The Importance of Finding a Gentle Dentist
Not every dentist is going to be gentle and easy to work with. Many of our patients have had trouble with this in the past. As a result, some of them spent years avoiding the dentist, for fear of embarrassment and discomfort. The damage that has been done in these situations is often difficult to overcome, even for fellow dentists like us. We encourage every single patient to spend the time necessary to find a gentle dentist that works for them. Dr. Jodi Day has had great experience working with new patients. For that reason, we recommend scheduling an appointment with Dr. Day.

When looking for a dentist, there are a handful of qualities you should be looking for. If you want to develop a lasting relationship with your dentist, look for the following qualities.
An excellent gentle dentist should:
1. Listen to your concerns.
The most important quality for a gentle dentist to possess is the ability to listen. If your dentist can listen intently to your concerns, they’ll likely be more understanding and receptive to your needs. This will also allow them to explain things more clearly. Any dentist that claims to be worth going to should hear their patients out and express empathy for them.
2. Teach you about your teeth.
A good dentist needs to be willing to educate their patients. This ensures that a patient is not simply receiving dental care, but it helps them to care about their dental health too.
3. Understand your expectations.
Along with listening to patients, an effective dentist can also express understanding and empathy. They should be able to relate to your concerns and find a way to bring your expectations to life. Having a positive attitude towards your treatment and care is key to ensuring a gentle treatment.
4. Take good care of your teeth.
This one is a given. However, some dentists out there aren’t practicing the best methods even today. We recommend doing some research about necessary treatments and asking a lot of questions. This mentality will help keep your dentist honest. Additionally, you’ll become informed about treatments and caveats of today’s dental world.
5. Ask about your life.
At our office, we greatly value the lives of our patients. It is our goal to cultivate a family atmosphere here at Lincoln Family Dentistry. This means we like to learn about our patients’ families, interests, etc. We believe a relationship-based approach helps your dentist understand you better, and helps us work more effectively with our patients.
