The New Patient Experience: Promoting Care Through Patient-Centered Communication Ankur Gupta, DDS
Cultivating patient-centered communication is a crucial aspect of overall patient care. Complete patient care consists not only of physical healing, but also of addressing the socio-emotional needs of the patient, as this has a direct impact on treatment outcomes. Communication between patients and staff should provide patients with the sense that they are valued, respected, and cared for. In addition, patient-centered communication should be undertaken as a system or set of policies that all dental staff members commit to and follow consistently.
