Did you know that dentists who are members of the American Dental Association have standards they live by each day? Well, it’s true! The ADA standards make sure each patient feels welcomed, respected, and cared for each time they visit their dentist. The five standards that ADA dentists have include:
Respect a patient’s wants and needs
Your dentist will respect your wants and needs and will also include you in every decision regarding your treatment plan. That way you will be involved in a meaningful way and your wants and needs will be first priority. You can also expect to have privacy and confidentiality when you attend your appointments.
Do no harm
It’s your dentist’s responsibility to keep you safe and healthy. This means that he needs to keep up with the current dental developments and technology to make sure you are receiving the best treatment and care possible.
Your dentist works to do good each day, which means that he provides high-quality and timely treatment all while keeping your needs, desires, and values in mind.
Your dentist will treat everyone fairly, no matter their race, religion, creed, socioeconomic background, ethnicity, and current health conditions. Your dentist will not discriminate and will provide excellent dental care without prejudice.
Your dentist will be completely honest and truthful. This will help you build trust with your dentist, which will make it possible to work toward a strong and healthy smile together.
