“Why do I have to go to a specialist for this? Can’t you do that here?”
The short answer is yes. As a general dentist, I can do specialized procedures here. But there are reasons why it is in your best interest for me to refer you to a specialist.
- Specialists have years of additional training in their particular field, leading to greater expertise, especially in complicated cases.
- Your time is valuable. Specialists are generally able to complete a procedure more quickly than a general dentist. We are fortunate to have several fine specialists right here in the Illinois Valley.
