3 Things to Consider When Choosing a New Dentist
Maybe you’re new to the Charlotte area. Perhaps you’ve changed dental plans or your former dentist retired. Whatever the reason, you need a new local dentist. Where to start?
That’s the first question you might be asking. After all, the whole topic of dentists and dentistry can seem intimidating. That’s why we’ve put together a few very basic considerations to help you on your search. Use one or more of these tips to find the dentist that’s right for you and your family.
No insurance, you may have an option just for you.
If you don’t have dental insurance look for a dental practice that understands the financials around those who don’t. There are offices including Dentistry on Carmel who offer a dental savings option just for those who don’t have dental insurance. These plans have rates that help with the cost of treatment and bring a great value to routine dental care, including your dental cleanings.
Ask the people in your life whose views you trust most what they think of their own dentists. If you’re new in town and don’t know too many people, ask your employer, co-workers, your kids’ teachers or even the real estate agent who sold you your home. After all, word of mouth can tell you much more about a professional than the most beautifully written and designed ad.
Consult the ADA.
The American Dental Association website, at ada.org, lists local and state dental societies. From there, you can call the most relevant organization and ask for recommendations for dentists who are taking patients. Then go the websites and check ‘em out.
Make a Connection
Once you’ve made your initial choice of a new dentist, you’re not stuck with the decision forever. Visit once. If you don’t think the chemistry is right, or if the clinic looks dirty or cluttered, or the services are priced out of your reach, or you have any doubts at all, you can always choose again.In fact, your first choice might help you better determine the factors that mean the most to you — and make you that much more appreciative of the right dentist when you make a connection that sticks.
