Why JH Emergency Dental?
Hello San Antonio! A lot of people have been asking me about why I opened JH Emergency Dental.
I’ve been practicing dentistry for coming on 10 years and during this time I’ve seen more and more people delay or avoid urgent dental care due to a number of reasons. Most people assume that is always about the money when people don’t get the dental care they need, however, I’ve found that although money can play a big part in people holding off on their treatment, it is just as likely due to scheduling conflicts or patients not feeling like they are being listened to. For a lot of patients they just want to fix what is “broken”. They don’t want the $40,000 entire treatment plan. They have work, family and other obligations that are important to them and other than what is causing them pain they are doing fine and eating what they want, so they get discouraged from visiting their dentist to avoid the whole big dollar treatment plan.
When patients visit JH Emegency Dental, our focus is addressing the patients urgent concern and helping them get to feeling better as soon as possible. Although we are able to provide comprehensive care for patients (and if that’s what our patient desires we will accommodate them), we listen to our patients and take care of what is most important to them, at times that are convenient for them.
I believe that preventive care is always the best option! I also believe that emergency dental care is an important and necessary need. When you visit us at JH Emergency Dental you maintain control over your dental treatment, my job is to make as easy and comfortable as possible! We look forward to seeing you!
