Caring for Patients as Family
Being a dentist allows me to help people smile with confidence, restore function and comfort, and relieve often intense pain. My goal with each patient is to establish a long-term, trust-based relationship. I want people to feel comfortable with me and my team, and confident in my care recommendations. I always have the patient’s best interests at heart and care for them as I would my own family.
I was a frequent dental patient in my youth and have experienced many dental procedures firsthand. I can sympathize and empathize with my patients’ feelings and anxiety. I strive to make sure each patient is fully informed, comfortable with their care plan, and encouraged to take control of their oral health.
I believe in compassionate care and forming a partnership with each patient, working together to improve the health of their smile. — Dr. Zina Aaron
