Teresa Richmond, Treatment Coordinator at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design.
Responsibilities & title at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design? Treatment Coordinator ~ Treatment coordinators work in offices assisting patients with treatment plans but also have many other responsibilities. They may handle health insurance, financial issues and scheduling.
Why did you get into the dental industry? I was introduced to dentistry by a very close friend who was a hygienist and my career in the Dental Field exploded from that experience.
What advice do you have for patients who have dental phobias? Establish a healthy relationship with your dental provider beforehand , explain to your dental provider your concerns and ask questions.
Besides “Brush & floss daily” what is your favorite oral health care tip? Consider using an electric or battery-operated toothbrush, which can reduce plaque and a mild form of gum disease (gingivitis) more than does manual brushing.
Where did you grow up? Durango / Bayfield , Colorado
What do you want to say to your future patients? Every tooth in a man’s head is more valuable than a diamond. ~Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote, 1605
