I believe communication is one of the most important aspects in achieving mutually desired results. More important, is often the clinical skills of the dentist as achieve those healthy results is not something that should be taken lightly. I strive to help my patients feel comfortable, not only with the treatment itself, but also with their understanding of the treatment.
