Tariq Drabu is a Manchester born and educated dentist and specialist oral surgeon, he is also the owner of the successful Langley Dental Practice. Dr Drabu has worked in dental hospitals in the UK and Saudi Arabia and is the Clinical Lead Dentist for the Oral Surgery Assessment Clinic and Treatment Services at NHS Heywood Middleton and Rochdale. Dedicated to education, Dr Drabu also mentors and tutors postgraduate dentists in oral surgery at the UCLAN Dental Clinic in Preston.
Tariq Drabu said, “An independent survey was done of 1,600 patients who visited their dentists on an annual basis, of which ninety six percent advised that they were happy with the service they have received in terms of their dental care. This is such good news for the industry, which proves that efforts being made to improve the patient experience is paying off throughout the country.”
Tariq Drabu in Manchester went on to say, “Dental professionals are now taking the time to explain to their patients the treatment options and plans available, this enables patients to know exactly what to expect in terms of treatment, number of visits and price. Informing patients is a very important part of what we do, we need to ensure the patients are fully aware of their treatment options, what is involved and how long it will take whether it’s a simple filling or tooth extraction.”
Tariq Drabu closed in saying, “The dental industry in the UK can only improve in the next few years as long as all dental practices take the transparent approach with their patients. Displaying price lists, explaining treatment plans and treating patients with the highest quality services are all ways we can improve the patient experience and ensure their oral health. At Langley Dental Practice, the entire team understands the importance of patient care and keeping the patient informed every step of the way, which is how we have grown into one of the top choices in the area. We have received many positive reviews from our patients on the NHS Choices website – a link to them is here. If all dental professionals ensure that they provide high quality service, advise patients upfront of the costs involved and offer them a treatment plan that makes sense, the satisfaction percentage will reach one hundred percent in the next few years.”
