If you’ve just moved or found yourself in need of locating a new dentist, it can take some time before you find the right one. In fact, many people experience a gap in dental care when they are between dentists, because time simply gets away from them until they experience a dental emergency and find that they need to locate a new dentist as soon as possible. Here are some things to consider when you’re trying to find the best new dentist in your hometown:
Ask your friends who they use.
One of the biggest complements that dentists can receive is to have their existing patients refer their family, friends, and colleagues to the practice. This is a big signal to you as a prospective patient, that the office is doing something great! If your friends absolutely love their dentist and can’t get enough of him or her, then chances are you’ll be happy there as well.
Does the office accept your insurance plan?
Ah, yes, the insurance topic. Finding a care provider that accepts your insurance plan can make a big difference if you have significant treatment needs. Even if the provider isn’t part of the in-network plan, there’s a chance that they can still accept out of network benefits (as long as you are ready to cover the difference.) For the right dentist, this financial aspect can be one of the main factors in your decision.
Find out what type of services the office provides.
Are you considering certain treatments, like cosmetic dentistry, dental implants or braces? Call the office or check out their website to find out if they provide the type of treatment you have in mind, then schedule a consultation to meet with them in person.
