How do you ensure specialized care for your patients? We are patient centered. You hear the term a lot, but at River Edge Dental, we truly make every decision, every daily action, based on the individual needs of each patient. Yes, it takes more time, resources and commitment, but we feel when patients come to us, they are expecting exceptional dentistry. Patients trust us, and exceeding their expectations is what we are known for and what we dedicate ourselves to delivering every day. Please highlight any unique services that your practice offers its patients. We’re most known for taking the extra time to do a full oral health physical with each patient. This includes a review of your medical condition and family history; oral cancer, gum health and restorative screenings; and computer bite analysis and airway assessment for risks of sleep apnea. It is thorough and an important part of creating the best possible treatment plans for our patients.
What is the most common misconception among your patients regarding dental care? The most common misconception is that dental care is somehow separate and apart from your overall health. We have patients that have been diligent about attending to their every medical need, but are surprised to find that their oral health is one of the best predictors of their physical health. Once they learn about the power of the connection, they get excited about the possibilities and soon become advocates of our type of dentistry to their friends. What’s in store for you and your practice in the future? We’ll continue our education at the Las Vegas Institute, as we feel this is the best post-graduate dental learning facility in the world. We want to be on the leading edge and work hard to stay on the forefront of technology.
