PATIENT COMFORT AND TECHNOLOGY
We believe the successful doctor-patient relationship begins with mutual trust and respect from all parties involved. We have found that with this foundation, patient comfort and peace-of-mind follow close behind. This starts with a private consultation with Dr. Browder where you can express what you hope to achieve as a patient in our practice. Coming to a mutual understanding of what your expectations are of us will help us to cater your future visits with our office to suit your individual needs. From there we will proceed to the diagnostic portion of your experience which will involve a thorough examination combined with the appropriate gathering of information. In most cases, this will include the use of digital photography and radiography , which allows us to show you detailed images of your teeth and gums while keeping exposure to radiation at an absolute minimum.
Depending on the extent of your dental health needs, we may gather even more information which might include diagnostic models of your teeth. In many cases, we will be able to present you our recommendations at this appointment. There are times however when a more thoughtful process is required in order to present you with a detailed plan to achieve optimum oral health and function. At any rate, please rest assured that we will always work hard to provide you with the very best that dentistry has to offer.
For the highly apprehensive patient, we offer nitrous oxide sedation and oral sedation (medication) both of which serve to “take the edge off” of an otherwise stressful visit. With these measures, many patients comment that they barely remember the time spent in our office. Please let us know if you feel you may want to use one of these two options so that we may provide you with as much information as possible.
