Your mouth is a window into you. It is a gateway from which you give and receive words, smiles, food, beverages, kisses, and air. It’s one of the most important parts of your body. So why do so many people let their oral care rest in the hands of the dentist that ranks at the top of a google search or insurance directory? Doesn’t your mouth deserve better than Dr. Google? Drs. Ken and Marnie Collins of Collins Dental & Aesthetic have been caring for patients in the Spokane/Spokane Valley area who require someone better than a name spit out by a search engine or directory.
So, aside from checking the boxes on your list for, “covered by my insurance carrier,” and “in my metro area,” there are a lot of things you might want to factor into your decision making process. First and most importantly, there are actually more categories of dental specialization than “family” and “cosmetic.” Some dentists have special training in understanding the musculoskeletal relationships between your head, neck and jaw to better help patients who have problems with migraines, sleep apnea, and jaw pain. Some dentists take an amputational approach to restorations for cavities that involves more intensive drilling and filling than others who try to preserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. Some dentists undergo additional endodontic training to really understand your gums and how to keep them healthy, which in turn, has an impact on your overall health.
Additionally, you will want to consider factors such as personality, financing options, and communication style to choose a dentist willing and able to operate within your comfort zones for time, finances, and tolerance for pain/sedation.
At Collins Dental & Aesthetic, you can have the best as all of these, in a spa like atmosphere where you can relax and enjoy facial rejuvenation as well. The staff keeps you informed and comfortable every step of the way from setting an appointment to in and out of the dentist’s chair. Drs. Ken and Marnie Collins specialize in all the areas described above. To book an appointment, call our office at 509-368-7788.
