The Team Approach
The vast resources of Cleveland Clinic provide us access to advanced twenty-first century technology not available to most private offices because of cost. But the true secret to our success is our effective use of our team. With access to multiple dental, surgical, and medical specialties, our patients have only to walk down the hall for a specialty consultation as opposed to traveling to another office across the city or state.
Because of its national and international prominence, Cleveland Clinic attracts exceptional professionals from all over the country and around the world and for whom financial compensation is of less importance than in private practice. Since Cleveland Clinic physicians and dentists are salaried, there is no financial motivation to order any but the most relevant tests or to make unnecessary referrals.
While Cleveland Clinic dentists treat routine dental patients daily, they also handle more complex medical and dental issues.
For example, we see patients who are anticipating or have had certain medical treatments, such as radiation treatment involving the head and neck, or cardiac valve surgical procedures, that require special dental screening and possible treatment.
Our dentists work closely with our medical and surgical teams to provide the best overall outcome for the more complicated issues our patients may face.
