Did you know your dentist is a member of the American Dental Association? Well, it’s true! The ADA is an organization that helps each dentist do their absolute best each day. In fact, there are five promises that each dentist needs to keep, and those promises are:
No. 1: Respect a patient’s wants and needs
As a patient, you have the right to make decisions about your treatment, which means that your dentist will recommend a treatment but you will make the final decision. You can also expect privacy and confidentiality when it comes to your treatment and oral health.
No. 2: Do no harm
Your dentist does their absolute best to keep you safe and healthy. So, to make this possible, they attends continuing education courses to make sure they is up to date on the newest treatment and technology.
No. 3: Do good
Your ADA dentist works very hard to provide high-quality treatment in a quick and timely manner. Your dentist also makes sure to consider your values, desires, and needs while they is helping you achieve your ideal smile.
No. 4: Be fair
Your dentist treats each patient equally, which means they does not discriminate and will provide dental care without prejudice.
No. 5: Be truthful
Your dentist will make sure to be honest with you throughout your entire visit. This will help you develop a patient-doctor trust, which will help you have a great dental experience.
Your dentist keeps each one of these promises to make sure you have the best and most successful dental experience possible.
