Patient Education

Why is Patient Education Important?

A good dentist never stops learning. Continuing education is how he stays abreast of new techniques and innovations to better serve his patients. Although you may not realize it, a successful patient never stops learning either. Dr. Denes deeply believes that offering his patients and potential patients the educational resources they need to make informed decisions about their dental care results in:

  • Better treatment outcomes
  • Decreased complications after treatment
  • Better at-home care
  • Better understanding of your condition which aids in managing that condition
  • Increased satisfaction with receiving dental care

Learning more about the psychological and physical issues that interfere with receiving regular dental care is the first step toward better oral health. The next step is learning about oral sedation dentistry, a proven method for helping people living with dental fear, dental anxiety, or certain disabilities feel more comfortable while visiting the dentist.

Empowering Our Patients

Informed patients are empowered patients because knowledge gives them the tools they need to make wise decisions about the health of their teeth and gums.
