Finding a Dentist you Can Trust


Having a dentist that you can trust is just as important as a good family physician, and if you want to keep your families teeth healthy, but need to find a new dentist, don’t have panic. Thanks to the wonders of the World Wide Web, you can find the perfect dentist who specializes in your particular dental needs and the oral health of your family.

Head over to Google or Bing and type in dentists in your area for a good dentist and you will be met with dozens of pages of local dental practices that cater to the lifestyle of you and your family. Narrow your search a bit and you will find dentists who specialize in Pediatric Dentistry and others who pride themselves on Cosmetic Dentistry. If you have been looking for the perfect dentist who can help with your husband’s sleep apnea, the internet can help.

The American Dental Association has a trusted website where you can search for good dentists that the ADA recommends. Add those names to the others that you like from your Google search and you will be well on your way to finding a good dentist.

Make sure that the dentists on your list support your dental insurance policy and ask about fees. Don’t be afraid to shop around if you are in the market for a new dental practice. Check your local Penny Saver or local shopping newspaper and look for dental coupons.

Thoroughly research each dental practices website. Read the About Us page and make sure that the dentist that you have in mind specializes in your needs. Read the testimonials where you will find honest reviews about each dentist on your list. You will want to find a dentist that is continually enrolling in classes and workshops in order to provide patients with cutting edge Cosmetic Dentistry.

After narrowing your list of dentists give the first, second and third choices a phone call. Listen carefully when your call is answered. The way the receptionist answers the phone will give you a good indication as to how the rest of the dental practice is run. Ask the questions that weren’t answered on the website and read the patient testimonials. If pictures weren’t available, find out if the practice has a social media page with a photo gallery.

Once your decision has been made in your search for a good dentist, schedule an appointment. Finding a dentist that you can trust will help you keep your teeth for the rest of your life.
