Patient communication is vital to Claudia. She shared in Private Dentistry magazine:
‘Firstly you have to find out what the patient’s objectives are, be it aesthetics, pain etc. Then
take a good history-medical, dental, social etc to establish the risk factors and carry out a thorough examination. It is imperative to be able to communicate effectively with patients, understand their needs and increase patient satisfaction,’ she explains. ‘I spend a lot of time conversing with the patient and this breaks down barriers and empowers them to achieve and maintain optimal dental health. It is important to listen to the patient and have empathy.’She believes education is key to managing gum disease. ‘It is important that the patient understands how and why they have the disease, what can realistically be achieved, their role in the management -regular attendance, motivated behaviour and improved oral hygiene. I also try to motivate them every step of the way of their accomplishments.’
