Dr. Khan understands that open communication is the key to a successful patient-dentist relationship. She strives to keep her patients well-informed about their dental health and how they can best care for their teeth at home. As part of the dialogue, Dr. Khan initiates with her patients, she helps them to understand the connection between oral health and overall body health, knowing that the better informed the patient, the more proactive they are in taking care of their mouths and their bodies.
Dr. Khan knows that it is essential for her to keep abreast of new research and technologies in the ever-evolving field of dentistry, so she seeks out continuing education offerings.
