Patient-Centric Care

From the desk of
Dr. Sabiha Bunek, Editor-in-Chief

  This month’s issue focuses on patient-centric care. Patients often come to us with specific needs and concerns, especially when noted by our hygienists. Sometimes, patients are very aware of the conditions present, but are unable to remedy them on their own—they cannot reduce sensitivity despite several attempts, they can’t seem to brush properly or effectively, they don’t care for the shade of their teeth, or they have painful oral lesions which interfere with daily living. Dr. Fiona Collins, our clinical editor, focuses on several areas of concern often brought to our hygiene teams, and used her expertise to advise us on this issue. We all want happy patients who receive care specific to their needs.
