Dr. Nick Cost Talks about what sets Confident Smiles of Laurens apart
I would say our commitment to not only excellent clinical outcomes and delivering a great smile, but I would say making sure that we are a solution-focused office. So, you know, I’ve had the experience of going to a dentist in college, because we all take great care of our teeth when we’re teenagers and off at school, right? So, you know, and I had some gingivitis and things like that, and they really gave me a bad guilt trip of it. You know, they made me kind of feel like, you know, what’s the matter with you? What are you doing? And almost lectured me about what I was doing wrong, instead of focusing on what I was doing right. That experience always stuck with me. And I can’t tell you how often I have patients tell me the reason why they don’t like coming to dentists, is because they’ve had a bad experience like that. Not just painful experience, but just, you know, being yelled at, or lectured, and they just wasn’t a good experience.
So, we are committed to being a solutions-focused practice. You know, I always tell patients, you know, when they come in to see us for consultation, Hey, I’m not here to beat you up or make you feel bad about what you have or haven’t done. Like, we need to know enough about where you’ve been, to know where we need to go. And from there, you know, our commitment is we’re never gonna give you a guilt trip and make you feel bad about what hasn’t happened, we’re just gonna focus on what’s going right, and how we can get better, and deliver a great smile for you.
