What Makes A Good Blog

A good dentist blog is supposed to do three things. First, it should give you good information that will help you to prevent situations from occurring that would require a dentist to take corrective measures. As one of the city of Troy`s well trusted General Dentist, Dr. Kelley lives by the idea that preventative care can help his patients to live a life that is free from oral health problems. If you never had to come in with a problem ever again, and only came in for your bi-annual checkups and cleanings, that would be a job well done. We focus on this idea in the clinic when you are here, and also translate that philosophy to our blog.

Are All Blogs In Technical Terms?

The second thing we want to do is provide you with information that is easy to understand and not confusing. We understand that as dental professionals, it is very easy to speak in technical terms, but this is not what most of our patients are looking for. The internet is full of websites that want to give you all kinds of information. Today you can search for, and find, information on everything from teeth whitening to why you have a dull toothache. This mass quantity of data can be overwhelming to some patients who get more confused by the research. We want to be clear and concise so that when you do have an issue you know that it is time to call for a dentist appointment. Finally, our blog is designed to be a conversation starter. In other words, we hope that you will come see us in person for a customized diagnosis and treatment plan.
