Everyone understands the importance of regular dental visits. If you go to the dentist frequently, not just when you have a problem, you’re better able to protect your teeth. Many people just go to the dental professional who their parents took them to as children. They use the same dental office without really doing a lot of research. For this reason, some people are happy with their choice, but many are not. The question is, what makes a good dentist? What are some of the advantages of choosing a professional like Dr. Russo?
First and foremost, a good dentist should have manual dexterity. This is a basic requirement in order to do the job well. He is going to have to work inside your mouth, which is a relatively small space when compared to the size of the human hand. While working inside this small and sensitive space, Dr. Russo has excellent motor skills and excellent coordination.
You also want your dentist to have good interpersonal skills. Basically, you want him to be a people person. One of the reasons why this is so important is because most people don’t necessarily love going to a dental office. They’re nervous about sitting in the dental chair. They’re nervous about having dental tools placed in their mouth. And so a good dental professional is going to be able to calm people down. Dr. Russo knows just what to do to put people at ease.
Excellent communication skills go hand-in-hand with being a people person. Strong communication skills are key because you want your dentist to be able to explain to you the procedure that he’s going to do, you want him to be able to explain it to you in a clear way that you understand, and you want him to be able to answer any questions that you might have about pre-treatment care and post-treatment care. The ability to take complicated technical information and break it down into something that even a child can understand is one of the hallmarks of a good dentist like Dr. Russo.
Finally, you likely want to visit a dentist who is hungry for knowledge. You should be happy to know that Dr. Russo at Implant and Comprehensive Dentistry thoroughly enjoys learning, taking on new challenges, and staying up-to-date with the latest technology. All of these things are qualities that his patients value. This is one of the reasons why so many people have placed their confidence in and have seen the advantages of choosing Dr. Russo as their dentist.
