Throughout my years as a Chicago dentist, I’ve created partnerships with certain businesses. I have found businesses that share the same values that I have when approaching how to treat my patients. I always refer to the same people because I know for a fact that these people are going to take care of YOU the same way that I would.
The people that I always refer to are Peter Cabrera for gum issues, Melissa Connell for pediatric dentistry and Stephen Lippitz for braces.
But I have other partnerships that are not so obvious. One of those partnerships is Henry Finn, MD. His main nurse, Betty, is one of our awesome patients.
I met Betty about 12 years ago when I went out to dinner with her and Dr Finn, an orthopedic surgeon. The way they both described how they take care of their patients helped us to form an instant connection.
I frequently refer patients to Betty and Dr Finn. I know that Betty is going to go out of her way to make the patients feel comfortable and at ease, just like Dr. Finn. Every single person that I’ve referred has thanked me after they meet them.
Many of you may not know this, but when a patient has knee or hip replacement surgery they are more susceptible to infections from bacteria that are found in the mouth. Whenever anyone has this type of surgery, they need to have their gums completely healthy. They need to get a dental clearance.
That means, no bleeding with brushing or flossing.
If an orthopedic patient needs to get clearance from a Chicago dentist and those patients don’t have a dentist, Dr. Finn and Betty refer them to us because they know they are going to be treated right.
Many times we are able to retain those patients. They become a part of the Dente community. We are grateful to Dr. Finn and Betty for the partnership and friendship that we have formed, and for their trust in us that we will treat their patients right. We also appreciate it when those orthopedic patients stay with us.
If you are interested in a Chicago dentist that has the latest technology, please call 773-292-1911 and ask for Zhana or Katie. Tell them you’d like to set up a consultation.
Floss like a madman!
