What to Look for in a Dentist

Front sign

Choosing a dentist is an important decision. Your dental care provider will be in charge of your oral health, so considering the options, services, and qualifications of your dentist are crucial. Your ideal dentist should be able to provide the optimum care you need with skill, while also fitting in with your lifestyle and budget. Here is a basic guide to what you should look for in a dentist:

  • Services: A good dentist offers a comprehensive selection of services. You should be able to get your regular dental exams and cleanings, while having options for any restorations or periodontal work, all in one location. Having a dentist who also offers adult orthodontics makes it easier for you to have the clean, healthy, and straight smile you've always wanted.
  • Cosmetic Dentistry: Choose a dentist who also offers cosmetic dentistry services to help your teeth look their best. You should not have to drive around town to see different dentists for all of your dental care needs. The combination of general and cosmetic dentistry services will make your dental health care much easier and more convenient.
  • Sedation Dentistry: If you have any dental fears, make sure to find a dentist who offers sedation dentistry. Options for sedation dentistry treatments include inhalation, pills, and IV medications. Having the option of IV sedation during your dentist appointment can reduce your stress and anxiety, allowing you to obtain the dental care you need while staying relaxed.
  • Affordability: The ability, or inability, to pay for dental treatments is a common obstacle that can stand between patients and their dental care. Some dentist offices offer payment plans through Care Credit, discounts for pre-payment, and senior citizen discounts. Promotional programs such as free exams and x-rays can go a long way toward affordable dental care as well.
