Elmhurst Dentist Works With You To Create A Custom Dental Plan

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Feb 23, 2021

In our Elmhurst dental office, we provide customized comprehensive dental care. When you meet with our dental team, we will work with you to create a personalized dental plan that meets your needs. Here are some of the things that will go into crafting this dental plan…

Your Current Smile

The first thing that our team will do is assess your oral health as it is currently. This provides us with a health status foundation from which we can plan. After this assessment, we’ll be able to make recommendations regarding any restorative treatments that may be necessary so that you can regain oral health.

Your Aesthetic Goals

If there are any things you would like to improve about the appearance of your smile, let our dental team know. It is helpful for us to know about these issues as early in the planning process as possible, as many restorative treatments also provide aesthetic benefits.

Any Upcoming Special Events

Sometimes patients are motivated to see their dentist because they are preparing for a special vent, like a wedding or a reunion. Our dental team provides treatments to suit many different timelines.

Budget and Insurance

Obviously, another really important consideration is your ideal budget. We may also make treatment decisions in such a way as to maximize your insurance benefits.

Preventing Problems

Our dental team will also help you determine what kinds of preventive treatments from which you may benefit. The staple in preventive dental care is the semi-annual professional cleanings; you should complete a cleaning at least every six months in order to keep plaque and tartar at bay. Our dentist will tell you if you should be on a different schedule. Some people also benefit from safeguards like preventive sealants.

As always our Elmhurst dentists are happy to provide you with any additional information that you may need or want. Just give our team a call to get started!
