One of the primary goals of Amirad Family Dentistry is integrating patients as partners in the care team.
When patients are more knowledgeable about their care and potential treatment options, they are better able to identify how they do not want to receive their healthcare.
It can happen in a simple conservation in the office, which we think is a great place to start, but education should go beyond patient conversations within dentist’s office. When patients consult multiple sources, they receive a broader view of their oral healthcare and treatment options.
The importance of patient education extends beyond knowledge about conditions and treatment options. Patients also need to understand how to navigate the healthcare system and how to maintain their health data.
At Amirad Family Dental Clinic in Toronto, we strive to provide patients with adequate information through face-to-face training, brochures, social media and more importantly through the clinic’s website (www.Amirad.ca)
