bedside manner awardPlease join us in congratulating Dr. Marci Guthrie for being honored with an award for  “Best Bedside Manner” from OurHealth Richmond Magazine! For the past 6 years, OurHealth Richmond has polled the public for local medical providers that have the best bedside manner, and James River Family Dentistry has been recognized in the Dental category.

The Best Bedside Manner Award is earned by medical providers that have made an impression of excellence on their patients.  It is voted on solely by patients, not by other medical providers, and is a rating system where patients share their personal experiences with nominated doctors.  The Best Bedside Manner award is earned by medical providers who blend outstanding care with compassion and empathy within their field.

Over 30,000 local residents voted for more than 405 medical providers in over 81 specialties.  Local residents answered the call to nominate and vote in March, and have chosen Dr. Guthrie as having excellence in dental care.

Many times, people attend doctor’s appointments with anxiety about their diagnosis, or unease about what they will be told they need to do.  Dr. Guthrie understands that dental anxiety can keep patients from attending their appointments, which will later affect their overall health.  She has created a comfortable, calm environment for her patients that even includes a therapy dog in-training for those who need the extra calming influence.
