Finding the Right Dentist for You

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Don’t wait to look for a dentist until an emergency forces you to do so. Choosing one before you have a serious need may save you pain, money, and stress. Whether you’re moving to a new area or just want to find a new dentist, these suggestions can help you find a dentist you are comfortable with and best meets your dental needs.

Where do I start?
Ask family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors for their recommendations. If you’re moving, your current dentist may be able to suggest one. You can also look at online dentist directories for a list of dentists in your area.

What’s the office like?
Find out the office location, hours, and availability of appointment times. Ask how long the practice has been in operation, and what type of emergency care is offered. When you visit the office, look for cleanliness and a courteous, friendly staff. Also ask about patient comforts like pre-medication, and amenities such as music or movies.

Is the dentist qualified?
Inquire about the dentist’s education and experience, and whether the dentist pursues continuing training in the latest technology and innovations. If there are specific procedures that you’re interested in, find out if the dentist performs those or refers patients to other specialists. Also note whether the dentist is a member of a state or national dental society.

What about costs?
If you have dental insurance, confirm that the dentist is covered by your policy. Ask how they handle insurance claims in order to avoid billing hassles. No matter whether you’re paying out-of-pocket or using insurance, determine dental costs up front so there won’t be any big surprises.
