What kind of dental practice is SVDG? My partner, Ron Ames, DMD, our associate Jon Owen, and I want profit to be a side effect of doing the right thing for our patients each and every time we are together. If you as a patient could benefit from treatment, great! Let’s communicate the cost and arrange a time to satisfy a need. If you’re in great shape, fantastic! We’ll cheer you on toward a great next visit as well. We are not pressured by anyone above us to “produce”. There is no one offering us a bonus if we talk Ms. Smith and 34 of her peers into whitening her teeth this month. At Spring Valley Dental, there is no one between my patients and me. It comes down to what a patient wants.
Being a dental hygienist and a mother, my children know the concern I have with candy and sugar. My goal every day, is to help educate parents and kids about the importance of good oral home care. The key in life is that almost everything is acceptable in moderation. And when talking about candy, it is best when combined with brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups.
