Tips for Choosing a New Dentist

4 Things to Think About When Selecting a New Dentist

You may be new to the area, looking to change your smile for the better, or dissatisfied with your current dental care provider. Whatever your reasons are for finding a new dentist, there are a few things to remember on your quest to find a great dentist:

1.Your doctor can help. One of the benefits of having a primary care doctor is that they can point you to other trustworthy medical professionals in your healthcare network. Before selecting a new dentist or starting your search, be sure to ask your primary care physician about their top recommendations.

2.Check with your local dental society. This can give you a list to work from and help you ensure you only visit legitimate, officially recognized dental care providers.

3.Recommendations are key. If you have a friend, family member, or co-worker who loves their dentist, check them out! Make sure you don’t select a dentist solely based on word-of-mouth recommendations, but trying out a highly recommended dentist can save you a lot of time and energy by putting you in touch with a high-quality care provider right away.

4.You won’t know until you go. All the right components may be in place in terms of insurance, location, services, etc., but the caliber of customer service provided at a given dental office is often what makes it or breaks it for prospective patients. Try scheduling consultations at a few different offices and comparing the friendliness of the staff and the way they receive you.
