Social media and the internet have made information easily attainable for everyone. This means that the average person must navigate the information available and determine how accurate and appropriate it is. New patients coming into the Yonge and Eglinton Centre dental office often have great questions and a good understanding of dentistry.
The problem we come across is that these patients are not able to put the information completely together because of their lack of general understanding of the oral condition. It has become a happy challenge to help these people simply understand their health and clarify the quality information available from the less accurate sources,
It is always our pleasure to sit down and understand the individual needs of our patients. Whether the question is from a long standing member of our dental community or a new patient trying to simply improve their overall health.
