How We Empower Our Patients Through Patient Education

Patient education is a pillar of our mission at Herald Square Dental, NYC. Why? Because patient education means patient empowerment. And it is our responsibility to provide you with the opportunity to make well-informed decisions about your oral health with confidence.

You’ve searched the internet for answers and discovered conflicting information about your oral health condition and the options available to you. Has this kept you up at night? Rather than googling your way through opposing points of view, bring your questions and concerns to us, your New York City dental experts at Herald Square Dental.

We know your situation is unique, and the choices you make are yours alone. So, we want you to be 100% confident when deciding how to address your oral health condition. From your finances and your schedule to your oral care needs and goals, all play a part in what you decide is the ideal dental solution for you.

Let us help you make that choice with confidence. Here’s how we aim to do just that:

Clear Communication

We’re here to provide you with the facts about your oral health as well as your options in the clearest and most transparent way possible. In fact, we go out of our way to explain complex medical terms in regular language so you can make knowledgeable choices. You won’t hear medical jargon, technical terms, or strong opinions when discussing your oral health with our dentists.

Unhurried Appointments

Talking with you, understanding your concerns and expectations, and providing you with options takes time. That’s why we make an effort to schedule ample, unhurried appointments in which we offer detailed yet digestible chunks of information on your case.

Visual Aids

Technology allows us to present you with information in ways that pamphlets and charts cannot. Whether it’s informative articles on your patient portal or video clips online, we supplement our in-person conversations with technology. We’ve found this to be a quick, convenient, and effective way of getting a message across.

Social Media

We are primed to meet you where you are. Since many of you are on social media, we regularly update our various platforms with helpful and informative oral health tips. To keep you up to date, opt-in to receive automated alerts and notifications when we post new information.

Your Feedback

We want to know how you’re feeling about the information you’re receiving so we can customize our oral health education strategy. Be sure to leave a review each time you come in.

When it comes to teeth replacement options, there are many suitable and reliable choices. Despite the widespread belief that dental implants are optimal, dentures or bridges might be the better option for some. No matter your choice, the important thing to remember, the nonnegotiable, is the value of keeping up with your oral hygiene and regular checkups.

  • Make sure to come in for your annual cleanings.
  • Visit our office every 3-6 months to maintain the oral health of your remaining teeth.
  • Schedule checkups for removable dentures every 4-6 years.

Unlike many practices who struggle to provide patient education because of the extra challenge it presents, your dentists at Herald Square Dental are devoted to encouraging open discussions between our team and our patients. We provide clear and coherent information that emboldens our patients to make oral health decisions with certitude.
