1) Who will do the majority of the treatment? Will it be the dentist, a hygienist, or an assistant?
Depending on the treatment you are having, you may see a registered dental hygienist, Dr Parlett or Dr Matsui. All dental treatments are performed by the Drs’ or the dental hygienists within their scope of practice. Dental procedures under sedation are performed by Dr Parlett.
Dr. Parlett or Dr. Matsui will be the ones to explain your treatment plan and answer your questions. My entire team is committed to patient education.
It is our goal to provide you with all the information necessary to make the best choices for your dental health now and in the future.
2) How much time will the doctor spend with me at each visit?
As much time as necessary to do the work and answer your questions. This might seem like an obvious answer, but many corporate practices have a maximum amount of time that the doctor can spend with each patient (some as little as 2 minutes!).
3) What is a typical wait time in your waiting room?
We know that your time is precious, and that you have other things to do in your day. Our policy is to run on time and not keep patients waiting.
We promise to respect your time and also expect that you will respect ours.
4) How easy is it to get an appointment?
We are open Monday to Friday and are centrally located in Bracebridge. We do our best to schedule most of your appointments at times that are convenient for the patient and our policy for emergencies is that they are seen the day they called into the practice.
5) What continuing education have you done, and are you using the best technologies for my treatment?
Dr. Parlett does more than 200 hrs of continuing education per year, he lectures Internationally and teaches at the post graduate level at the University of Vienna. This has enabled him to keep very current, integrating new technologies as they emerge with evidence based science to support their integration into the practice.
“New is not always better”
I am very excited about the integration of a CT scanner into the practice this year. We have made a major investment in this new technology to radically improve imaging and diagnosis as well as reducing radiation to 1/3 of its current level.
