Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Specialists Philosophy
At Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Specialists our philosophy is simple. We strive to treat each individual patient as if one of us or a close family member was in our office receiving treatment. This involves many different aspects to truly achieve this level of patient-centered care. Our focus is to assure that patients are satisfied with not only their short-term results, but also the long-term benefits they receive from our treatment.
To maintain the level of excellent care provided to our patients, we continue to update our knowledge and experience to provide the most up-to-date, scientifically sound techniques available.
Compassion involves a personalized, caring approach as our Doctor and staff care for each individual patient. We strive to listen to each individual’s needs and concerns so that we can tailor treatment to address those specific concerns.
Professionalism involves an approach to patient care that assures each individual is treated with the utmost respect. It involves providing consistent care from the moment you contact our office until you are released from our care. This may involve following up on a laboratory result or working with the patient to make sure that they receive maximum benefit from their insurance coverage.
Competence is the foundation of care provided our patients. Many professionals provide treatment with introductory training and experience. We at Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Specialists feel that our patients deserve better. We have trained with many of the leading specialists in the various fields involved in our patients' treatment. We feel that exceptional care also involves obtaining the clinical experience to recognize and avoid many of the complications related to oral surgical care. If a complication does occur, we have taken the extra steps to have the expertise to properly treat each individual to assure that the patient receives a good result from their treatment.
