Dr. Alan Paradis: What is it about prosthodontics practice or indeed about our speciality practice that would impact the patient? What are they going to notice when they come in here? What’s the difference?
Dr. David McFadden: One of the reason I think we’re such good partners and colleagues is that our philosophies are nearly identical that the patient’s going to have a relationship with us from day one. Our consultations are done by us with a patient where the patient and their spouse or the patient and their family. We believe that educating the person on their diagnosis and all their treatment options is what sparing right to the consumer. So I think that’s the first thing is that you’re getting consultations and treatment plan is given by an auxiliary, a dental assistant or an office manager. They didn’t go to dental school; they don’t understand the complexities of the needs of the patient. So from the first appointment to the last, we are going to be the one discussing, delivering the care and doing all the follow up ourselves.
Dr. Alan Paradis: When you say you delivered to care, what do you really mean by that? Are you the guy putting the crown in the mouth?
Dr. David McFadden: Yeah I mean nothing happens for our patients except what we do with our own hands. It’s us all the time and I think many patients this will resonate loudly with many patients who are seeing this video is that many offices you see the doctor for twenty percent of the appointment and the dental assistants who are doing the rest of the treatment impressions, delivering crowns, cementing crowns, adjusting dentures and we don’t believe in that model at all. The paying us for our skillset and our ability and our care and that’s what we are going to give them.
Dr. Alan Paradis: And I think of one of the aspects of having auxiliaries delivered, diagnosis or treatment plans to patients is that in many offices these people have been incentivized to sell dentistry, produce dentistry. Their courses that dentists attend on how to produce more dentistry how to sell more dentistry to your patients. I think this is a huge difference between our practice. I feel like I am here to respond to the patient’s needs and I actually don’t sell any dentistry. I many times, unsold treatment that patients have been sold because a dentist wanted to profit from problems in their mouth so our practice approach is so vastly different from what a modern profitable dental practice model has become so it may be a bit old fashioned and we may have earned our grey hairs a little bit more but our emphasis is best for both the patient and the doctor and that’s and individual patient experience.
Dr. David McFadden: We would to invite you to come for a complimentary consultation to see if it’s a fit for you.
