Choosing a Great Dentist vs a Good One
Are you looking for a new dentist for your family because you recently relocated or are simply interested in making a change? If so, prepare yourself to do a little research. You can best achieve optimal oral health when there is a familiar, skilled professional who you feel comfortable turning to with your questions and concerns.
Schedule Some "Interviews"
There are many highly-qualified professionals you can turn to, but what do you look for beyond that? The qualities that make a great dentist differ from one person to the next. This is why you need to develop your own specific list of what’s most important to you and your family. Then plan some visits to offices that come close to fitting your needs. As you do, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Location: This can be a little tricky because you might not mind driving a little farther to visit the absolute right dentist for your family. But in general, keep in mind that if your schedule is already packed to the limit, finding a dentist close to your home and your children’s schools increase the odds that you will keep your scheduled appointments.
- Personality: Let’s face it, when it comes down to it, you want a dentist who can relate to your needs. When you visit, does this professional take time to put you at ease or do you feel rushed? First impressions matter, so pay attention to the vibe they are giving off during your visit.
- Technology: There have been some pretty amazing advances in technology, all designed to make your dental care more comfortable, efficient, and stress-free. Ask the prospective dentist what types they offer and how they streamline your visits.
