There are many fine young dentists in practice around the world. However it is important these young dentists have access to older. more clinically-experienced dentists within the practice. Absentee dental practice owners, or “back office” dentists who really don’t practice dentistry, should be a concern.
Hi this is Dr. Jeff Dorfman at The Center for Special Dentistry in New York talking about 12 ways people can differentiate between good and bad dentists and good and bad dentistry. There are many fine young dentists practicing in the US and elsewhere around the world, but an important thing for a young dentist is to have mentorship so they can improve their skills and they have somebody they can ask questions to when needed. Unfortunately in many practices, particularly high volume practices, there can be absentee dentist owners who really are disinterested in the dentistry and are really only concerned with the accounts receivable. If you are seeing a young dentist, it is important to be seeing a young dentist in a practice where there are older, more experienced dentists who can give advice and lend a hand when needed so that you can get the best dentistry possible wherever you go.
