Kalispell, MT Dentist Adopts Modern Treatment Philosophy for Improved Care
July 06, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsJuly 6, 2015 - Kalispell, MT – Dr. Cameron Clark is a cosmetic dentist who focuses the nature of his professional care around what will best help patients get the care they want to meet their oral health goals.
Cameron Clark, DMD realized a while ago that many patients don't respond to what some dental practices offer – a method of "drill-and-cap" dentistry where individual teeth are fixed as they need to be, no long-term treatment plans are discussed, and there is little consideration for what the patient had in mind for their treatment plan.
Recently, Dr. Clark has remodeled his patient treatment philosophy from the standard single-tooth treatment method, into comprehensive oral health care that creates a long-term strategy for health and wellness – and, most importantly, asks patients, "How Can I Help You?" This patient-focused and modern philosophy for dental care is based around Bill Blasford's best-practices for oral health practitioners. Bill Blasford is a dental practice consultant, as well as a dentist himself, who speaks professionally about the best ways for dentists to communicate with and successfully treat their patients.
Dr. Clark's treatment approach begins by establishing a patient's wants and needs so he can deliver exactly what they are expecting. With this immediate care plan in mind, Dr. Clark is then able to develop a bigger-picture treatment plan that ensures the patient is also able to enjoy improved oral health for years to come. Dr. Clark explains, "If a patient has damaged teeth, we don't simply tell them that a problem needs to be corrected and leave the conversation there. We complete a full evaluation of a patient's oral health, notify them of any issues, and ask what we can do to help fulfill their wishes."
Dr. Clark's office builds comprehensive, patient-centered dental plans that include procedures such as:
