Building Trust Through Education
Since we provide specialized services, our patients are referred from local dental professionals entrusting us to co-managetheir oral care. Because of this, we understand the value of patient education at the Masters Institute of Implants & Periodontics. A well-informed patient not only develops a trust in our services, but they are equipped to decide the best course of treatment based on our initial evaluation.
We make it our mission to provide excellent, personalized care so your visits are as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Your first appointment is primarily a consultation designed to prepare you for the procedure and answer any questions you have. We conduct the exam, take x-rays, and determine your exact goals for the treatment.
We encourage you to look at our YouTube channel between appointments to hear other patients’ testimonials about their experience with specific procedures. In addition to internet resources, we offer written material explaining the benefits of your recommended treatment. At your second appointment, we share with you our customized and comprehensive PowerPoint presentation explaining our findings and our recommended course of action.
