Thanks for joining us for Part 2 of our blog series! Last time, we talked about some of the important things you should consider when choosing a family dentist in Edgewood, KY and the nearby communities. We said to think about whether the dentist is a one-stop shop, offers convenient appointments, and has same-day emergency appointments available. Dr. Kevin McMahon and our team can offer all these conveniences, but today we’d like to share a few more reasons to consider during your search. Most of these focus on the professionals you’re trusting with your family’s smiles.
Experience is crucial when choosing any healthcare provider, and your dentist is no exception! Your smile is very visible, so you want someone you can trust to keep it looking great! You also want them to provide the treatments needed to keep it healthy.
When looking for a family dentist, you have to consider not only whether the dentist has the experience you need, but also the experience needed for all ages! We are proud to say that our doctors and team are trained to handle procedures for every age! Aside from our academic backgrounds, we work hard to keep up with the latest techniques and technology for services that benefit all ages. Most of our team far exceeds the required hours of continuing education to remain abreast of the latest in dentistry, all to serve your family better!
In addition, we have decades of experience under our belts, which has allowed us to perfect the treatments you want and need. Our expertise is just one reason our dentists have received top dentist awards! You can read more about our award-winning dentists here.
Experience is great, but you also want to look for a dentist you can trust. This goes two ways: your dentist and team should be trustworthy people who aren’t in it just for the money, and they should also provide you with treatments that you know will have outcomes that exceed your expectations.
Dr. McMahon and his team want you to understand that we care about every single patient as more than just another person or an appointment time on that day’s schedule. We care about each member of your individually and treat you just like you’re part of our family! Our dental family wants to get to know you and establish a relationship with you. You will never feel like another name on a list here, like you’re just one more person to bring in the doors and push out as quickly as possible! We will respect you as a human so that we can do what’s best for you.
Also, we make sure to keep you informed during your treatment or your kid’s treatment. This is a very important way to build doctor-patient trust! You or your family member will never have any treatment performed that you don’t know about, and we will never push any expensive treatment on you. You can rest assured that we will recommend what is best for your family to keep their health and smile as beautiful as possible, but ultimately, the decisions rest with you.
Have you ever gone to a dentist who just lectured you the whole time? Did you leave the office not inspired to take better care of your teeth but just feeling belittled and demeaned? You should never feel that way at a dentist’s office! The same is true for your kids.
Don’t discount the importance of the team’s attitude when choosing a family dentist. You and your entire family should feel comfortable and encouraged at the dentist. Here at Edgewood Dental Care, we have a caring, compassionate team who doesn’t guilt you into taking care of your oral health! We’re here to encourage you and improve your health without lectures or fear. For your kids, we love to teach them about good oral health so that they can get a headstart on a healthy smile!
Aside from the doctors and staff, you should consider what other things a family dentist can offer to make your family comfortable and give you the best possible experience. Join us next time to find out, and contact us now for convenient family appointments!
