Bonita Springs General Dentist On Clearing Up Conversation

Patient education is a crucial pillar of the work performed by your Bonita Springs general dentist Dr. Dainiak. We make sure to spend enough time with every patient discussing their treatment and why it is being done that way, as well as what can be done to keep them healthy outside of our office walls.


Unfortunately, sometimes specific technical medical terms may be used in these conversations…as they are a just common place to dental professionals. We will never use terms you do not know to confuse you or keep you in the dark…it is just a phenomenon of practicing a specialty so long. For example, you may be a professional musician and use the terms “mezzo forte” and “syncopation” on a daily basis…where we may use terms like “edentulous” in office too. The result of both conversations can be confusion- which is never desired.


If we ever happen to use a term you are unfamiliar with directly, or it is overheard in office, please feel free to ask us about it! We know that not every patient may not be completely comfortable with inquiring about these types of situations, though. For that very reason, we have provided the following website for you to catch up on your dental terminology at your own leisure: Click Here for More.


Whether you know the difference between “occlusal” and “occlusion” may not matter much in your day to day. Knowing that you should keep regularly scheduled appointments with your Bonita Springs general dentist, however, THAT is something to know and hold onto!
