One of our followers recently messaged us “how do I know if I’m on the right track as a patient?”
Well, the answer is easy: go to the www.smilementor.com and you will quickly find out. We have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on this website, the patient handbook and this entire documentary project for you guys. That’s what is so cool about The Smile Mentor, we provide you with an entire road map based on typical All-On-X appointment schedules. We start at the initial consultation all the way through the final delivery and then the checkups after. And all of the appointments in between, and there are a bunch of them! So, back to the question: “How do I know if I’m on the right track?”
We have given you the map now for the second part of this question, you have the map now “who will guide me?” Well, the Smile Mentor would like to help you go through this process, but there should also be somebody at the clinic, preferably the doctor and/or a patient advocate that’s willing and able to help you walk through this process. They are there to educate, inform and encourage you. This is a marathon, not a one and done procedure, and if anyone says that it is –run for that door. For instance, if you were to look at all the appointments I went through on my All-On-X journey, and how much time I invested along with that of the clinicians and their teams you would see hundreds of hours and more than a dozen appointments.
I don’t say this to make it seem daunting but I think it is very important to view this realistically. That way, you have a game plan going into this process. One of the questions you need to ask from day one is: “what is the game plan, and will I have a detailed road map to go by when it comes to this surgery?” This is highly invasive and serious stuff, it’s your smile, your overall health we are talking about. If you’ve already had your case completed, join the smile mentor community, share your experience, go to thesmilementor.com and give others encouragement and support. If you’re in the middle of your dental implant journey go to our community, fill out a page, and ask questions.
Share your case and what you’ve learned with others. We built that whole back end for you guys to be able to share with other patients traveling the same road as you. You can share what clinic are you going to and which practices or practioner to avoid. This puts the patient in the control seat and let me tell you there is strength in numbers!
