Our office slogan is, "Excellence in the art and science of dentistry." What that means to our staff, and to me, is dentistry is mechanics, but the art of it is the cosmetics and mechanics, but also—and more importantly—the art is how do you treat your people. The people that come through that door are coming through here and they're here because they need help. They may not voice that but they do, they need help. Our staff is so good at seeing those people as people, and seeing what is their individual need? What's their individual want? What is really making them hurt?
A lot of times, it's emotional. Coming here is a very, very emotional experience for a lot of people. People come in the door and they have to sit in that dental chair. That's a very, very, very unsafe position for a lot of people. Then people put something on, there's a bib on you, now I'm laying back, and I got a bib on me around people I don't know. If you think that doesn't make most people fearful, you are dead wrong. One thing that we do when we sit there—the first thing that we do is we sit there and we talk to our patients. What brings you in and what can we do for you? You would not believe how many times people start to cry. You can see the emotion in their face, and I sit there, with our staff, we have such kind dental assistants, they're wonderful. They say, "What's making you upset right now? What is the problem? What is the real concern for you?" Then we have personal stories, and people will start to tell their personal stories a little bit.
Then I think once they understand, as I always tell everybody, "We're here to take care of you. We're here to solve your chief complaint. We're going to get you out of pain or solve that one problem that brought you through the door. You are in control of your visit. We're here to work for you." When they understand that, and they do because we're sincere when we say that, they start to relax. Once they relax, we can share things with each other, and I can listen to their personal story and then I know exactly how to treat them. That's, I think, the most important thing.

Many times, we treat people who have tried to get help at other dental practices and were turned away.
