Time is on your side don’t rush into anything part 1 (new york cosmetic dentist 10019)

  1. 1. Time is on Your Side; Don’t Rush into Anything! (Part 1) Dr. Catrise Austin
  2. 2. Time is on Your Side; Don’t Rush into Anything (Part 1) §  As we move forward through these sections it is important to remember that knowledge, understanding and research are key to making quality decisions about your dental care and getting an AList Smile. Knowing what’s on the market today will give you options that you may not even realize exist. §  I often take high-tech and cutting-edge procedures for granted, but was reminded the other day of how little people really know about all these products and procedures on the market today. “Dr. Austin,” said one gentleman in his mid-40s, “what you’ve just told me is amazing; why, I haven’t thought about doing anything to my teeth since I got my braces off nearly thirty years ago!”
  3. 3. Time is on Your Side; Don’t Rush into Anything (Part 1) §  So remember that even if you think your smile is beyond hope, or your specific problem beyond fixing, or even a simple procedure is beyond your budget, think again! Slow down, take your time and read these sections carefully because the answer to your problem could be just around the corner. (Or, in this case, the next page!) §  Of course, it wasn’t always this way. Once upon a time, dentists and other members of the medical field were revered and well-rewarded for their skills. Patients, and money, were both plentiful and student loans were quickly paid off, as were mortgages and fancy cars. Today, however, there are more and more dental providers on every block and more and more liability and malpractice insurance premiums to pay for every dentist.
  4. 4. Time is on Your Side; Don’t Rush into Anything (Part 1) §  Unfortunately, instead of concentrating on honing their craft and personalizing their service to meet the demands of their patients, some dental providers have become more like salesmen, providing not only regular cleanings but also pushing – and pushing hard – procedures and products a patient may not need or, if they might eventually need them, may not be quite ready for just yet. §  I had a patient come in not long ago whose teeth were in pretty poor shape. Although I knew it had been awhile since he’d been to the dentist, when I asked him how long it had been he responded with a “why” instead of a “when” answer.
  5. 5. Time is on Your Side; Don’t Rush into Anything (Part 1) §  He explained, “I’ve been to three dentists in the last six years and every single one of them was a high-pressure sales experience. One wanted me to get braces; another practically demanded I use his – and only his – whitening program and get veneers. The last one wanted to charge me separately to clean my upper and lower teeth; at $150 a pop!” §  I understood his frustration. Know that what I am sharing with you in this section is NOT a high-pressure sales job or a way to make more money for myself, my competitors or my colleagues. That is what is so important about a blog like this one; the more you know, the sooner you recognize when something is necessary or a luxury. The more informed you are, the better decisions you’ll make.
  6. 6. Time is on Your Side; Don’t Rush into Anything (Part 1) §  And one of the first things you need to know when preparing to get your A-List Smile is that (in most instances), time is on your side. Yes, your routine cleanings need to be performed twice annually and cavities need to be filled but, barring various medical procedures that need to be done to protect your health, the assorted cosmetic products and procedures I’ll outline in Step 4 can be done on your own time, at your own leisure.
