“Home” can have various meanings and have many emotional attachments, but when the word is used to describe your dentist office, it can cause some head scratching.
The fact is, when it comes to dental services, a “dental home” makes a lot of sense. The concept originated from the need for patients to visit various dental specialists for their recommended treatment – and the inconvenience caused by scheduling multiple appointments at offices all over town. (Most general dentists need to refer their patients to specialists for braces, extractions, implants or periodontal treatment.)
Dental home means comprehensive services. That’s why Western Dental & Orthodontics fits the description of a dental home so perfectly. While the company started over a 100 years ago with a small office in Los Angeles, it has grown to be the largest and most experienced dental provider in the West, with more than 240 offices in California, Arizona, Nevada and Texas.
Western Dental offices provide the full range of dental services and are staffed with doctors and specialists from the top dental schools in the country. Besides general dentistry, their services include dental implants and restorative crowns using the highest quality materials available, periodontics, endodontics, orthodontics and extractions. And, because of the importance of good oral hygiene in maintaining overall health, each office team includes trained dental hygienists who provide complete oral hygiene services – from routine teeth cleanings to treatments for the various stages of gum disease.
Western Dental brings special meaning to the term “dental home.” It’s part of their commitment to provide comprehensive, quality care to every patient, all in one office.
