The value of a long-lasting relationship with your dentist and care team.

A long-lasting relationship between a dental patient and their care team goes beyond the examination chair – it’s a partnership that provides years of healthy teeth and bright smiles. 

Whether you’re stopping in every three to six months for a check-up and cleaning, or completing a treatment plan, your Aspen Dental dentist and care team will be there every step of the way. Building a personalized care program that’s just right for you is important because your smile is unique to you! 

At Aspen Dental, you can smile with confidence knowing that your treatment plan is meeting your unique needs.

Build trust with your local care team

Aspen Dental team members across the country know that no two patients are alike, and are dedicated to creating a personal plan to help each one smile just a little wider. 

When you meet your dental care team, you’ll embark on a journey to achieve your dental goals, together. Teams establish a care plan to address areas of concern and help improve overall oral health and hygiene. 

As a patient, the best thing you can do is be open and honest about your thoughts, feelings and fears. Establishing an open line of communication is an important step to achieving oral wellness, and your care team will work hard to address every issue that comes up with kindness and respect.

Why does Aspen Dental work to go the extra mile with patients? Because we know the benefits of a long-term, lasting patient care relationship:

  • Deeper understanding of patient history: a long-term relationship means that providers have more context to build a treatment plan that works.
  • More fulfilling visits: when you visit the same dentist year after year, less time is spent on patient background and more time is dedicated to care that matters.
  • Increased honesty and trust: patients find that discussing health issues with a long-term provider is easier than a new doctor, leading to more personal, open conversations. It’s common for patients to feel embarrassed by care needs, and Aspen Dental care teams work hard to put every patient at ease so they can continue to build towards total trust.
  • A true partner in health: when you establish a long-term relationship with your dental provider, you’re committing to working towards a healthier future - together.
