Three Qualities to Look For in a Great Dentist

Last updated 2 years ago

Maintaining your dental care is essential to promoting your overall health and wellness. With many dental clinics and dentists to choose from, finding the right provider for you and your family is not always an easy task. Brush up on which qualities you should be looking for when choosing a family or cosmetic dental practice to make sure you find the one that’s best for you:

1. Years of Experience and an Excellent Service Record
Research your dentist’s service record to determine his or her level of experience and overall reputation. A good way to do this is to check out testimonials from previous patients, ask your family and friends for referrals, or research your potential dentist online for any instances of disciplinary action.

2. A Variety of Offered Services
You will want to investigate the services offered before making the decision to work with any potential dentist. Look for a dental provider that offers a wide variety of services, including preventive care, restorative care, periodontal or gum care, cosmetic services, dental implants, root canals, orthodontics, tooth whitening, and pediatric dentistry. You will also want to look into the office hours to ensure they will fit in with your schedule.

3. Several Accepted Insurance Plans
Look for a dental provider that accepts a variety of insurance plans. This way, even if your dental insurance changes over the years, your trusted dentist won’t have to. Try to find a dentist that participates as an in-network provider for various PPOs such as Delta Dental, Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare, and United Concordia.
