Treatment Planning



For many patients, the process of planning treatment can be a bit confusing and nerve-wracking.

It’s important to keep in mind that most patients are vaguely familiar with dental procedures and other dental terms, but they aren’t quite sure exactly what they entail.

In reality, most people approach their dental treatment with extreme caution and even fear or anxiety; it’s no secret that movies and television don’t exactly do a good job of positively promoting trips to the dentist.

As your patient’s trusted dental professional, it’s up to you to thoroughly explain their recommended treatment in a way that eases their worries and stresses the importance of following through.


How to Increase Treatment Acceptance

In addition to conducting gentle examinations and thorough discussions, before and after photos can provide a key role in helping your patient feel confident in their decision to move forward with dental treatment.

Providing your patient with photos can assist with:

  • Helping them understand their proposed treatment
  • Show them what they can expect the end result to look like
  • Show how the issue at hand can be easily fixed
  • Stress the importance of beginning work as soon as possible

Personal Experience



For many of the patients that I worked with during my time working as a dental assistant, fear of the unknown was perhaps be the biggest thing that prohibited them from following through with the treatment they needed; it was very possible that they did in fact understand that they needed to follow through with treatment for the issues they were experiencing, but some felt that their situation was hopeless.

In some cases, ours patient felt that the condition of their mouth was simply too far gone to bother pursuing treatment. Showing them before-and-after photos with similar cases was a great way to show them that they were not alone in their situation, and that they had every opportunity to correct the situation and achieve the smile of their dreams by committing to their proposed treatment plan.

Access to DentiCalc’s incredible features would undoubtedly have made the process much easier, for both us as the dental professionals as well as for our patients.
