Our Care Process
At Thornhill Dental a care coordinator is an integral part of Team TD and will serve as your dedicated point of contact during your dental journey at Thornhill Dental. Care coordinators are committed to assisting you with any inquiries regarding your treatments and offering unwavering support throughout the entire process.
Outlined below are several compelling reasons highlighting the significance of our care coordinators:
Treatment Understanding: Patients often have questions and concerns about their dental treatments. A care coordinator helps explain treatment options, procedures, and post-treatment care, ensuring that patients are well-informed and can make educated decisions about their oral health.
Smooth Workflow: We understand that coordinating appointments, treatments, and consultations can be complex and sometimes confusing. A dedicated care coordinator streamlines this process, ensuring efficient scheduling and reducing waiting times for our valued patients. This contributes to a smoother workflow for both patients and the dental team.
Personalised Support: Every patient’s dental needs and concerns are unique. A coordinator provides personalised support, addressing specific questions and alleviating anxieties, which can lead to a more positive patient experience.
Treatment Plan Continuity: A care coordinator helps ensure that treatment plans are carried out as intended, reducing the likelihood of miscommunication, or missed steps in the process.
Relationship Building: Developing a rapport with patients fosters trust and loyalty. The coordinator’s consistent presence and personalised care contribute to building strong patient-practice relationships.
In summary, a care coordinator plays a vital role in improving patient care, communication, and practice efficiency. They contribute to a positive patient experience, streamlined workflows, and effective collaboration among the dental team, ultimately benefiting both patients and the practice itself.
The main goal of our care coordinators is to make your experience as smooth and comfortable as possible, from your initial consultation to the completion of your treatment. They serve as a supportive link between you and Thornhill Dental, helping to streamline communication, appointments, and your overall treatment experience.
This may typically involve:
- Free consultation appointment booked (via our reception team).
- At the consultation appointment, a care coordinator will discuss your dental history/concerns and goals for your smile with potential treatment solutions.
- An appointment will be booked with a dentist based on the type of treatment you require.
- Following your appointment with the dentist you can either proceed straight to treatment or have a in depth options meeting with your care coordinator for further discussion including finance options, expected outcomes and associated costs.
- A care coordinator will schedule the necessary appointments which best suit your availability.
- Your care coordinator will be your point of contact and will offer follow up to help answer any queries which may arise.
- Your care coordinator will hold your end of treatment celebration appointment to ensure you are happy with all dental results, address any post treatment care instructions and take where necessary any final photos.
