About Christopher Collins' dental care philosophy
The man behind Grace Street's most trusted comprehensive dental care clinic is Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry (DMD), Christopher Collins. Dr. Collins is known among his patients and their families for his profound knowledge, expert skills, and warm, friendly disposition.
Under Dr. Collins' stewardship, we provide comprehensive dental care at the clinic with ONE goal – to provide you with all the help, advice, and dental care you will need to enjoy healthy teeth, a beautiful smile, and sound oral health throughout your life.
You are an integral part of our dental care philosophy, and we make sure to involve you in each step of the comprehensive dental care you receive here with Christopher Collins DMD. This means answering your questions, resolving your doubts, addressing your fears, and taking your opinion into consideration before proceeding with any dental care or treatment option.
What to expect from your first visit.
During the first visit, your comprehensive dental care experts at the clinic of Christopher Collins DMD will focus on two things:
1. Getting to know you better – The doctor will review your medical and dental history and talk to you about your diet, exercise, and lifestyle in general to understand the base aspects of your oral health. This knowledge will help the dentist tailor comprehensive dental care suited to your individual oral health and lifestyle. You may be asked to fill out some forms at the time of new patient registration as well, allowing us to get to know you even better.
2. Addressing your current need of prompt dental care – The dentist will also see to it that your current dental care needs are met promptly upon your first visit. We schedule appointments astutely to reduce wait times and promote maximum face time with our dental care experts.
3. Feel free to talk to the doctor at any moment during the visit. We, in fact, encourage communication and invite you to ask all the questions you may have about the clinic, about the dentist, about your dental health, about the dental care we plan to provide you, and more!
We look forward to your first appointment. Haven't scheduled one? Don't waste time when it comes to taking care of your teeth and mouth. Call 864-229-4813 to book your first appointment today!
