My philosophy in dentistry is: an informed patient is a happy patient.— Dr Martin Claassen, DentalWize practice
He says that the DentalWize practice also has the latest technology that allows patients to be apart of their own oral procedures.
With 13 years of experience, Dr Claassen says communication is vital, in addition to a caring heart and passion for the profession.
Listen to the full conversation:
Dr Claassen likes to talk things through before getting started with each patient...
He then let's patients kick back in the chair, making sure they're calm and relaxed...
"You overcome the fear by becoming aware of what's going on."
"I'm a very caring person for lots of my patients."
"Dentistry is an art, but just on a miniature scale."
And with his magic touch, another happy client can show off their pearly whites...
