The Zak Dental 360 Degree Quality Control Method:
We don’t just talk the talk…We walk the walk when it comes to Quality Assurance!!!
- At Dr. Zak Long Beach Dental Care, our Wellness Doctor is there to understand your unique oral health needs, objectives, and budget. Once those needs and objectives are discovered, our Wellness Doctor creates a customized treatment plan that is unique to you. Based on your needs, the Wellness Doctor helps build a clinical team and possible specialists to execute the agreed upon family dental plans.
- To confirm the accuracy of your diagnosis, there is always more than one provider working on your treatment plan.
- We have a team-based approach to dental care because in nearly thirty years of practice, Dr. Zak has never met a true “Master of All Trades” dentist. That is why we have paired up with a team of specialists that include: periodontists, endodontists, prosthodontists, oral surgeons, and orthodontists to support our general team and step in for more complex procedures.
- Our 360-degree quality control protocol ensures that any treatment small or large gets checked off by your specialist and Wellness Doctor before it is considered completed.
Dr. Zak Dental Care has been serving the Long Beach community since 1978.
