How will my treatment be explained to me?
At our office, we consider you to be part of your treatment team. Your concerns and opinions are important to us, and you make the final decisions about your treatment. Our goal is to provide you the information you need to make decisions about your dental care that you are comfortable with and that fit your goals for your teeth.
Following an exam, Dr. Gray will inform you of areas of concern and discuss how to address each area. Dr. Gray is also happy to schedule a consultation appointment to review treatment recommendations and options in greater detail.
We prefer to take the time to educate and inform our patients because we find that patients who feel confident in their knowledge about their health tend to have better long-term outcomes. Plus, it's your mouth! You have the right to determine what goes on in there!
A lot of the technology we use in our office is related to patient education and improved diagnostics. For example, our digital dental x-rays are displayed on a computer monitor and we can zoom in, rotate the image, and even highlight certain areas to show you exactly what's going on and explain why we would recommend a particular treatment. Our intraoral camera allows us to show you exactly what we're seeing when we look at your teeth so that you have plenty of information about why treatment is recommended.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. We always want to make sure you understand every aspect of your care.
My experience with Dr. Gray is very positive. The staff is friendly and helpful. Dr. Gray provided me with a written evaluation of my oral health along with a plan to resolve my problems. He has clearly explained what he has found. I have foreknowledge of what will need to be done so that I can plan accordingly. With previous dentists, I was always guessing with several unpleasant surprises. This has not happened with Dr. Gray since I have been seeing him for the last couple of years. He seems to be fast and efficient but takes the time to do things correctly. ~ J.G. , Ft. Collins
