As stated by Mandy Hale, “To make a difference in someone’s life you don’t have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful, or perfect. You just have to care.” At Sullivan Dentistry, we strive to use our skills to make a difference in not only in our patient’s oral health, but also in their overall health and confidence. Sometimes all one desires is a beautiful smile to boost self-esteem. Per a recent AACD survey, 65% of people expressed how their smile impacts their confidence. Once performing dental work, we are not only giving back the patient’s smile, but their self-confidence. (Allure Dental Center).
Overall health is a concern of ours, as well. Whenever our patients come into the office before any services are performed, the clinical staff checks their blood pressure, heart rate, and blood sugar. We have had multiple cases that have come in with high blood pressure and resulted in a serious medical condition. These patients have been extremely grateful that we aided in allowing their condition to be diagnosed early.
We also understand that not everyone is able to financially afford the dental care they might need. At our office, we have what are called “dental bucks.” Each team member is allotted fifty dollars in dental bucks each month. They may use this to go toward the treatment cost of the patient of their choosing. This is one of the many ways that we participate in the “Pay it Forward” movement.
Making a change in our patient’s lives will leave a lasting impression, which results in their continued business and even the referral of others. Every practice needs to show that they truly care. Even though Sullivan Dentistry is a business, without our patients there would be no business. Our patient’s lives and health are our number one priority.
