Dr. Trent Wilkinson and the Team at Wilkinson Dental Honored with eAssist Top Practice Award
Springfield MO, May 2021 – Dr. Trent Wilkinson and the Team at Wilkinson Dental are eAssist’s most recent recipients of the Top Practice Award. This honor is awarded each month to two exceptional eAssist clients who embody the values of integrity, expertise and grace, while providing exemplary patient care, running efficient operations, and giving back to their communities. Presented to the practice as a whole, the award recognizes the need for a cohesive unit to run a practice to the highest standards.
A native of central Illinois, Dr. Trent Wilkinson moved to Springfield, Missouri after graduating from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in 1998. For more than two decades he and his team – by now comprising two doctors and seven team members – have been bringing his practice philosophy to life: “I’ve always felt that people should be able to relax when they come to the dentist. We believe in taking time to discuss all options with a patient, allowing them to make decisions in full confidence that we can provide gentle dental care that is functional, feels good, and looks great,” explained Dr. Wilkinson.
Their website invites patients to “come experience our version of dentistry!” and promises a dental experience unlike any other. New patients are taken on a personalized office tour and learn the patient benefits of the state-of-the-art office and technology; seated in a private consultation room to complete paperwork, review health history, and discuss what they value and want from their dental treatment; and made comfortable with amenities like complimentary juice and water, WiFi, Netflix, chapstick, sunglasses, headphones and a warm blanket.
Dr. Wilkinson knows it takes a great team to deliver a great patient experience, provide excellent care, develop long-lasting relationships with patients and their families, and positively impact the community. To attract and retain the best talent possible, he commits to candidates that “In joining the Wilkinson Dental team, you’ll have the opportunity to work in an empowering, positive, fast-paced environment alongside driven team members who share your same goals and vision for success.” Their culture of patient-focused service is built on collaboration; professional and personal training, development and mentorship; work/life balance; community involvement; and extensive employment benefits.
The entire team at Wilkinson Dental is proud to live in the Springfield area and help those less fortunate in the community. They regularly give back through various charities and organizations, such as: Dentistry from the Heart, Missouri Mission of Mercy, Strides Against Breast Cancer, and Operation Gratitude to support overseas troops. In addition, their own creative initiatives have included a $10,000 Smile Give-away; “20 Acts of Kindness” to commemorate Dr. Wilkinson’s 20th year practicing dentistry in the area; and quarterly drawings to thank patients for referrals. They have been featured on the local Ozarks Live TV program numerous times in acknowledgement of their generosity.
