Dr. Mark Caggiano, DDS
The Philosophy of my practice I think stems in two different directions. One, is that I try and treat the people the way I’d like to be treated, number one. And number two is that I don’t want to tell patients anything but I want to give them information and allow them to make decisions based on that information and hopefully if I give you enough good information, you’ll make those decisions based on what’s best for you. Then what happens is that when we start restoring or fixing somebody’s mouth we can, we’re not only making it look better or we’re not only getting the cavities out but we’re restoring it so things will last a long, long time. I jokingly, I may jokingly say to a patient my goal was so you don’t have to see me but in effect if I’ve done my job correctly, it’s going to limit the amount of time that you have to spend in the dental office for the rest of your life. And that to me is the value that I can give you as a dentist. If you have to keep coming in here for things over and over and over again it’s wasting your time, it’s wasting your money and it is wasting your energy. If we restore things properly, if we fix things properly initially, you really don’t have to spend much time at a dental office. Its just maintaining the health of the gum. The relationship that I have with patients that, I think stems from this cold therapy type of work that we’re trying to do. I can’t do everything. I can do the dental stuff but in terms of taking care of your mouth we can show you, you need to do that. Or, or and we need to follow, we need to help each other, we need to guide you through that and so when I talk about relationships, it’s not just doing the stuff in your mouth, its following things along over the years. But I do like to think of my patients is extended family. The greatest joys I have in life always stems from these reflections upon the times I’ve had with patients.
