The November issue of Dentistry Today magazine features an article from Dr. Rick Leppo, a leading general dentist in Columbia, Illinois, just outside of St. Louis, MO. Dr. Leppo provides expert insight into building a top-quality patient experience. His understanding has proven that patients are more likely to trust all aspects of their care when they have a positive dental experience. This includes interactions with staff, appointments and insurance handling, financing, amenities and comfort.

Dr. Leppo optimizes patients’ experiences at his Columbia-Waterloo practice by taking the time to define and prioritize systems along with his team. With patient comfort, care and feelings as top priority, every element focuses on making the patient’s life easier. Therefore, when specialized treatments are needed, such as endodontics, Dr. Leppo offers the convenience of in-house services to make the best use of a patient’s time. When matters arise with insurance, treatment scheduling or oral health updates, special efforts are made to ensure that patients get the information that they need when they need it. With honesty and professionalism at the forefront of every interaction, Dr. Leppo leads his practice with a simple motto—to treat each patient like family.
