How to Choose the Right Dentist for You and Your Family

You and your dentist will be long-term oral health care partners; therefore, you should find someone you can be comfortable with. To find a suitable dentist to meet your needs, consider asking the following questions as a starting point:
  • Reputation. The first important consideration when looking for the perfect dentist is to check his or her reputation. Search online reviews to see what positive or negative experiences patients have had at their dentist.

  • Ask your friends and neighbors where they go for dental work. There is no better way to find a great dentist than to find out who your friends and neighbors trust.

  • What are the office hours? Are they convenient for your schedule?
  • Make sure your dentist meets your needs. Everyone has a certain criteria when they look for the right dental office. Do you need someone that has a focus on children's teeth, adult smile makeovers, orthodontics like Invisalign or senior dental care such as dentured and dental implants.
