If you have recently relocated and need a new family dentist or you are just interested in making a change, there are a few things you should keep in mind.
Evaluate Your Family’s Needs
Our dental needs change throughout life, and you may have little children or a senior parent, both of whom have specific requirements. For instance, do you think your child might need braces? Are you or your parent struggling with age-related dental wear and tooth loss? You’ll want to look for a dentist who has the skill and knowledge in these areas so you can be confident that you receive the highest quality of care.
Plan to Interview a Few Dentists
Dentistry is such a personal thing that it’s crucial to find a professional with whom you connect. Trust is a significant part of any professional relationship and especially in dentistry because you want to feel comfortable enough to call for an appointment when there's a problem.
During your interviews, remember good first impressions are crucial. When you arrive at the office, do you get a sense of a positive, happy environment? When you meet the dentist, do you feel that you have their undivided attention or do they seem distracted?
Ask for details about services that interest you. If you think you need a dental implant, ask the dentist about their success with the procedure and if they have before and after pictures they can share.
Many dental offices are adding new technology that streamlines treatment and improves comfort. Ask the dentist to explain which technology they use and how it can benefit you.
