Depending on the complexity of their problem, we've got different degrees of workup. If they're interested in just general dentistry, that's the standard workup. If they're interested in trickier things, then we have to do a more involved workup: orthodontic, crown, or bridge. In our particular community, people aren't typically coming in saying, “Hey, I want laminates,““I want veneers,““I want exquisite reconstructive dentistry.“ I would say, almost never. They're usually coming in the product of a super confused piecemeal approach by other dentists, which is unfortunate, but that's a lot of healthcare that's handling people's problems. It set up the old 80/20 rule where 80% our medical dollar's spent in the last 20% of our life.
That very much applies to dental: that most of our dental fixes are patches, repair, duct tape, glue, scotch tape, patch people together and then they have end-loaded root canal, crowns, and all kinds of complicated needs from just piecemeal, low intimacy kind of interactions with dentists that are working the Henry Ford model of Midas muffler care. It's how that person handles you as a person, the getting the balance right between telling you about the furnace and handling you as a person. That's the point.
