The Road to Dental Demise is Paved with Good Intentions

Not all dentistry is the same. The great majority of dentists have good intentions, but such factors as differing levels of education, experience and skill, combined with inadequate dental insurance reimbursements and high patient volumes, contribute to less than ideal results. Most dental insurance does not provide complete coverage for the level of dental maintenance and care required and deserved. Low insurance plan reimbursements force hygienists at some practices to rush and provide inadequate service. The priority becomes maintaining high patient volumes with lower levels of quality in dentistry. This seems to attract the hiring of newer, inexperienced and likely debt-ridden new dentists, who are willing to “churn out” production quotas rather than take the time to perfect their craft.

In addition, many independent dentists are pressed to sell their existing practice to corporate entities. Oftentimes, the now former owner/dentist is obligated to continue working at the practice, albeit now as an employee, unable to provide the same level and quality of care because the office is now under corporate guidance and scrutiny. Sadly, this transfer of ownership (and care) is often unknown to the patients who suffer in the end. 

Luckily, you do not have to become a victim to this. At Integrative Dental Specialists of Long Island, Dr. Etess and his team always provide patients with the best level of dental care—NO EXCEPTIONS. The office has the specialized dental skill set and most modern equipment to ALWAYS treat you with the best and safest care.
