The Difference Between Corporate Dentistry and Family Dentistry Exposed by Mukilteo Family Dentistry

Mukilteo Family Dentistry recently released an article explaining the advantages of family dentistry over corporate dentistry.

The article highlights several important differences between corporate dentistry offices and family dentistry services.

Our friendly staff and our comfortable, inviting clinic, reflect our beliefs about dentistry—the patient and the provision of exceptional dental care always come first.

“It’s difficult for corporations, that have a primary goal of making money, to be aligned with the health care goals we feel should be paramount in a dental practice,” says Mukilteo Family Dentistry in their recently released article in which they encourage patients to choose a family dentistry provider.

The article highlights several important differences between corporate dentistry offices and family dentistry services. Firstly, Mukilteo Family Dentistry explains that corporations often pay their dentists with a productivity compensation model. The more procedures the dentist performs, the more money they make, causing them to often recommend procedures that would be deemed unnecessary by a more conservative dentist.

“Because of the monetary motivation that pressures corporate dentists to increase volume of services, operative procedures are too commonly chosen instead of preventive procedures,” the article explains.

Mukilteo Family Dentistry emphasizes the fact that they are dedicated to preventative procedures that can reverse or avoid dental problems before the condition requires an extensive dental procedure.

The article mentions another drawback to corporate dental care, namely, the impersonal nature of dental visits. Because of the sheer number of patients that are funneled through a corporate dental office, many patients often see a different doctor each visit. Because many patients are apprehensive about dental work, its important for the same doctor to see the same patients and develop a trusting relationship.

Not only that, but the article also emphasizes that its important for the dentist to be familiar with the patient’s case, which will enable the doctor to recommend the best procedures for their needs.

The article concludes, saying, “Our friendly staff and our comfortable, inviting clinic, reflect our beliefs about dentistry—the patient and the provision of exceptional dental care always come first.”
