What to Look For in a New Dentist
Are you looking for a new dentist ? If you are, you’ve probably asked your friends to see who they use, checked your insurance plan, or even looked online. But how can you narrow down your choices to find the dentist that is the best fit for you? Here are 5 things to look for:
The Services You Need
Do you plan on having certain types of procedures done – such as dental implants, braces, or veneers? Not every dentist offers those, so be sure to ask before scheduling an appointment.
Flexible Appointment Times
If you have a busy schedule and tight time constraints, traditional appointment times may not be an option for you. Flexible office hours or Saturday appointments may be the only way you are able to see the dentist, so be sure to ask about appointment availability.
Whether or not you carry dental insurance, you may find that unexpected expenses pop up from time to time. Ask your dentist what types of financing plans are available, especially for more complex treatments like dental implants or smile makeovers.
Family Friendly Atmosphere
Do you plan on making appointments for your children in the same office? A comprehensive dental provider serves patients of all ages. That way you don’t have to see one dentist and take your children somewhere else.
The last thing you want from a dental office is a place where you feel like a number. You need a dental team that connects with you personally. One of the ways you can do this is choosing a dentist who “co-plans” your treatment right along with you. That way you are involved in your own process of care!
