How your dentist treats you and your oral health affects your smile, how you look and feel, what others think of you, aspects of your overall health, your schedule, and your well-being; so why would you trust just any dentist with your mouth?
The Dawson Academy teaches dentists the Concept of Complete Dentistry. This concept instructs dentists to examine and treat teeth as part of the overall oral system, not just as stand-alone elements. This unique approach helps dentists identify causes of problems, rather than simply treating the symptoms. Although more time consuming for dental practices, Complete Dentistry results in more consistent, predictable and healthy outcomes for your oral health.
For example, you may have a chipped tooth you would like repaired. The Dawson Academy’s philosophy teaches dentists to not only repair the tooth but determine the underlying cause(s) that led to the chipped tooth in the first place. This comprehensive approach to treatment of dental problems results in long-term stability, optimal oral health and beauty – that lasts.
In addition, The Dawson Academy teaches dentists to treat each patient individually. Every patient receives a thorough examination so the dentist can better understand the patient’s specific wants and needs. This examination will provide you and your dentist with a complete picture of what is going on in and around your teeth, so that a comprehensive treatment plan can be developed. The benefits pay dividends to patients for the rest of their lives. This may sound like a no-brainer, but this approach, for whatever reason, is not practiced by many dentists.
Our dentists are also trained to use the WIDIOM rule, which stands for, “would I do it on me?” This rule means that the treatment they recommend is the same treatment that they would consider for themselves or suggest to a family member.
With thousands of sayings about the importance of a smile, make sure to choose a dentist that will provide you with the best possible results.
