Canberra general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and orthodontics clinic, Acacia Dental Group, is urging patients to consider the benefits of patronizing a privately-owned dental practice as opposed to visiting corporate dental practices.
Though the need for general dentistry is as high as ever, modern dentistry also has a lot to offer in terms of the value it can provide to patients. Apart from helping patients with toothaches, dentures, root canals, and emergency procedures, modern dentistry also encompasses many cosmetic procedures that can help those whose career demands looking aesthetically pleasant and appealing. Many professionals today earn big bucks in consumer-facing industries or on social media where how they carry themselves can make a huge difference in how they are perceived. Cosmetic dentistry procedures can help patients fix dental issues to boost their confidence and make them more desirable in their chosen industry. Some modern cosmetic dentistry procedures that are sought-after include crowns, dental implants, Invisalign, veneers, and teeth whitening.
CEREC technology enables the design, creation, and fitting of custom-made crown restorations in practice and all in one single appointment. Dental implants are installed using titanium posts that are surgically implanted in the jawbone and crowns are placed on top to create replacement teeth that look, feel, and function just like the real thing. Invisalign is a brand name for customized clear aligners that make ‘train-track’ braces a thing of the past. They use SmartTrack technology to straighten teeth quickly, comfortably, and successfully. Porcelain veneers can be bonded to the teeth’s surface to improve both size and color. The Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed is a teeth whitening system that uses LED lights to speed up the process and produce maximum results in minimal time.
Patients also have more options than ever when it comes to seeking dental treatment. Large corporate dental practices are often on top of the list as they have the most marketing money to spend and, consequently, the highest visibility. However, there are some glaring ways in which large practices are a drain on a patient’s resources – both their time and money.
A spokesperson for Acacia Dental Group explains what makes privately-owned dental practices a much better option as compared to corporate dental chains by saying, “Dental practices need to provide quality dental care, advanced dentistry, modern technology, competitive prices, and, most importantly, great patient care. You don’t get that with the conglomerates. They see you as just another way to make a buck; as just one more patient they can bill while minimizing costs to themselves. You get so much more with family-run practices such as Acacia Dental Group which is run by the husband and wife duo of Mr. and Mrs. Yalamanchili. Family-run practices often have a generational history of serving the community. They may even have served multiple generations of the same family. Having formed lifelong bonds with local patients, they are invested in the long-term dental health of the people that they have been seeing and interacting with regularly for decades. In contrast, the customer service at corporate practices feels cold and sterile. Since large companies have a high turnover, the person you are talking with today might not work there tomorrow. Family-run practices are also more flexible when it comes to pricing as they will offer free initial consultations and a range of payment options to pay for treatment. On the other end of the spectrum, large hospitals bill you excessively for trivial services and are also known to sic debt collectors on patients that default on a single payment.”
