Find A Good Dentist

19.11.2011

Surprisingly, there is a lot to look for when searching for a new dentist. As with most aspects of health care, people only look for a new dentist when moving, if our old one stops working, or if we have a bad experience with the dentist we currently use. The first step in selecting a dentist is to search for dental services in your area either close to your home or business. Because oral care is so important,there is usually a variety of dental schools and dental services available in any given area. A search for dentists in my area, for example, provides me the following list:

American Fork Dentist
Dentist American Fork
West Jordan Dentists
Dentists West Jordan
West Jordan Wisdom Teeth
West Jordan Family

Any number of these local dentists will likely provide me the service I need. But as with many health related services, there is much, much more to consider when selecting a dentist.

First and foremost, it is always a good idea to do some research and be completely sure your dentist and their practice are licensed and certified. Oral care is just too important to be left to unqualified or untrained hands! All dental schools and dentist services are required to have their workers be schooled and tested in oral health so there should not be major concerns on this detail. If you need a source to confirm your that your dentist is in fact licensed, check your state’s dental board website.

Another good idea when selecting a dentist for you or your family is to read reviews about the experiences of others with that dentist. If you can’t find any online reviews, you can try asking friends or family about their experience with their dentist. Some of the questions you might ask yourself when researching about a specific dentist are:
„Do people consistently find this dentist and his staff to be friendly and inviting?“
„Does this dentist provide quality dental work?“
„Is this dentist flexible in working with my specific financial situation and will they accept my health insurance plan?“

Always bear in mind when you are reading reviews or getting feedback from others about the dentist you are researching that people are more likely to go out of their way to write reviews on a business or individual when they have had either a great experience or a terrible one. So the good reviews you read might be amazing, while the bad ones might seem really bad. It’s a good idea to remember that any given dentist is not perfect all the time and may make mistakes occasionally. Also remember that there are other factors to consider when someone does have a negative experience with their dentist, other than the competency or skills of the dentist himself.

When you do decide on a dentist you might like, there are a few more questions you might ask about them before fully committing. Some of them are:

* What are the office hours? Do they have a parking structure?
* If you have an oral emergency, will they be available to help after hours? If not, what other dentistry might you be referred to?
* Is there a list of available anesthetics that this dentist typically uses?
* Does your dentist plan to treat potential problems or existing problems?
* What are the general rates for basic, common procedures like teeth cleaning, fillings, x-rays, etc?

Finding a good dental service and dentist in your area should be a fairly pain-free process. Good luck!
