Choosing the best dental services: Five tips to get great care

Choosing the best dental services can be tricky. How do you know if you are going to click with a dentist and his or her staff when you schedule an appointment?

If you are in the market for dental services, you might be asking yourself: How do I get great care? How do I know if a dental office is right for me? How do I find a great dentist?!

Getting great dental services, however, doesn’t have to be difficult or stressful. If you are looking for a new dentist, here are five tips to get great care. Read on:

Ask around

If you have a trusted friend or family member with great teeth, chances are they have a great dentist. So, don’t be shy about asking around for great dental care! Word-of-mouth is a great way to find a great dentist.

Read reviews

Many dental offices are online nowadays and our patients love giving their feedback! Sites like Facebook and Yelp are a good start; read several reviews (good and not so good) and look for things like a response from the office and an attempt to resolve the issue. It’s not all about glowing reviews; it’s also about an office that seems to care about patients and patient satisfaction.

Insurance

You can find a great dentist but then discover he or she doesn’t take your insurance. That’s a bummer. Do some legwork to find out if the dentists on your list take your insurance, or at least offer flexible payment plans.

Hours and location

There’s no point in finding a great dentist who is miles and miles away, or who doesn’t offer evening and weekend appointments (if you need them). Most dentists put their hours on their website, so check there before calling for an appointment. You’re more likely to make (and keep) appointments if it isn’t inconvenient.

Schedule a visit

One of the best ways to know if you are going to click with a dentist is to meet him or her in person. So, schedule a visit or cleaning to meet the dentist and staff. Check the office. Is it clean? Orderly? Running on time? You’ll know if it’s a good fit.
