We Understand That Each And Every Patient Has His Or Her Own Unique Needs And Desires.
While some patients want to do allot of research and stay involved during clinical treatments. Others want to find a profession they can trust to make the best care decisions for them.
We encourage our patients to confidently and kindly communicate their preferences, needs and fears. As an example, please let us know your disposition regarding being informed about treatment decisions and treatment steps.
Two Patient Options:
Patients who do not want to be troubled with too many of the treatment details and prefer that only the best treatment options are presented.
All patients are seeking a doctor they can trust. But only a percentage of these patients empower the doctor to make most of the treatment decisions. Often, these patients do not want to be troubled with too many of the treatment details. And often these patients are only interested in the best treatments choices available. If this best describes your preference, please inform Dr. Landers at your initial consultation.
Patients who have the want to enthusiastically help with treatment choices and stay informed about each associated step.
Are you a person who does allot of online research and who wants to stay very involved with treatment choices? Dr. Landers will present you with all of your options and you will always be a part of important decisions. Do you want a “step by step” review of clinical steps before, during, and after treatments? Dr Landers is courteous during his treatment presentations and attentive to his patients’ needs and dental fears before, during, and after treatments. As an example, Dr. Landers takes the time to inform, educate and answer questions using terminologies that his patients understand. Please keep in mind that Dr. Landers treats many patients with varying wants and needs, and would like to encourage you to communicate your need to stay informed.
Sharing the two previous options above is meant to represent an example of communication choices. We fully understand that there are many patients in between. Its all good, we simply want to encourage you to share your preferences on our E-Forms or at your initial visit at our office.
