Moving to a new city means going back to square one. For many, this means having to find or settle in a place you can call home, figuring out means of transportation, adjusting to local environment, and hunting for a new primary physician and dentist. But what if life takes you to a new destination after you or a family member begins orthodontic treatment? Finding the right doctor in Beijing can be a tiresome task as you want to make sure someone takes care of all the stuff going on in your mouth.
Ting bu dong
The idea of Beijing can be very overwhelming. And the language barrier is mostly, if not always, an expat’s concern. The team at IDC Dental boasts communication as one of its major strengths.
Chief Doctor and CEO Dr. Jaclyn Dam-Laute for one speaks fluent English, conversational Mandarin and Vietnamese. Other doctors of IDC Dental speak Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese.
The team is not only multilingual, but internationally trained as well. This means there is no doubt that what you say will be heard and understood completely as IDC Dental aims to provide specialized care to each patient.
All About You
It is essential that your doctor knows everything about your medical and dental history. Make sure that you have these documents available to ensure personalized quality care. Your chosen dentist may also want to discuss your dental history with your previous one. It is worth noting that IDC Dental is happy to communicate with your former dentist. And while patients are assured efficient dental care, IDC Dental also takes pride in providing a more caring and compassionate environment.
China and the Modern World
It’s all about the technology now. And for sure, an expat would want his or her dental clinic equipped with high tech practice. IDC Dental has got you covered in that area too. In 2010, IDC Dental achieved certification to become the first Progressive Orthodontics Clinic in China. Since then, it has aimed to be the first to bring modern western orthodontics to Beijing.
Of course, you’d want to get the best out of your Beijing life. And, the struggles are real especially for those who have braces — from wanting to try all that tasty and authentic Chinese food, to trying to socialize with awkward smiles and that noticeable lisp. Thankfully, you now have the option to up your game in Beijing. Ever heard of invisible braces?
IDC Dental is among the first in China to be certified as an Invisalign Provider. This system utilizes the latest computerized technology and three-dimensional modeling to generate a series of clear and see-through aligners. IDC Dental also has the most extensive set-up for Damon system braces, which are self-ligating appliances that do not involve elastic or metal wires.
