New patients of Glendale dentist Dr. Robert Thein continue to be surprised with how much he cares. It seems to some like an old-fashioned virtue that they don’t expect these days. But it’s something that he believes in deeply and he goes to extraordinary lengths to achieve it.
It’s manifested in several ways. Let’s explain.
His Focus on Your Comfort
Dr. Thein most of all wants you to feel comfortable from the moment you walk into his office until you are done with treatment. To do this, he has first created a warm and caring environment where you will feel free to ask any questions and share any concerns.
He particularly wants to know if you are anxious about dental treatment. “Don’t worry about that,” he reassures you. “A lot of patients are anxious. We’ve worked with patients like you before. We want to help you.” So that there is no obstacle to your comfort, he makes the unusual provision of free oral conscious sedation. With a pill taken the night before and another right before your appointment, you may not even remember anything until you wake up with everything fixed.

Getting It Done Right
Dr. Thein also cares about your budget, and he knows that the most satisfying road to affordable dental care is to place work that won’t need to be redone – that lasts and lasts. You’ll notice his intensity and his seriousness about his work. He is constantly taking courses, staying abreast of the latest in dentistry. You’ll be able to tell he knows what he is talking about. He is determined to know as much as possible about everything he does.
A Glendale Dentist Who Cares about You Personally
You’ll notice, when you walk into the office for your first appointment, that you’re the only patient scheduled for your time. Dr. Thein will devote his full attention to you while you are here. He’ll take time to get to know you personally and learn about your needs, preferences, fears, past experiences, budget, and anything else that may impact your care.
His Honesty with You
His objective is to get you healthy. Often in dentistry, there are various options for solving complex problems. For example, in replacing teeth, it is clear that dental implants would give you the most comfortable result. But that may be out of your budget range. If that’s the case, he will suggest bridgework or maybe a removable partial denture which could save you multiple thousands of dollars. Or there may be parts of your treatment that could wait a year or two, thus spreading our your payments. He will work with you to make it affordable if you’re sincere in wanting improvement.
A Dentist Who Cares After Your Treatment Is Completed
And then he wants your dental treatment to be comfortable after you have left his office.
His patients are continually surprised by his post-operative phone calls. After every significant appointment, you will get a phone call from him asking how you are doing. Cindy, his office manager, reports: “Every day,” she said, “every day, he never forgets to follow up. Where there is post-operative discomfort, he can often help and will do so.”
Caring in Action Illustrated
An excellent way to illustrate Dr. Thein’s caring would be to read a case story of one of his patients. Susan came to him with multiple problems, including a collapsed bite, ugly smile, and TMJ pain. Dr. Thein, in his warm, compassionate way, and with the expertise that comes from years of training and experience, solved each problem. Read Susan’s Story.
