How do I know which dental treatment is best for me?
At Smile Designs of Long Island, one of the tenets of our practice is the importance of patient education. We understand that sometimes treatment recommendations can seem scary, confusing, or complicated. We encourage our patients to ask questions, and we always allow enough time to go over every possibility.
When we recommend a specific treatment to you, we will provide a full discussion of advantages and any disadvantages. We will take our time to explain not only the treatment under discussion but other options, if they are available. We will never force a specific treatment; the final decision is yours and yours alone.
It is important to us that you make an informed decision that you feel completely comfortable with.
