Finding the Best Dentist for Your Needs

dca-blog_dentist-selection-family

Your dental health is an important part of your overall health. Finding the best dentist takes a little research, but you’ll be much happier with your results if you invest the time in choosing a dentist who gives you the quality care you deserve. To start your search, check with your dental insurance company to determine if you need to choose a dentist who is within the company’s network. Be aware that if you choose an out-of-network dentist, your plan may pay fewer benefits. Once you’ve determined where to look, start researching available providers.

Choosing a dentist is easier if you have your friends and relatives help. Ask about their experiences with their own dentists; this is a great way to learn more about any dentist’s personality and quality of care. Other medical professionals can also help. Ask your doctor, pharmacist, or nurse about recommendations for a trusted, affordable dentist. If you’re relocating to a new area, your current dentist may be able to help. To learn more about a specific dentist’s credentials, contact your local dental society. You can find contact information in your phone book or online.

When you have narrowed your choices to three or four favorite candidates, it’s time to start considering details so you can find the best dentist for your needs. Call each office, and ask for any of the following information that can help you with your selection of an affordable dentist.

  • Standard fees for routine exams, x-rays, or dental cleanings
  • Financing options
  • Location and office hours
  • Process for billing and insurance claims
  • Procedure for after-hours dental emergencies
  • Infection control
  • Appointment reminders
