How To Find A Good Dentist

Finding a good, qualified dental office for yourself and family can often be very stressful, much like searching for a needle in a haystack. Whether you have relocated, had a change in dental insurance coverage, or just want to find a dental office that is closer to your home or office, these tips will help make choosing a dentist easier to accomplish.
Keep in mind that you are essentially hiring someone else to do a job for you, providing qualified and skillful treatment of your dental needs and those of your family. Carefully consider and write down the various things that are most important to you as a prospective patient, as this will help narrow down the choices of dentists you may decide to try.
  • Location of the dental office in proximity to your home or office is an important factor to consider, as you may not want to have to drive many miles away for dental appointments. This can be especially true if there is ever a need for a specialist such as a Pediatric dentist or Orthodontist, since there are usually frequent return visits throughout the duration of treatment for braces.
  • Availability of office hours that meet your specific needs, such as the possible need for weekend or evening hours, due to work or family obligations. Sometimes dental emergencies arise at the most inopportune times, so you will need to know how such emergencies are handled with the dental office you choose.
  • Handling of dental insurance claims or payment varies with each dental office. While some dental offices will gladly file the claim with your insurance company for payment, other dental offices require payment upfront and patients must file their own dental claims for reimbursement. If you are without dental insurance coverage, it may be important for you to know if the dental office accepts credit card payments or offers any payment plans.
  • A personable and professional office that is not only clean and well-kept, keeping up with current laws and regulations regarding sterilization of instruments, wearing face masks and gloves during treatment, but that also carefully explains preventive measures and treatments to your satisfaction.
Talk with friends, family members, co-workers and neighbors for dentist recommendations, remembering to ask questions to best determine if the suggested dentists fit the specific needs you have in choosing a dentist. If you are relocating, ask your current dentist for any possible recommendations of dentists he or she may know of in the area where you will be living.
The American Dental Association’s list of members is a compilation of highly skilled, qualified dentists that have agreed in writing to adhere to high ethical standards of conduct. The ADA represents the great majority of dentists, since seven out of ten dentists are members of the ADA, being an effective advocate for the dental profession and patients alike.
