There are many reasons why you might be looking for a new dentist. Maybe you “inherited” your dentist from your parents and are ready to make a change. Or, you may have relocated and need to find a new dental home.
Whatever the reason, you need to do a little research before you decide on the best dentist for your family. There are a lot of things to take into account, and here are a few things you should consider before you make your decision.
Location, Location, Location
Your schedule is busy, and you are a lot more likely to follow through with routine appointments if you don’t have to drive out of your way to see your dentist. Finding a dentist who is located conveniently to your business or your child’s school makes it easier to keep appointments that are needed to protect your oral health.
You should also look for a practice whose hours mesh with your schedule, not theirs. An office that offers late evening or Saturday appointments makes keeping up with your family’s dental care much less stressful.
First Impressions Matter
Schedule an appointment for a visit, and pay attention to how you feel the first time you walk into the reception area. Is this office clean and modern? Are you greeted right away? Does the office environment put you at ease?
When you meet with the dentist, do they patiently answer your questions? It can take a bit of time to develop a relationship, but you can tell a lot from these first interactions.
