The trust that the patient now has in Dr. Allman is an asset to their experience.

The patient now believes what else Dr. Allman may say in regards to other concerns about their oral health that the patient was not aware existed, and listens to Dr. Allman in these additional matters. The patient also knows that Dr. Allman has his or her best interests in mind as the #1 item of any plan.
Finally, truth comes into focus. Truth is the treatment plan that satisfies the patient’s needs and wants at that moment in time, as well as the clinical conditions Dr. Allman has uncovered through the process of his complete examination with the very best course of action. If needed, an alternative plan or phased plans can be developed. In every instance, the treatment plan will always have a constant of high quality; the only variable will be time. At the very least, the patient knows the truth about the state of his or her oral health and function and trusts Dr. Allman to address any of these concerns in the best way possible.
