In maintaining our oral (and overall) health, finding the right dentist is important. It is not, however, easy. As with nearly every decision in our lives, we must consider many factors: our specific needs, our comfort level, and our budget. Follow these tips to find the perfect dentist for you.
Use Word of Mouth:
We use recommendations from colleagues, friends, and family members for all sorts of things -
Surf the Web:
The internet is a great source for just about anything you're looking for -
Special Dental Needs:
Of course, all of us need to consider our own personal dental needs and find a dentist to cater to that. Any dentist can perform cleanings and exams, but those of us who need extra attention, or attention paid to specific areas or issues, need to find personalized dental services. For example, if you need a root canal, search for endodontic dentists. If you're looking to make cosmetic tweaks (whitening, for example), look for dentists who specialize in that.
Check Your Dental Plan :
Try Them Out! Consider using a new dentist for your exam and cleaning. (In fact, some will offer free or discounted exam/cleaning work to attract new patients.) This gives you a chance to observe the dentist in his or her element: working on patients!
