Most people are better able to handle a new experience if they are told what to expect in advance. A medical or dental diagnosis can be especially daunting but if the recommended treatment is explained in a way that the patient can clearly understand and foresee he will be more likely to realize how it will benefit him.

Dentists and hygienists deal with dental issues every day so it is important for them to remember that to the patient just hearing the words “scaling and root planing” for instance, can sound like downright torture. Many dental professionals are turning to video technology to show patients exactly how a procedure is done and how successful the outcome can be in preventing the more serious consequences of periodontal disease. Videos allow the dental professional more time to spend with his or her patients and make the follow up question and answer periods much more productive.

Nobody wants to feel pressured into making a decision particularly when it involves what may seem like an invasive/expensive dental procedure. When you factor in the level of anxiety that some patients feel about an impending dental treatment the decision becomes even more overwhelming. The doctors and staff of the Harman Family Dental Center in Parker understand this and will make every effort to put their patients at ease and give them clear and precise information and all the time they want to consider their options.
