The Story of PRECiDENT : Collaboration Sets Us Apart
by Dr. Scott Bolding | June. 29, 2021
How Did PRECiDENT Center for Facial and Dental Medicine Begin?As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon working with many colleagues, both on the medical and dental side, Dr. Bolding learned early on in his career that the most effective way to treat patients is to take a team approach. Throughout his career, Dr. Bolding tried to take this collaborative approach to provide the best care possible for his patients. However, a collaborative approach was often difficult in individual practices.With the help of some colleagues, Dr. Bolding worked to create a multi-specialty dental center, where they would bring the best specialists across every discipline of dentistry together to care for patients.
Collaborative Dental Care
PRECiDENT began with a vision very similar to the model of the Cleveland Clinic or the Mayo Clinic. Part of what makes the Mayo Clinic work so well is how they have been able to bring specialists from multiple disciplines under one roof. They have repeatedly proven how a collaborative, teamwork approach is the only way to provide the best care for patients. At the Mayo Clinic, everyone is on the same team and working toward the same goal. And the result is unmatched patient care.
That’s exactly what we are doing at PRECiDENT. Our team is made up of specialists across all areas of dentistry that have come together under one roof. We work together to provide a different level of care for our patients. This collaborative model presents several advantages and makes the PRECiDENT experience different.

Our collaborative approach is what makes us different. It allows us to deal with complex issues that many of our patients have been dealing with their whole lives. Working with the best minds in dentistry all under one roof also allows us to create a better experience for our patients.

Dealing with Complex Issues
By working together as a team of specialists, we are better prepared to deal with complex issues. We often have patients referred to us by their primary care dentist or physician. These patients are usually dealing with lifelong dental problems that can be difficult to treat. Many of the issues we treat have multiple layers to deal with. Therefore, we need more than one specialist in order to provide solutions that actually work.
Because each specialist is an expert in their field, together, we are able to unravel each piece of the puzzle and provide a comprehensive treatment plan that will help our patients move forward into a new chapter of their lives. Together, we are able to do more than just treat symptoms. We are not satisfied with simply providing temporary relief from TMJ pain or sleep apnea when there are other treatment options available. Since we have a whole team behind us, we are not afraid to tackle these difficult problems together and help you find the right solution.
Collaboration Creates a Better Patient Experience
In more fractured models of healthcare, patients have to drive all over town to get the care they need. And those individual specialists may not always communicate with each other well. This can make it hard for patients to get what they need in a timely manner.
By taking a collaborative approach, however, we are able to get our patients the care they need, quickly. All our specialists are under one roof, so you don’t have to wait for one dentist to contact another before transferring you to their office nor do you have to waste time driving around town to get to that separate appointment.
Patients also get the experience of a whole team of experts gathered together to support their dental and maxillofacial needs. Our collaborative model allows us to focus on you and your needs more than we could if we were all working separately. Your dental team becomes a safety net, and you can rest knowing that we are all on your side.
Collaboration Makes PRECiDENT Different
At PRECiDENT, we are very proud of the teams we have assembled in Arkansas, Florida, and New Jersey. Our specialists are what makes our system work. Each one is a team player with the goal of providing the best care for every patient who walks through our doors. Our collaborative approach that makes PRECiDENT so unique is the secret to our success. We know that if we work together, we can bring you the best care possible and help you unravel your lifelong dental issues so you can start moving forward.
