If your dentist is a member of the American Dental Association, that means he works by five standards that make each patient feel welcomed, respected, and cared for. Those five standards are:

Respect a patient’s wants and needs
Your dentist will respect your wants and needs and will also include you in every decision regarding your treatment plan. That way you will be involved in a meaningful way and your wants and needs will be first priority. You can also expect to have privacy and confidentiality when you attend your appointments.

Do no harm
Your dentist will do everything he can to make sure you are safe and healthy. One way he accomplishes this goal is by keeping current with the latest dental technology and treatment. That way you will have the best and most up-to-date treatment possible.

Do good
Your dentist will provide high-quality and timely dental treatment all while keeping your needs, desires, and values in mind. You will be treated and considered as an individual and your dentist will keep your best interest at heart.

Be fair
Your dentist does not discriminate and will provide top-notch dental care without prejudice. Everyone is treated fairly and equally.

Be truthful
Your dentist will be completely honest with you, which will help you and your dentist build a relationship based on trust. Once that trust is developed, you and your dentist can work toward a healthy smile together.
