my patients develop trust about the quality of care they will receive in my practice. I highly value this trust and work very hard to ensure that after their treatments are completed, they are very happy and they feel that they made the right choice to come to my practice for their treatment. It is very rewarding for me too to realize that I could help them and be part of an important decision in their lives.
Through years of university education and continuing educations, I was able perform the right treatments for my patients. Probably, developing the right treatment plan could be the most challenging aspect in patient care and it could be the making or breaking part in any treatment protocol. For a successful treatment outcome, patient who is the most important person in my practice needs to be listened and understood completely in terms of their “wants and needs”. This allows for a desired functional and esthetic outcome and guarantees patient satisfaction in the end. This kind of “patient centered practice philosophy” helps me to put patient and their dental health as the priority and produce exceptional results every time.
I see every patient from the initial consultation, treatment planning, all post operative visits through final teeth delivery. My patients become like my family and I enjoys the long term follow ups with them. My patients enjoy my warm and caring bedside manners, easy going personality and jovial nature. I strive to provide them with the best treatment to my ability.
