Common Personality Traits Patients Want From Their Dentist

Today we are sharing an article which talks about some common personality traits that patients expect from their dentists.

"Dentistry is an unusual profession because while dentists are mostly focused on patient care, they also often own and run their own businesses. Many dentists have a diverse set of personality traits that allow them to work both closely with patients and be successful managers of their practices."

Here at Germantown Dental Care, Dr. Mansfield and his staff treat every patient like family and work hard to ensure that each patient feels at home every time they visit.  Dr. Mansfield also takes your comfort seriously. He knows that not everyone’s idea of a perfect day is sitting in the dentist chair and that many people fear the possibility of pain or discomfort related to dental procedures. Ask any of his patients and they will tell you how much of a difference it makes that Dr. Mansfield cares for and addresses these concerns. Contact Dr. Mansfield today at: http://germantowndentalcare.com/

So, what are some of these common personality traits that Dr. Mansfield and other good dentists possess?

  • Comfortable with close personal interaction  
  • Easy to talk to 
  • Trustworthy
  • Passionate about providing care to those in need
  • Caring and concerned about how the patient feels during procedures
  • Good communicator

Part 2: A Top 10 list for water flossing

Good morning,

As you know last week on our blog we talked a little bit about waterflossing and what it is. Today we are sharing an article from http://www.rdhmag.com/ entitled 'A Top 10 list for water flossing.' Here are some of the reasons to consider waterflossing if you have trouble with traditional flossing methods:

  • It reduces the periodontal infection.
  • It reduces the inflammation.
  • It helps people with diabetes.
  • It is safe and gentle around implants.
  • There is nothing better for cleaning around orthodontic appliances.

To Waterfoss or Not to Waterfloss? Part 1

Good morning,

Today we would like to talk about another alternative to traditional flossing: water flossing. Of course we always recommend that each of our patients still use traditional flossing daily for the health benefits. However, some patients have a very difficult time or special circumstances which make it harder for them to use the regular flossing methods. For those cases, another alternative is water flossing.  What is water flossing you may ask?

"For those that don’t know, a water flosser (also known as an oral irrigator or waterpik water flosser) is a device that is essentially able to floss between your teeth by pressuring water through a small hose and nozzle. 

It is able to reach places that a toothbrush never could, and can provide a more comfortable experience than using standard string. Basically, it’s just a small pressure washer for your mouth, but the pressure is low enough so that it doesn’t hurt your gums and often provides a much better cleaning than using floss string (testingteam.net)." 

To talk with us about which flossing method may be best suited for your oral health routine, come visit us! Schedule your appointment at http://germantowndentalcare.com/  We are accepting new patients of all ages! Come find out why we treat our patients like family!
