At Mansfield Dental Center, we're challenging the entire idea of dentistry as repair. We're focused on providing care for the whole patient, mind, body, and soul.
Traditionally, dentists have focused, understandably, on patients teeth. Over 95% of dental work is reparative - correcting problems once they're identified. While there is nothing inherently wrong with this approach, we at Mansfield Dental started to ask ourselves, can dentistry provide more?
We began with a question - What is the true cost of poor oral health?
What we realized is that when our patients lacked confidence in their smile, it affected all aspects of their lives. Conversely, then they took steps to improve their smile, they would see positive net gains in all sectors of their lives.
“My teeth and my smile are now just the way I want, and I can't thank them enough for giving me that confidence.”
When we're suffering from a lack of confidence in our appearance, the domino effect can cause ripples throughout our being:
Embarrassment can lead to ignoring oral health warning signs, causing increased damage and further pushing us in a negative direction in regards to the body.
Our being is our body working in concert with the mind. Pain or anxiety will negatively affect our being.
A poor self-image can adversely affect our interpersonal relationships. Too much focus on what is wrong in our lives upsets the balance.
And of course, lack of confidence will not help in the business world, furthering the decline.
So, as concerned family dentists, we asked ourselves how we can stop this terrible cycle. The answer is to craft beautiful, "epic" smiles. We work with our patients to get results that don't just improve their smile but all sectors of their being.
