Embracing Implant Prosthodontic Solutions for Patient Centered Care - how do I do this?
The reality of general practice presents several challenges and opportunities for personal and professional growth. One constant is the importance of gaining a profound understanding of how our patients value implant prosthodontic solutions that we are willing and able to provide. The existing barriers to providing implant prosthodontic care will be discussed as well as viable solutions to mitigate these barriers. Patient centred care should be seen through the lens of how it directly impacts our patients’ everyday lives. The entire dental team plays a critical role in delivering true patient centred care. The provision of same day implant prosthodontic solutions is a sought after and attractive way to take care of our patient family, engage our team as well as provide clinicians with challenging, yet exciting and gratifying treatment solutions.
