Compassion - Many patients suffer from dental anxiety and find it hard to even sit in the chair because of previous trauma. Compassion helps patients to find comfort despite underlying anxiety. There are also many other barriers to dental care that exist for people, whether it is finances, accessibility, or oral health education. Patients and the dental team need to build a relationship that helps ensure oral health for the rest of a patient’s lifetime.
Thanks Dr. D! Yet again the old adage holds true that “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care”
